AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914

AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS.-: Testing clover, - grass seed, etc.: Take two common plates and get. two pieces of cotton cloth-: about the 'size of the plates. Dip -the `cloths into warm water and spread one of them on a plate. Take a handful from the seed that is to be tested and place it on the table. Count out 100 seeds., Scatter these upon the' wet cloth' on the plate. Spread the other cloth over the seed and press it down. Then turn the. other plate upside down on the plate with the seeds, leaving the cor ners of the cloths sticking out between the plates. Place where it is reason ably warm, and keep the cloths moist by sprinkling with water two or three times .a day. Keep a record of the number of seeds that have sprouted each day, until no more seeds show signs of life. A week is as long as this should-take. If ninety to.ninety five seeds- grow, the germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value ofthe seed begins to be doubt ful. "

COUNCIL OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. AN UNNECESSARY BODY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 22 June 1914

COUNCIL OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. --4t---- AN UNNECESSARY BODY. The Council of Agricultural Education has long outlived its usefulness. It was created in-1884 to supervise the newly-established agricultural colleges )ookie and Longerenong, and to manage an endowment of 150,000 acres of land reserved in different parts of the State. The metibership numbers tleven-three trustees appointed by the Government, two members nominated, by tlhe Government, the Director of Agriculture and five representatives of agricultural societies, who are elected for three- years. Although the council may have been useful during the- last generation, when agricultural education had its beginnings, the times have swept past it, and it has come to be rcga"ded 1(says the "Age") as something in the nature of a departmental joke.
