EFFECT OF WEATHER ON VINE FRUITS "Good Blow from South" Needed [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 18 February 1943
EFFECT OF WEATHER ON VINE FRUITS j "Good Blow from South" Needed By "NEMO" The effect of this week's break in the weather on the vine fruits will not be known for a few days. If we get a "good blow" from the south the damage is not likely to be great. We get these setbacks every fruit season, and it is too much to hope to go right through with an unbroken record of sunshine. There would have been muoh more likelihood of damage if the rain had oc curred a month earlier. When the currants are ripe, as they are now, they can stand a lot of. hammering. * *
