THE MINISTER'S MEETING AT MIRROOL. Reports regarding the meetings held at Leeton and Yanco diiring the recent visit of the Hon. the Minister for Lands and Agriculture, were published in the last is sue of the ''Record." The series is now completed by the following note of the Mirrool meeting. , This gathering was under the auspices '.of the Mirrool Settlers' Association, and was held at Hanwood Hall at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 3. There was a large and representative body of settlers present. The main object was to lay before the Minister arguments in support of a request to grant to settlers on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas five years' remission of rent. The case was put by Messrs. G. Dwyer president), Hawkins, Johnson, Baring, Stranger, and Crase. It was argued that it often required £200 to clear and fence a farm, and that settlers arriving with only £300 cash were in financial difficulties be fore the end of the first 18 months; that all those who are going in for orcharding, i...

THE LIGHT WINE PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

THE LIGHT WINE PROPOSITION. On each of his visits to the Areas, M. Blunno has strongly advocated the plant ing by settlers of a small area of grapes suitable for the production of a light wine similar to the vin ordinaire of wine-drink ing Europe. He strongly believes that ii a start were made by settlers on co operative lines the production of a wine of this nature, much lighter than any now produced in any quantity in New South Wales, would gradually work into a very feg industry. . Similar views were recently expressed by one of the. experts connected with the Victorian Department of Agriculture, who pointed out that a new outlook of import ance for irrigation areas had arisen owing to the action of Russia in prohibiting - ytidka*' and cither intoxicating liquers with out at the same time prohibiting the drinking of light wine. As a matter of fact, such wine consumption had been en couraged. Russia herself cannot pro duce large quantities of wine of this char acter, and France, t...

Spring Sown Maize. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

Spring Sown Maize. BY R. McDIARMID. Spring sown maize on the Areas has invariably given bad returns, while the midsummer sowing has given good re- sults. This is probably accounted for by the fact that early spring sown crops of maize reach the tasselling and cobbing stage of growth at a period of the year when drying winds and our most severe sun temperatures are experienced. In a drought season such as that of 1914-15 duststorms have also added to the maize grower's difficulties. These extreme wea- ther conditions are usually considerably abated when the midsummer sown maize reaches the critical stage of development. The adverse conditions dry out the moisture too rapidly, and also hinder proper fertilisation of the grain. The moisture must be maintained in the soil for good yields, and with midsummer sow- ing this is more readily accomplished. The rain that falls during the autumn months also assists very largely with the growth of grain. For the successful growth with spring sow...

WORK THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

WORK THE LAND. A very striking illustration of the great improvement that takes place in poor quality land when it is constantly worked on the right lines was recently given by a contributor to the "Mildura Cultivator." "My first drop in was at a biock that was once a clay-pan horse paddock, but which now, in all normal seasons, carries very fair crops of sultanas and currants. When the vines were planted, holes 2 feet in depth were dug for them and filled with top-soil. The proprietors think this part of the reason they have come through hot seasons so well; the other is that gypsum and the cultivator have made a fight to create a tilth. Currants on this block this year have dropped extensively, but. the sultanas are hanging very well. The vines are what they are on this one hopeless block through systematic work ing of the land." Summed up, it would appear that the application of lime or gypsum (which is practically the same thing in this parti cular instance), and thorough cultiv...

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1915

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SETTLERS. Some months back inquiries were made by the immigration representatives of the State in London in regard to the possi bilities of giving a guarantee that employ ment with farmers on the Irrigation Areas would be found for sons of city men in England desirous of coming to Australia and taking up agricultural pursuits. It was pointed out in reply that a guaran tee could not be given at the present stage of the development of the Irrigatidn Areas. In order to take the matter a step fur ther, however, a suggestion was made to the London authorities that they might ascertain whether lads of the class re ferred to would desire any payment while they were obtaining experience on irri gation farms, and to this a reply has been received, to the effect that, owing to the war, the proposed advertising campaign would not be entered upon at present, ? ut there is sufficient evidence to show that there would be a considerable number of bona-fide applicants anxious ito...

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

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (By J. T. D.) It is almost too late for spring flower ing annuals, and such seedlings as are now on hand should be planted out at once. Vacancies in massed beddings should be filled, otherwise the effect later on will be marred by discordant breaks * in the contour. Bulbs of all sorts should be well above ground and making vigorous growth. The ground around all seedlings and bulbs should be cultivated and kept free from weeds. Remember that good flow ers are only produced from well-grown plants. Ground might now be prepared to re ceive deciduous trees and shrubs, which should receive attention during the months of June and July. A few suit able deciduous plants for the West are: - Trees: Jacaranda Mimosafolia. In full flower nothing can surpass in effect the dense mass of sky-blue bloom produced by this most desirable tree. It does well in the west, and can strongly be re commended. White cedar. This tree creates a litter of seeds and leaves, and should no*t be pl...
