Girls are Playing Important Part [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 25 February 1943

Girls are Playing Important Part Although the percentage of girls en gaged in the vine fruits harvest in the River irrigation areas this season^ is not as great as that of last year* when female labour was first organized for the task. Members of the Wo men's Land Army and other volunteers from the "fairer sex" are playing an important part in this vital under taking. At Renmark there are some 60 Land Army girls—and many other female pickers from within the district as well as from other localities. In the majority of cases, the Land Army recruits are being taken into the homes of growers and accommodated, and the arrangement taken generally seems to be working out entirely satisfactorily to all concerned. The girls are giving general satisfac tion and several are able to report good financial returns. Despite the daylight saving the girls are at their posts by 7.20 each morning, some hav ing already travelled out several miles in the early morning bus. Shorts and shirts are the mos...

FRUIT HARVEST IN FULL SWING SPLENDID ORGANIZATION AND CO OPERATION EVIDENT AS PEAK PERIOD APPROACHES Who is Champion Picker? The vine fruits harvest is now In full swing and with the peak period now in the offing, splendid organization and co-operation is evident. While the labour position cannot be fully assessed un til the "zero hour'", there seems a note of optimism in all centres that the organization of the various labour committees and bureaus, combined with the co-operation of growers and. the willing workers from the many walks of life who hgve volunteered to assist in this vital undertaking, will see the task successfully accomplished. Young Militiamen constitute the ^greatest pingle source o£ labour this .year, with members of the Women's Land Arms', the camp dwellers at Ren mark, and private individuals of both aexes from all corners of the State also included.

UNCERTAINTY HAS PASSED AT BERRI Militiamen Doing Good I Average Pick Berri, February 23. Now that the great uncertainty has passed, and the phones have rung them selves to a standstill, we have an op portunity to take stock of our harvest ing position £or 1943, and we can safely say that Mr. Hunkin has re deemed his promise not to let the fruit rot for the want of labour to pick it. A trip through the district of Berri will reveal rack after rack full of lusicious- grapes, waiting for the warmth- of the sun to transform them into the dried raisins, urgently re quired for our boys at the front. The arrival of the troop train bear ing 300 Militiamen, all of whom had vol unteered to come to our aid, to harvest our crops, brought the long looked for assistance, we had all so urgently re quired, and these men being equally distributed among fruit growing dis tricts, had a most cheering effect! throughout the area.

The Curculio Beetle [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 25 February 1943

The Curculio Beetle The Ciirculio beetle is a little insect that does a great deal of damage to, vegetables, and Incidentally attacks | fifcuife trees to such a& extent that young trees are often almost defoliated. This, little insect attacks tile outer odgee I of the leaves and gradually eats its way to the centre and destroys them. ; The grub also attacks plums, cherries, apricots, pears, peaches and nectar-1 ines. Growers have often told" ine that they have found codling grubs in their apricots and nectarines, but it is more likely to be the grab of the eur culio than the codling. The grub of the eurculio is of a yellpwigh white colour whereas the codling grub is a pinkish colour; they can easily be dis tinguished from one another. The only standard reference boobs we have on insect pests are those' by French published 50 years ago and it is just about time we set about compiling an up-to-date publication. This is a Com monwealth affair and should be under taken t5y a com...
