FIGHTING IRISH BLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911

FIGHTING IRISH BLIGHT. With the view of keeping Irish blight out of the Orange district, where the potatoes are so far free of the disease, a meeting of the local farmers adopted the following resolu tions: 1. That this district, being free from blight, it is of the utmost im portance that all possible precautions ,be taken to keep it clean, to which end the Minister for Agriculture be urged to take immediate steps to prohibit the moving of potatoes from infected; districts into clean districts. 2. That since potatoes which are imported from Tasmania and Victoria and are sold in Sydney are often parts of consignments condemned because of blight, it is impossible to send any potatoes from these States into, the country districts of New South Wales without carrying blight germs, and the Minister be asked to prohibit Hie removal of such imported potatoes outside the city of Sydney. 3..That no bags which have once been filled with potatoes or produce be allowed to be sent from Sydney in...

Cultivation FREE STORAGE OF WHEAT. The Most Advantageous Method. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911

^ Cultivation <£ FREE STORAGE OF WHEAT. The Most Advantageous Method. A good deal lias been -written and said against the system of free stor age of wheat as allowed in a number of instances by the large' wheat buy er to the grower. There is, perhaps, something to be said against v the manner in which some firms carry on free storage, but in the generality of cases, the farmer gets fair play, though, naturally, the linn who grants free storage, looks to make some little j>rofit from this accommo dation, even if it is only in having the wheat in store to barter with. Of course, 110 firm guarantees to de liver to the storer the identical grain placed in the shed, but wheat of a similar quality. Then, too, there is the question of paying for the wheat on in-weights, and not on the out weights, which in nine cases out of ten gives some advantage to the firm granting the free storage. But, then, on the other hand, the grower has no worry or risk in the carrying of his wheat...

PICKLING SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911

PICKLING SEED WHEAT. With the approach of the soaring season wheat growers have to consi der whether they are going to pickle their seed or "let it rip." Some of them let it go last year, and were sorry when it came to harvesting smutty crops. Every farmer knows that wheat badly affected with smut is not going to bring him much coin. The miller turns it down naturally. It is the business of the grower to produce clean wheat. Some growers assert that treating the seed has no effect in preventing smut, but the evi dence is against them. It is true enough that the treatment has often resulted in the failure of a good per centage of seed to germinate, but it is certain that the fault lay in the way the treatment was carried out, and not in the principle. The prin ciple of treating seed wheat is sound. What is necessary is that the wheat job should be done properly. There are also legitimate differences of opi nion as to the best treatment, and growers should certainly stick to the metho...
