Melons. CULTURAL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

Melons. CULTURAL METHODS. "Evfcry cloud has a silver lining"; every trial has some compensation-but in many cases it is hard to find. There are few, however, who will not admit thiat the fact that summer brings to the Areas a plentiful supply of the finest melons, pos sible to imagine, is in some measure a compensation for flies, dust, and other dis comforts. A man is likely to forget the heat of the day as he sits sampling the latest variety of cantaloupe in the cool of the evening. "California has long been regarded as the home of the melon," says the writer of a recent article in the "Californian Cul tivator," and he argues that this is due largely to the hot summers and the favor able soil and moisture conditions. In 1909 California led all the States in the production of musk-melons, there being that season about 5784 acres. The yearly production of water-melons in California probably amounts to several thousand acres, and, in fact, the industry is so large that it is considere...

Lucerne. SOME GENERAL NOTES. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

Lucerne. SOME GENERAL NOTES. By H. R. Alexander. (Continued from last issue.) When and How to Sow.-The autumn months from March to May are considered to be the most satisfactory months during which to sow lucerne, but 'eyen the autumn sowing is not always a success. Everything really depends on the weather following the sowing. If, for example, seed is sown in the month of March-and before sowing the seed the settler should see to it that the land has received a thorough irrigation-and it is found that the weather remains dry and is continuing dry throughout the winter, there may be some risk of the lucerne not showing to much advantage till the spring months, and while a crop hangs fire, as it were, there is always a risk of (a considerable proportion of the seed germinating and dying out. This experience was noted during the autumn and wititer of 1914: On the average, in this district, by-refer ence to our rainfall records, reasonably rains are a1most assured ijoi* winter. Hence i...

HORSE SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

HORSE SENSE. Don't cut the mane of a work horse. The long hairs are a protection to the top of the neck. If the mane is cut the collar presses , on the stubby hairs and causes irritation and sores. * * * * Keep the collars clean. Keep the neck clean, and the long hairs of the mane well brushed and free from tangles. When putting on the collar, part the mane care fully. The collar should fit so perfectly that there is little wear or friction on the top of the neck. Each horse should wear his own collar, fitted by a person with common sense. The horse with a sloping shoulder cannot work with any ease or profit in a collar made for an up right shoulder. jfc- sjc ijj ^ The foal that is kept fat from its babyhood will make an easy-keeping horse. . It should be taught to eat grain with its dam as early as possible. The grain should be fed to the foal all along. Foals fed in this way make better horses with more bottdm, and their value is proportionately in creased. ' £ . * - * * * If poss...

Fruit and Vegetables. POINTS FROM REGENT VICTORIAN INQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

Fruit and Vegetables. POINTS FROM REGENT VICTORIAN INQUIRY. A Royal Commission was recently ap pointed to inquire into, report upon, and make recommendations regarding the pro duction, packing, marketing, distribution, wholesale and retail prices of fruit and vegetables, etc. The following are ex cerpts made from published evidence given before the Commission at Mildura. -A* -A" The total number of growers of dried fruits on irrigation settlements in N.S.W. and Victoria is as follows: Mildura ; 425 Merbein .. .... .. .. 184 Curlwaa .. .. 60 Nyah .. 45 Possibly eight or ten of these are non members of the Australian Dried Fruits Association. Before the association was formed, Mildura Growers had to take lid. per lb. for their best raisins; after its for mation the price jumped at once i50 per cent.

RHODES GRASS AS A DROUGHT RESISTANT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

RHODES GRASS AS A DROUGHT RESISTANT. Telling his experience to a "Register" reporter, one of the Mallee settlers said that in November last he sowed a 20 aicre paddock consisting of typical sandy country on his farm with Rhodes grass and sorghum saccharatum. Rains oc curred soon afterwards, and a capital ger mination resulted. The sorghum grew to a height of about 2 feet, and the Rhodes grass rapidly spread. The feed thus pro vided has been a magnificent standby through the exceedingly dry summer, and in conjunction with other paddocks, on which, however, there has been very little picking, has carried a large num ber of stock, the great majority of which are now in fat condition. Although the rain has been under 2.00 for the last four months, there is still some of the sorghum in evidence, and a lot of the Rhodes grass is green and vigorous. The latter has proved to be a splendid sandbinder and preventer of drift.

WHAT PERSEVERANCE DID. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

WHAT PERSEVERANCE DID. That patience is a virtue in the de velopment of a good milking strain is in stanced by the case of Mr. J. J. Dunne, who tells in a recent issue of Hoard's "Dairvman" how he bred a good milking strain of cattle which, from the photo graphs published, appear to be of the Holstein-Friesian type. The work was started in 1873 with a herd of cows, of which the average yield was about 3700 lbs. per head; the heifers only giving 22001bs. Twelve years' work only result ed, in improving the average to 5300lbs. for cows and 31P01bs. for heifers. The experimentor was, however, encouraged bv the opinion of Professor Prosch, who said, "In breeding and developing a milk ing strain the situation often looks like a Drolonged, weary march to the goal, but the natural aptitudes of the animals for milk production are gathering strength all the while, and when they are fully de veloped, they suddenly assert them selves." By 1895 (22 years after the ex periments had been commenced...

HALVE THE WATER AND DOUBLE THE YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

HALVE THE WATER AND DOUBLE THE 7IELD. With a view to scientifically determining the value of irrigation, the Oregon Agri cultural College has been carrying out ex haustive tests for the last seven years. Speaking of these tests, Professor W. L. Powers, who has compiled data from them, spates that "for most crops one irri gation has been better than two irriga tions." He goes further, however, and gives individual instances which have been the result of the keeping of careful wea ther and evaporation records, and the making of no less than 10,000 soil moisture determinations. "The most economical increase in yield of hay was secured by use of about four acre inches' irrigation in a wet season, and while the maximum yield has been ob tained from six acre inches in a wet sea son, and 12 acre inches in a dry season. The most economical returns with pota toes has been secured with two-acre inches in a wet sea,son, and with three or four acre inches in a dry season, while the maximum yiel...

TOMATO DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

TOMATO DISEASES. With the approach of the tomato sea- , son it is perhaps advisable to remind growers of the importance of keeping the plants vigorous and free from disease. The worst, and, in fact, the only pest that has shown itself to any extent on the Irri gation Areas is black rot or spot. The best preventive for this disease is Bor deaux mixture (6 lb. bluestone, 4 lb. lime to any lesser quantity in the same pro portions). Spray the plants well soon after planting out, and again when the first truss of fruit is set. Should any diseased fruits appear in spite of the spraying, they should at once be burnt, for it is impossible to over estimate the importance of taking every precaution to check this disease. There is much difference of opinion as to its cause, but to my mind it is due, or at any rate assisted greatly, by carelessly selected seed, as, for instance, seed saved from affected plants, or seed from plants that were self-sown from a previous crop. Plants such as these s...

Vegetable Growing. CALENDAR FOR AUGUST [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

CALENDAR FOR AUGUST Tomatoes.-Sowings should now De made to follow the Early Pea crop, jvhich should be picked and the haulm ploughed under by the beginning of * October. Matchless, Redstone, and Burwood Prize will be found the best varieties for this sowing. The planting distances and method should be as previously advised. Sweet Potatoes.-Tubers should be placed on a sharp hot bed, when the cut tings are 6 or 8 inches long they should be carefully pulled from the tubers and planted out 4ft. apart, and 5ft. between 1;he rows, the land previously being deep ly ploughed. Like all root crops, sweet potatoes do much better following a heavily manured crop. Big and little-stem Jersey and Pink are good varieties. The result from an ex periment plot of sweet potatoes grown at Petersham last season was 10 tons per acre. At one time during the season the. price quoted was upwards of £5 per ton. The value of this crop as a pig feed should also be kept in mind. It does best in a nice light so...
