AGRICULTURE IN FRANCE. Paris, April 1. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
AGRICULTURE IN FRANCE. . [From our own Correspondent.! Paris, April L There are two methods for preserving grain — in granaries, where the grain is turned over from time to time and exposed to currents of air ; and in trenches, either plain or lined with masonry. In oar climate the iatter plan is not possible, but there can ba no difficulty in constructing sheet-iron reservoirs, providing uniformity of tempera ture be secured. This is the plin recommended by JProfeesor Muntz as being superior to graneries. He has found by. .' - actual experiment that of two lots of like grain, placed in identical temperatures, one - ? /. in closed vases, the other in renewed air, the latter eliminated ten times more carbonic acid than the former. Now the production ' of this acid forms the test for estimating tbe deterioration of the grain, which takes . . place chiefly at the expense of the starch, and much less so of the protein matters— all most essential for germination as well' as for the purpo...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. There is nothing striking to report about the weather this week beyond the fact that eome of the days have been unusually warm for the season. This, however, after the late rains, has brought the feed on nicely, and the country generally is looking ra markably well, and the young grass spring ing rapidly. The early sown crops are aomg weu waere iney are aoove grouna, and as there is a good supply of moisture in the soil after the late rains, agricultural affairs eo far look promising. In Victoria nearly the whole of the country has had a bountiful supply of ram, and as extensive areas of land in the whsat-growing districts have been sown the crops will have a good start. New South Wales has not participated in the late rains to the extent that this colony and Victoria have, but its flocks and herds are reported to be in fair order, and no . serious cause for apprehension exists. Along the coast rains have fallen, but many of the inland districts have not been so ...

Ha Ecornsthe lialf-and-half name of reciprocity, and fjom. his place in the- House oi Ooai rcoEfi denounces free trade as 'the old three-leg cripple.' Though he was motion to prohibit the importation of live rueat ixito lCngland because of the pre valence of foot-and-aioutii disease, he was succeseful iii drawing some very important statements from Mr. Matthew Arnold and Mr. Mundella; and the portion of the speech of the Vice-President of the Council which referred to the cattle trade of Australia and its possible extension is of great interest to these colonies. The Cattle Diseases Act of 1873, by which animals coming from ports scheduled as infected were ordered to be slaughtered at the place of landing, haa admittedly beeu productive of good, and in the end oE 1879 the whole of Britain was comparatively free from cattle disease.

TBE FAR2IERS' ASSOCIATION. Meetings of various tranches of ,tlie Farmers' A££ociation liave been held in different parts of the country during the past weeli or two, at which matters of iai poitance to agriculturists and to the com munity generally have been discussed. In the Northern districts the branches are eminently political in their aims and views, the object they are striving after most earnestly being to obtain on behalf of 'Wapstraw from the Government and taa Legislature facilities for the acquisition of large holdings — of course on eaey terms. It is undoubtedly desirable that the farther we go from the seaboard tbe more liberal should be the terms offered to agricultural selectore, and the larger should be their blocks of land, in order that tliey may be aMe to combine grazing with tillage of the soil. It is not disputed that the father north settlement extends the more uncertain is the rainfall, to say nothing of it fceirig on the average of seasons decidedly lees abun...
