TREATMENT OF FRUIT TREES AFTER TAKING DELIVERY FROM THE NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

TREATMENT OF FRUIT TREES AFTER TAKING DELIVERY FROM THE NURSERY. The attention of settlers obtaining trees from the Leeton Nursery is special ly drawn to the following points that are of very great importance: 1. All deciduous trees should be taken delivery of not later than the first week in August, and planted at latest by the last week in August. The best months to plant are June and July. 2. Damp bags should be provided for covering the young trees when taken from; the nursery, thus preventing exposure of the roots to wind and sun. 3. A suitable trench, according to the number of trees to be heeled in, should be previously prepared to receive the. trees upon arrival at the farm. The trench should be at least ten inches deep and eighteen inches across. 4. The bundles should be suitably and legibly labelled, and a stake or board placed between the varieties in the trenches to prevent any chance of their becoming mixed. 5. A suitable plan should be made of the orchard when planting...

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

Agistment. Following on the information published last issue, attention is now invited to the details of the arrangements made for the p.^is+ment of settlers' stock. Yanco-Agistment paddocks have been set apart in different sections of the Areas, and an effort will be made to accommo date settlers' stock in the paddocks near est their holdings. Page's Grass and Windmill paddocks would suit settlers in the district west of the township and south of the Hay canal. Diamond Hill, Garry's, Maybon and Quondong paddocks are all in one block, and will suit the majority of settlers in the vicinity of Yanco Siding and Leeton township. Mountain Dam paddock for the time being will be set apart for settlers near Brobenah, with McNeil's paddock for the use of Stoney Point settlers. Settlers are .requested to arrange with the Land Settlement Office as to the paddock in which their stock is to be placed on agistment, and they should fill in the forms already submitted and mentioned in the "Record."...

Lucerne. SOME GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

Lucerne. SOME GENERAL NOTES. By H. R. Alexander. One of the most valuable, leguminous hay and forage crops grown in New South Wales or any other country where the climate is suited to its successful growth -lucerne has justly been called .the "King of Fodders." In New South Wales it has been grown for a considerable number of years, the Hunter River district being one of the first localities in New South Wales to prove the great value of this fodder plant. Lucerne is now grown in many districts previously deemed unsuitable. It is a deep-rooting perennial, and is well adapted to withstand extremes of tem perature, and even considerable drought periods. There is hardly any district in New South Wales where lucerne will not grow. It prefers a. warm climate, and given plenty of moisture will yield ex cellent returns if grown on suitable soil. Under favorable conditions lucerne will last from 10 to 20 years without being re-seeded-in fact, on the Hunter River paddocks of lucerne are in e...

A Message from the Premier. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

A Message from the'" Premier. -Since the commencement of the present war many difficulties havfl united to prevent Australia taking the share in it to which her popula tion, wealth, and favored position call her. During the earlier months the numbers of men offering were greater than the number which the Government could organise and despatch to the front. These difficuties have now, however, apparently disappeared. The moment has arrived when the citizens of this great Commonwealth are called upon by the Heads of the Empire to freely offer themselves for" the general defence. My colleagues and myself, after consideration, have decided to employ the whole of the resources of the State Govern ment in a vigorous effort to secure for the Commonwealth the additions of strength which are rightly expected from our populous and powerful State. We accordingly invite every man between the aged of 19 and 40, who> is unmarried, physically capable of military servfcte, and not burdened with ...

Bee Keeping. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

Bee Keeping. [The following very interesting paper by Mr. G. Agars was read before the - Rerimark Agricultural Bureau some time ago, and afterwards published in the "Murray Pioneer." It contains much of interest to settlers on any irrigation area, particularly where there are many men with little knowledge of bee-keeping. Numbers of settlers would like to go in for a few hives of bees if they felt that they knew anything about them. Mr. Agars' remarks on "Making a Start" should prove the very thing such men have been looking for. Settlers who are contemplating grow ing lucerne seed crops are strongly ad vised to have several well-established hives of bees adjacent to their lucerne paddock. The bee is invaluable for cross fertilisation purposes, and the seed must be cross fertilised to be of proper germinating quality. The same thing applies to a great ex tent in orchard work, without the assist ance of bees and other insects, the fruit crops would suffer (vide paragraph pub lished i...

Apple Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

Apple Culture. In the last issue of the "Irrigation Re cord" a short reference was made to the results obtained at the Yanco Experi ment Farm during the past year in con nection with the culture of apples. Full er information is now published covering the ground already shortly traversed, as well as other points in connection with the matter not yet touched upon. Most Successful Varieties. Granny Smith.-The Granny Smith probably takes pride of place. It is a well known dual-purpose apple, and one of the best keepers. Some of those grown at the farm and placed in store this season were picked on 22nd March last, and they will be kept may be until September. According to results this variety is doing just as well at Yanco as in the metropolitan and other districts, where it is already largely grown and favorably known. The trees were plant ed in 1908, and are bearing heavily . This year, they returned easily 2 bushels to the tree, although the soil in which they are planted is far fro...

Selection of Roses (J.T.D.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

Selection of Roses (J.T.D.) The setting out of roses can be under taken with advantage this month. Those whose gardens are in the making should not omit to plant now a selection of these universally favorite flowering plants. No garden can be considered complete without a collection-great or small-of roses. From the multitude of varieties in the catalogues it is sometimes difficult to make a satisfactory choice. Three points ,;to be considered are beauty of flower, length of flowering season, and strength and vigor of / the varieties chosen. The roses which>flowerr almost, the whole of the year round are the Teas and Hybrid Teas. If not many plants are to be purchased, the selection* should be confined almost en tirely to these sections. In outlining twenty-four desirables, I would include: Pink Maman Cochet, White Maman Cochet, Frau Karl Druschki, Madam Abel Chatenay, Kaiserin Augusta Victoria, Mil dred Grant, Belle Seibrecht, Rhea Read, t k v uq .1* ' . 7 Beaute Inconstante, Jo...

Crab-Holey Land. ITS ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

§ Crab-Holey Land. ITS ORIGIN. 'Still another theory is advanced to ac count for crab holes. Mr. D. Ryan, of Farm 405, Leeton, writes:-"I read with interest Mr. McDiarmid's article in a recent "Record" on crab-holey or puffy land. I cannot agree with the Inspector's theory on the matter, as the puffs or hil locks, when examined, will be found to be pure subsoil, made very fertile by the action of the heat of the sun. I found this to be the true solution of the matter in the following way:-Last summer a big dust-storm blew the top soil off patches of land in Golgeldie, close to here, and exposed the subsoil, which, after about a month's sun began to rise like dough in an oven, and then formed into the ordinary hillocks. These hillocks are only found on land where the topsoil is shallow and easily blown away. li/Ir. McDiarmid's argument is correct as far as sheltered places, such as box flats, etc., are concerned, where dust and other mat ter is drifted in causing unevenness of the la...

Carry Live Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

Carry Live Stock. BY H. R. ALEXANDER. In the recent lecture delivered by Mr. O'Callaghan on dairying matters, he touched briefly on the great value derived from the carrying of live stock on a farm. He pointed out that, on a dairy farm where all the skim milk is utilised in feed ing pigs and calves and the only product leaving the farm is butter fat, the farmer is really maintaining the full value of his land from a fertility point of view. Even when animals are sold off a farm they take but very little of the available soil constituents with them. As a matter of fact, they practically return to the land as much as they take from it. In an American publication to hand an interesting comparison is given, and it is stated when animals or milk products are sold off the farm only a small proportion of the fertility of the entire crop is sold, while the greater part of the fertilising elements is returned to the soil in the form of barnyard manure. The fertilising value of common grains ...

PLANTING PEAS FOR GREEN MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

PLANTING PEAS FOR GREEN MANURE. An interesting note on this subject ap peared in a recent issue of the "Mildura Cultivator." It was observed that peas, which had been ploughed in, gave very much better and more vigorous results than those that had been merely drilled in. Speaking to the owner of the block, the following information was obtained: ''After having watered, if the weather is hot and peas are to be drilled in, the sur face of the earth into which the seed is to go kvill often be found to. dry out, the drill being only able to put the seed deep enough for it to germinate, but not to come on. By drilling on the hard ground and ploughing the seed under three or four,, inches, the soil in which the seed is lying is not directly exposed to the sun, consequently it gets a good chance. The peas take a little longer to break through, but the 'take' is sure." It was stated that there were no strag gling rows amongst peas that had been ploughed in as above indicated.

WHY BLOSSOMED FRUIT FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

WHY BLOSSOMED FRUIT FALLS. When fruit trees blossom well but do not set their fruit, either the climate, dis ease, or pollination is apt to be the prin cipal reason for failure, as explained by Professor C. I. Lewis, horticulturist of the Oregon station. These conditions* are likely to occur at any time, for which rea son growers should be on their guard to lessen the ill-effects. Heavy rains at blos soming time mean, of course, that bees are not flying and that pollination will not lake place. Or a heavy frost may occur at about the time the fruit is in blossom, and this often causes lack of setting of fruit. Such diseases as scab of pear or apple and brown rot of prune and cherry will sometimes destroy the entire crop. Insect pests also sometimes are destruc tive. Lack of pollination may occur, how ever, with none of these unfavorable con ditions present. Many of our trees are self-sterile and require the presence of other varieties near them if pollination is to be secured.-From ...

COLLAR ROT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1915

COLLAR ROT. "Collar rot" is said to be in evidence among young citrus trees at Mildura, and according to the "Cultivator," a well known grower there maintains that quick action will check the trouble. He states that the diseased portion should be goug ed out and an application of any good fungicide made. A pound of sulphate of iron to a gallon of water; a mixture of olive and carbolic oil, or even a 5 per cent, so lution of carbolic will do the trick. Stockholm tar on the wound is then re commended to keep the air out.
