A NORMAL DAY'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

A NORMAL DAY'S WORK. The United States Department of Agri culture is carrying out some investiga tions with a view to arriving at what constitutes a normal day's work on the farm. In a recently published bulletin, no less than 47 schedules were utilised to set out the results of the investigation to date. The figures, it is stated, do not represent either the maximum or the minimum, but just an average, arrived at by taking figures collected from various portions of the American Commonwea1th. Soils of all kinds have been included in making the average. The figures may be of practical value in enabling men with limited experience on the Irrigation Areas to calculate whether they are getting a fair result for a fair day's labor, or whether their energies are being badly applied. One table shows a normal day's work with a walking plough. For a two-horse team the acreage varied from H to 2 acres according to the width of the sod turned and the depth of the ploughing. The wider the sod a...

Milk-fed Hens. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

Milk-fed Hens. Experience in this country has shown that skim milk allowed to sour cleanly is one of the best of pig or calf foods, and as a food for hens it is of great value. In fact, well soured skim milk appears to be a better food than sweet skim milk. In certain countries where the use of butter milk and soured milk is more general than it is in Australia it is found that people using a liberal quantity of this food, which is so heavily charged with lactic acid bac teria, are wonderfully healthy, so much so that scientists have prepared lactic bacilli in tablet form grown and culti vated from the lactic acid of buttermilk produced in these countries. This tablet form of lactic acid is used by medical men for souring milk to be given to patients, it being considered that lactic acid derives its health-giving qualities from the power it possesses of killing many other germs found present in the digestive tract. This being the case with human beings, there is no reason whatever t...

IMPORTED FODDER AND FOOTAND-MOUTH DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

IMPORTED- FODDER AND EOOT AND-MOUTH DISEASE. In. his recent lecture, Mr. M. A. O'Cal? laghan referred in strong terms to the danger of introducing foot-and-mouth dis ease-one of the most dreadful diseases to which cattle are subject-with import ed fodder, and owing to the extraordinary state of affairs in the world to-day, in all probability Australia will in the near future be importing large quantties of fodder from possibly the United States and. Argentina. " I must," he said, " draw attention to the fact that at the present time the United States is unfortunately afflicted with the severest attack of foot-and-mouth disease in cattle that has ever been knowii in the history of that country. This is one of the factors which has operated tb cause a shortage of meat, and it is also going to influence butter production, ow ing to slaughter being the only method adopted for wiping out the disease.

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

CONSERVE THE RAINFALL. Mr. F. B. Lindfield, Director of the Montana Agricultural Experimental Sta tion, recently gave some sound advice to new irrigators through the columns of the "Reclamation Record." The following ex tracts fit our conditions very well: "Many people think that as they have an abundance of irrigation water there is no need of conserving the natural rainfall. This is a great mistake. We have found in Montana that almost without excep tion it pays to cultivate the irrigated land early in the spring. This conserves the moisture in the ground, and warms up the soil. In this way it is possible to hold enough water, when coupled with the spring rainfall, to support the plants until they are large enough to shade the ground before irrigation water need be applied. If the land has to be irrigated to bring up the crop or to carry it through the early period of growth in the spring the yield is frequently reduced 25 to 50 per cent "Again, judging from the practice, some peo...

CRAB-HOLEY LAND. Its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

CRAB-HOLEY LAND. Its Origin. . ~ .. -,1 TV T _ ["Ibis" is not at all satisfied wixn ivir. McDiarmid's theory, published in last is sue, and he sets out his own views very clearly in the following letter. It may be stated that the late Commissioner^ held views very similar to those expressed by "Ibis."-Ed.] The Editor,. "Irrigation Record." Sir,-Mr. McDiarmid's remarks on crab holes are very interesting, but I think his conclusions are open to some objections. The term "crab-holey," as applied to cer tain areas of land, lends itself to some confusion. In this respect I don't think Mr. McDiarmid means that the wind de posits are the cause of crab-hole ground, but rather that the puffs are indicative of the character of the underlying soil. To say why those little convexities, if formed by winds, are so uniform in shape and size instead of wave-like and irregular, as in coastal sand-dunes; and what becomes of them in non-crab-hole land, would be diffi cult. And if it could be proved th...

Summer Fodders. EXPERIMENT PLOTS ON THE MURRUMBIDGEE IRRIGATION AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1915

Summer Fodders. EXPERIMENT PLOTS ON THE MUR- RUMBIDGEE IRRIGATION AREAS. ---- BY R. McDIARMID. - The following report has been prepared from the results of experiments conducted on the Areas during the past summer. The summer was remarkably free from rain, very hot, and winds very frequent. This necessitated very frequent watering and cultivating. The crops under trial were Early Amber Cane, Sorghum Saccha- ratum, Planter's Friend, Mazzagua, Cow- peas, Maize and Cowpeas and Planter's Friend mixed. Various manures and mix- tures were compared with plots sown with out manure. The results show that with such a bad season, sorghum can be grown successfully on almost all the soils. The stiff red clay and wind-swept soils being the most unsuitable, while the grey soils have yielded very well. In some instances, however, the yields have, scarcely paid for the water and cultivation given the crop. The Japanese variety of millet was not included in the trials, for it is already ex- tensively...

WALNUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

WALNUTS. A great deal of interest is taken by visitors in the walnut grove at the Ex periment farm, owing, no doubt, to the fact that walnut production has not so far been carried on in the State of New South Wales on a scale of any great mag nitude. Whether the grove at the Ex periment Farm will turn out to be a first class commercial success is a matter that will not be definitely settled for some years to come, owing to the age of wal nut trees before they come into anything like full profit. In a recent communica tion, however, the Department's Fruit Expert reports that many of the walnuts at the Experiment Farm are doing very well. A few, however, are showing signs of blight. The department has also had occasional complaints about the husks be coming sunburnt during very hot wea ther. The trees were imported from America, and have been planted on good farm soil. There shouldTbe a good opening for wal nut growing in Australia, as at the pre sent time imported nuts have largely t...

SUSPENSION OF RENT AND SAVINGS BANK LOANS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

SUSPENSION OF RENT AND SAVINGS BANJjE LOANS. ; Some time ago an intimation was pub lished in these columns to the effect that there-was nothing ) to prevent a settler ob taining a savings bank loan, and at the same time also arranging to have one year's rent suspended in accordance with $he terms of the Act, provided he had sufficient improvements on his block to allow of both forms of assistance being granted. / The Savings Bank Commissioners, as is well known, have power to grant loans up to 75 per cent, of the value of otherwise unencumbered improvements of certain classes, and Section 19 of the Irrigation Act provides that the Commissioner may, for any one year of a tenancy, suspend for a period not exceeding three years the payment by the occupier of any part of the rent for that year "not exceeding 75 per cent, of the value of the unen cumbered "permanent improvements ef fected by the occupier on the land leas ed^ It is, therefore, apparent that if a sfettler has obtained a Sa...

RICE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

RICE CULTIVATION. In a number of American exchanges lately, reference has been made to the success which has been achieved with rice cultivation on western irrigation projects, where the conditions as to soil and cli mate would appear to approximate those of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas. Inquiries made of the Department of Agri culture, both of New South Wales and Victoria, tend to show, however, that so far very meagre results have followed ef forts to cultivate rice in Eastern Australia. The following extracts from official corres pondence on the subject speak for them selves : New South Wales.-"The majority of this deparement's experiments in the past with the cultivation of rice have been in connection with the Upland variety-that is, a variety grown without irrigation. So far the efforts in this direction have not been comercially successful. "In regard to growing rice under irriga tion, although the department carried out some experiments many years ago at one or two of t...

Fruit Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

Fruit Notes. Mr. W. J. Adams has asked that the following article should be reprinted from the "Fruit World." It is, he says, a good summary of the advice given to settlers on the Irrigation Areas in the subjects of planting, pruning, spraying, and drain age: Spraying.-Continue to spray with emulsified red oil (winter strength) all de ciduous trees that are infested with San Jose, Mussel, and Olive scales, or Red Spider. Spray vines that are affected with Vine Scale. Vine Scale is found mostly on vines, but it also spreads to deciduous trees, particularly plums, and attacks gar den plants. The insect is a reddish color, the scale is brown, large in size, and of oval shape. If spraying citrus trees, the emulsion must be considerably weaker than that applied to deciduous trees or vines at this season. Peach trees should also be sprayed with oil for black and green aphis. General Notes.-Pruning should be well in hand by this time. Not only each variety, but each tree has its own indivi...
