A DISTILLERY FOR LEETON. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

A DISTILLERY FOR LEETON. So far the question of a distillery at Leeton has not been a "burning" one, yet a good many growers of grapes are anxious to see one on .the Areas. Though there are only some 70 acres of Doradillo vines at presentv planted, it is felt that the pro duce from this small area, aggregating, say, 600 tons, would be rather much for the fresh fruit trade, without making al lowances for those who would like to plant if they were certain of a market at a rea sonable price. The late Commissioner had been in touch with most of the large distillers throughout Australia, but without result. In fact, until lately no representative of such a firm had even visited the Areas. Recently, however, as a result of previous negotiations, Mr. Robert Hardy, senior partner in the firm of Thos. Hardy & Sons, of Adelaide, travelled to Leeton, and interviewed a number of growers. At this time Mr. Hardy stated that his offer to settlers would be £3/10 per ton on a basis of 15 by ...

VEGETABLE GROWING. Calendar for July. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

VEGETABLE GROWING. Calendar for July. Peas can still be sown. Varieties and method as last month. Tomatoes.-Make further small sowings, same varieties. Carrots and Beetroot.-Good time for large sowing; varieties as recommended. Lettuce.-New York, Drumhead. Asparagus and Rhubarb. If the planting of these crops be not completed, it is advisable to do so as soon as possible. The best method in preparng for root crops is, after the land has been well ploughed and harrowed, to run a furrow (a 'Planet Junior Cultivator, with mould boards, I find the best), 3 or 4 feet apart, thereby making a slightly raised bed; sow two or three rows of seeds on each bed. The distance between each furrow de pends on the class of soil. On sandy loam they can be wider apart, but I -wouldn't advise much more than 4 ft. IIOGBIN.

Dairying. A REVIEW OF WORK ON THE IRRIGATION AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

Dairying. A REVIEW OF WORK ON THE IRRIGATION AREAS, A lecture on the above subject was de livered by M. A. O'Callaghan, State Dairy Expert, in the Leeton School of Arts on 12th June last, under the auspices of the Agricultural Bureau. The condensed re port which follows contains much of in terest to the Settlement: General Outlook.-In discussing dairying at the moment, the lecturer said one must consider the general outlook as far as the industry was concerned. As most people were aware, the dairying, industry depend . ed almost entirely for its success on the value of the export trade. If we were to cater for Australia only, we would not. require more than one-third, or certainly, not more than half of the area which is now occupied in dairying throughout Aus tralia. The extremely disturbed condition of the world to-day must also be taken into account. When it is remembered, for instance, that the price of butter for Australia, for many months of the year, is fixed in Copenhagen, i...

SAFE INVESTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

SAFE INVESTMENTS A clutch or two of early chickens. They are most likely to become laying hens when eggs are worth money. * * h« * A plot of vegetables-spray irrigated if necessary with the watering can. The time spent in the kit chen garden will probably return more per hour in cash than the time spent anywhere else on the farm. Try it and see. % * * * As many pigs as can be fed and looked after pro perly. The Bacon Factory is ready to open; the bigger its output, the less per lb. will be its working expenses and the greater the settlers' profits. See to it that it works full time. * * * * A fodder supply sufficient to meet all emergen cies;, even if there is a' considerable surplus and prices next season are not very high, hay well stacked will keep, and goocH prices will surely come again. * * * * A thorough ploughing of the orchard and all lands intended to be cropped. August is perhaps the best month to put this work in hand. sK * If another investment is still wanted, do not f...

Fruit Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

Fruit Notes. B7 W. J. ADAMS. Pruning Young Trees Just Planted. If the voting trees are well headed, select what you think are the three best branches. Aim at getting two on the westerly side if possible, and one on the eastern side, and get them spaced as evenly as possible. Cut these branches back to about 4in. or 6in. with the top bud on the outside in other words, cut to the outside bud. Make the cut about iin. above the bud; this will tend,to throw the young shoot outwards and spread the tree. Any other limbs that there are should be cut close up to the stem. If; the tree is not well headed or the branches are very weak, cut it to a straight stick; that is to say, trim off the branches but not too close to the stem, or you will injure the base bud where the young shoot comes from. Cut such trees so that the top bud faces the west; cut them off about 15in. from the ground, if there are sufficient buds on the trunk. Be careful of this, because the buds are sometimes rubbed off, an...

Successful Orchard Trees. RESULTS FROM THE YANCO EXPERIMENT FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

Successful Orchard Trees. RESULTS FROM THE YANCO EXPERIMENT FARM. One of the primary objects in view in establishing the Ifanco Experiment Farm was the obtaining of data in regard to the growth of fruit trees which would be use ful to the settlers in future years. The trees at the farm planted in the years 1908 and 1909 have now reached such a stage of maturity as to allow of certain general isations being made. It is proposed in following issues to pub lish a series of articles dealing at some length with the different varieties of the various fruits which have been success fully grown at the Yanco Experiment Farm, but as the planting season , is now upon settlers, it is felt that the gist of this information to be of any use during the present season should be immediately in their hands. It has, therefore, been decided to publish the following short summary of the fuller information which will be published later. As the result of experience gained at the farm, the following variet...

FRUIT TREES FOR MIRROOL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

FRUIT TREES FOR MIRROOL. ? < r _ _ 11 Arrangements have been made tor an fruit trees ordered by Mirrool settlers to be delivered at the Land Settlement Branch. The trees will be handed over by that branch to settlers when the bond, etc., in connection therewith has been signed. A Wisconsin settler lost a number of pure-bred Poland China pigs and blamed their consuming too much rocksalt. The veterinary officer at the experiment sta tion, in referring to the matter, pointed out that salt is very necessary for pigs, and should be kept before them at all times, either as rocksalt or fine salt. He preferred to mix the salt with charcoal or copperas, in the proportion of 101b. of salt, 25 lb. charcoal, and 2 lb. copperas. Although pigs eat a considerable quantity of this, it does much towards keeping them in good condition. The Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station has determined that the average amount of manure produced by one cow in a year is approximately 9 tons. A dair...

RAINFALL RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

'RAINFALL RECORDS. 'The following table is taken from the '"Narandera Argus." Widgiewa station figures, are given for the years prior to. the appointment of an official recorder at Narandera. The information is worth preserving owing to the long period of time it covers. As a general thing the Widgiewa and Narandera figures for the year do not differ materially from 'those registered at Leeton. That is to say, the local differences that do necessarily occur have not an important effect on the year's figures taken in the aggregate. A drought according to the. Widgiewa record would be a drought at Leeton, and a year of abundant precipitation at one place would be the same at the other. Mears. Rainfall. Years.

THE PRUNING OF ROSES. (J.T.D.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

THE PRUNING OF ROSES. (J.T.D.) In ordinal y seasons in the West, roses should be pruned towards the end of July-if pruned too early the new season's growth is forced before its time, and is liable to be seriously checked by late frosts. In pruning rose^, three main classes are to be considered, each requiring a differ ent treatment. Indeed, there is no rule of thumb method, varieties of the same class often requiring quite different treat ment to their fellows. Each plant is in itself a special case; experience alone teaches the correct cutting back of each. A general rose-growing axiom is. "Cut back hard all weak-growing plants." The more robust need not be dealt with' so drastically. With a young- tree select about four of the strongest canes, and cut back to about three eyes, always leaving the top eye facing outward. This takes the growth away from the centre, and makes provision for sunlight. - With strong growers leave from 18in. to 2 feet of wood from the stock. With older pl...

Agistment. Owing to the start given to the grass and herbage by the recent rains, agist ment country will be made available for the use of settlers immediately sufficient growth to warrant that action being taken. In these circumstances the time is opportune to draw attention to the rules and regulations printed governing agist ment of stock on the Areas. Herewith are copies of certain forms used in connection with the matter, including that which settlers are required to fill in, giving par ticulars, brands, etc., of the stock they wish to place on agistment.

Pruning Demonstrations at Yanco Experiment Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

Pruning Demonstrations at Yanco Experiment Farm. It-is understood that up to the present time settlers generally have not availed themselves of the opportunity of visiting the Experiment Farm for the purpose of witnessing the methods adopted for prun ing the various deciduous trees and vines. Most of the deciduous trees have now been pruned, but there is still a certain amount of work to be done, particularly on the vines, which should be of sufficient interest to make it worth the while of set tlers to visit, the farm. Information could be obtained when settlers visit the Ad ministrative Offices, Leeton, as to the ex act dates upon| which the orchardist would be carrying out any given work. The Offices are connected with the farm by telephone, and it would be a comparatively simple matter to obtain this information for any inquirer. The experience gained at the farm dur ing the past six or seven years should be very valuable to settlers, and more infor mation of real importance cou...
