Fruit Notes. Protection of Young Citfus Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

Fruit Notes. BY W. J. ADAMS. Protection of Young Cilfus Trees. _ -- - . .. . 1 * In a previous issue I advised the plant ing of maize between the rows of the young citrus orchard, to be used to pro tect the young trees from frost during the first year. The time has now ar rived to cover these young trees. Cut the maize off near the ground with a sla,nting cut, so that it will push into the soil easily.: Place about 6 or.8 of these stalks of maize around each tree, accor ding to size, push the stalks into the soil around the tree about a foot away, draw the tops together, an4 tie with a piece of binder twine above the top of the tree. The bands saved from the chaff-cutter come in handy for this purpose. If the corn being used is 6 or 8 feet high, cut it in lengths long enough to tie well above the tree. Use the piece with the most leaves on. If the tree has made good growth, do not try to cover every leaf or branch. The main portion of the tree is all that needs covering. If you have...

The Minister s Meetings. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

The Minister s Meetings, On. the occasion of the visit of the Min ister for Lands and Agriculture (Hon. W. G. Ashford) to the Irrigation Areas on 1st instant, he met deputations from the local progress associations and the settlers generally. So many matters were dis cussed that it is not possible in this issue to do much more than give shortly the Minister's replies to the representations made. 1. Yanco Progress Association. Punt at Euroley.-The deputation ask ed for the establishment of a punt direct from Euroley, and, in support of the re quest, pointed out that there were enough pigs on the other side of the river to guarantee the working of the local bacon factory. It was estimated that 400 per m^nth could be easily supplied. There were also a large number of cows on the other side (about 250 in milk), and their produce could also be sent to the local butter factory. There was an irrigation settlement on the other side of the river that was being developed by a private firm, an...

Instructional Notes. PASTURE GRASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

Instructional Notes. By H. R. Alexander. PASTURE GRASSES. "Rhodes" Grass.-Some twelve months ago many settlers on the Areas planted "Rhodes" grass. Almost without excep tion this autumn sowing proved more or less a failure. I'. September last several sections were planted out with "Rhodes^" and during the past autumn months these September-sown" paddocks have been well worth a visit of inspection. Considering the season passed through when all ger mination and subsequent growth had to be encouraged by irrigation without any help from nature, it is very satisfactory to note that "Rhodes" grass, once it be gan to really feel its roots, grew with great rapidity, and rapidly formed a splendid dense sward of grass averaging full three feet high throughout the pad dock. "Rhodes" grass on the Areas seems to. take a considerable time to germinate and develop a reasonable growth, but once these initial stages have passed, the grass simply bounds forward. Settlers would do well to seriously c...

The Town Plan of Leeton. (Continued from Last Issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

The Town Plan of Leeton. BY WALTER BURLEY GRIFFIN (DESIGNER OF FEDERAL CAPITAL). (Continued from Last Issue.) [The illustration hereunder has been reproduced from a sketch prepared by Mr. W. Burley Griffin, to accompany his article, the continuation of which from last issue is published overleaf . The picture gives Mr. Griffin's conception of the central plaza at Leeton, when the twin water tower to the one already built has been constructed; the plaza laid out according to plan; and public buildings of suit able architectural design erected on either side of the roadway. . As pointed out in his article, one of the distinctive features of the township of Leeton will be the main entrance between the water towers, which, being prominent landmarks, will be visible from all around the district. Attention might also be drawn to the effect whtch has been produced in the sketch by the native trees that are scattered about the plaza. Mr. Griffin has a very high opinion indeed of the decorat...

Moniy in Hay; fe; Prospective Value of Areas' Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

Moniy in Hay; fe; Prospective Value of Areas' Crops. Mr. W. J. Allen, Consulting Irrigation Expert to the Commission, has asked that the special attention of settlers on the Irrigation Areas be drawn to the prospects that exist (owing to the continued dry ness of the season) of high prices ruling for the hay crops which will result from the sowings now being made. Even in the event of there being an excellent spring, stocks are so short everywhere that it is more than likely good prices will continue to rule, and if the present dry conditions continue, high prices are al most inevitable. In the circumstances, therefore, it is advisable for every effort to be made to put down as large an area to hay crops as possible. Even if the work has to be done in a rough-and ready way on virgin soil, the chances are all in favor of satisfactory returns. result ing from small yields. All available land not occupied by other crops should be sown to wheat or oats if at all possible. One thing whic...

APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT. Recent notices in the "Irrigation Re cord" to the effect tjiat inquiries have been made for the employment on the Irrigation Areas have resulted in several settlers being brought into touch with ap plicants for work who are prospective blockholders. Another application has just been received from a young English man who writes from Glen Imres. He desires to visit the Areas with a view to taking up land, and would like to obtain a situation for a time. He would be prepared to accept £1 per week and boaM on an irrigation farm.

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

THE FLOWER GARDEN. By J. T. D. No, garden is complete without a col lection of roses. One of the easiest ways to propagate this universal favorite is by means of cuttings. A few, such as Beaute Inconstante Grace Darling, Doctor Caze ne;uve, Penelope, and Lyon Rose, are hard to raise in this manner, but all the old and familiar types-Maman Cochet, La France, Marie Van Houte Frau Karl Dru schki, Madam Aliel Chatenav, Kaiserin Augusta, &c.-strike readily from cut ting3. Now is the time to p'ant these cuttings. When planting cuttings of the ordinary kind, make sure that you plant a piece of year-oM wood; fresh young roots are of no avail. Take a shoot and lop off the top, leaving about five leaves. Strip off three of these and then plant in sandy soil, covering the three eyes from which the leaves have been stripped. A big percentage of these cuttings should strike. A more certain method still is to take a one-year-old branch with a trans verse piece of two-year-old wood, about ...

Fresh Grapes for Export. HUGE POSSIBILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1915

Fresh Grapes for Export. HUGE POSSIBILITIES. The "Daria" (Ohanez) is about to come into its own according to Mr. F. De Cas tella, Viticultural Expert to the Victorian Department of Agriculture. It appears that this grape in the past has not been largely planted in the Mildura district; in fact, at a recent meeting of experts and others interested in the proposal to pro vide cool storage at Mildura for fresh fruit in transit to the Melbourne market, a statement was made by one gentleman, that at the present time there were less than 4 acres of Darias at Merbein, but he, himself, at Mildura, expects to harvest 8 tons from his Ohanez vines this season. He considered that in their maturity these vines should return from 8 to 9 tons of fresh fruit p-r acre. Moreover. Darias do well on resistant stocks, and are reported to give a fair yield 15 months from the graft. Unfortunately,- no .in formation appears to have been given at the meeting (says the "Mildura Cultiva tor") as to the best r...
