WHY BLOSSOMED FRUIT FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

WHY BLOSSOMED FRUIT FALLS. Mr. W. J. Adams, Fruit Expert to the Commission, is not in agreement with Professor Lewis, of Oregon, in regard to this question. He writes: "I think the explanation given under this heading in the 'Irrigation Record' of July 15, -by Professor C. I. Lewis, Horti culturist, of the Oregon Station, is more of reflection on the "bee than an explana tion of the trouble. From my observa tion, I have found that heavy rain or the application of irrigation water at the blossoming period causes a vigorous flow of sap which floods the buds and prevents them from setting. Pears and prunes may be affected by the bees not getting out to work if the rain was continuous, but as the blossoming period ranges from ten to twenty da}rs, the bees would at least get in half time in this district at that season of the year, and as bees are not concerned about the bad roads, they may get to work as soon as the rain had passed over. However, it would be as well for settlers to reme...

CARRYING LIVE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 August 1915

CARRYING LIVE STOCK. In comparing the value of fertiliser con stituents in an article under this head ing by Mr. H .R. Alexander in last issue, several inaccuracies occurred in the con version of American figures to British equivalents. This portion of the article should read: "The fertilising value of common grains as compared with that of the products of the dairy farm figured at prices of com mercial fertiliser, shows the less decrease in fertility by dairying. 1 ton of butter contains 2/1 worth of fertiliser constituents. 1 ton of wheat contains £1/12/2 worth ditto. 1 ton of oats contains £1/10/2 worth, ditto. 1 ton or com contains £1/8/ worth ditto. .1. ton of clover hay contains £1/17/6 worth ditto. 1 ton of lucerne hay contains £1/19/7 worth ditto. When we compare a ton of lucerne hay (and remember that even in drought periods it is only worth £7/10/ per ton) with a ton of butter that runs more in the neighbourhood of £120 in value, it will be seen that the. values of the fer...

SOME DIFFERENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

SOME DIFFERENCES. " Here and there amongst our dairymen are such splendid results attained that one can only be astonished at the com placency with which the other so-called dairymen continue to be content with the pitifully small average yields of milk per cow. Why do the huge differences exist? "'Just a few miles from here is one of those poor herds, six cows with an aver age of only 33381b. of milk! the highest yield only 40001b. "In contrast to that, two good herds in Western Ontario indicate the possibilities for the man whose eyes are open to what milk records have to teach. One herd of twelve grades average 10,6571b. of milk and 3171b. of fat; the second herd of 22 grades averaged 10,5421b. of milk and 3101b. of fat. " These marvellous differences in herd yields drive home hard facts". Men differ in their methods of feeding and handling sows, feeds differ in value, cows differ considerably in their inherent capacity as milk producers, they are not all cast in the same mould. ...

PALATABILITY OF GRASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

PALATABILITY OF GRASSES. It is reported by the Department of Agriculture that some interesting (experi ments were recently carried out at the Hawkesbuiry Agricultural College as to the palatability of various grasses. Ex periments were tried with the following: -Paspalum, Rhodes grass, Hungarian Bromie, Texas Blue, Perennial Rye (in head), Prairie (just coming into head), and Weeping Love grass ("Etragrostis cur vula variety valida") ; also the following native grasses:-Paddock Love grass and Rare Blue grass. The result proved that, while young and succulent, Prairie, Paspalum and Hun garian Brome were easily the most palat able of these grasses, but in the "seeding stage the cattle expressed a decided pre ference for Paspalum and Hungarian Brome. It is worthy of note that Rhodes grass in both trials was " only eaten on compulsion. The native grasses too were regarded with grekt disfavor. .It is pointed out that several factors, such as the chemical and physical texture of the soils...

For a young struggling settlement, such a result is splendid, : and the committee deserves eviery credit. Leeton has also done very well. At the time of writing bxact details of the total sum collected are not available, but the amount runs to some hundreds of pounds, the efforts of one sectional com mittee, working on the Yanco end of the Areas, have, it is understood, resulted in the gathering together of upwards of £100.

Making Fruit-Growing Pay. PROBLEMS OF PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

Making Fruit-Growing Pay. PROBLEMS OF PRODUCTION. There are several articles in the May issue of that fine Oregon magazine, "Bet ter Fruit," that deal with the problem of production and marketing. They are all worth quoting in extenso, because they apply , as well to our own as to American conditions. Limitations of space, how ever prevent this, but the following sum mary, which includes information taken from several articles, will be found to contain a great deal of sound advice. 1. The Economic Size of the Orchard for each Glass of Fruit.-Generally the one team unit or combination of one team units will be the most successful. In very small acreages fruits of most varieties overhead charges have a tendency to be come almost prohibitive. 2. The Laying-out o! the Orchard. Much has already been written on this subject, and there is no necessity to dwell on it here. It cannot, however, be over looked in dealing with orchardists' prob lems. See that the blocks are not too large; that ...

THE PURCHASE OF DAIRY STOCK AND PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

THE PURCHASE OF DAIRY STOCK AND PIGS. For the information of settlers desirous of increasing their dairy herds, or those about to commence dairying operations, it is pointed out that owing to the high price of dairy stock, it is not intended to purchase any large number of cattle to be held for prospective sale to settlers. The Acting Commissioner is, however, making arrangements to purchase on set tlers' behalf any springers they require for their immediate use, and in the cir cumstances, settlers are requested to book any stock required at the Agricultural Offices, Leeton and Mirrool, without de lay, in order to allow as much time as possible for the selection of cattle. The more time the Commission's officers are given in this regard, the better will be the opportunity foir securing good ser viceable stock at minimum prices. Not only lane cattle prices high on the coast and elsewhere, hut the same thing applies, although perhaps to a lesser de gree, to pigs, and settlers who cont...

GRIFFITH RAILWAY. In reply to representations made by the Acting Commissioner to the railway con struction authorities in regard to the car riage of goods for the tradespeople of Griffith to Beelbangera Siding, a letter has been received intimating that the Department of Public Works can now take goods traffic to the new siding. As the letter speaks in general terms, it can be taken that there is no objection to set tlers having their own stuff consigned through to Beelbangera, if they so desire, in preference to Wilbriggie.

THE WASHINGTON NAVEL ORANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

THE WASHINGTON NAVEL ORANGE. By Fred. C. Govers (Assistant Director Immigration and Tourist Bureau). Whilst at Riverside in Southern Cali fornia recently I seized the opportunity of gaining some information regarding the development of the navel orange industry. It is coinmonly known that the whole of the navel orange trees in California origin ated from two trees which were brought from Washington in 1873. It is, how ever, not so generally known that these same trees are the parents of the Washing ton Navels which are now thriving in Aus tralia, South Africa, and Japan. California owes a debt of gratitude to a woman for the introduction of these two trees. It was Mrs. L. C. Tibbetts, of Riverside, who wrote to Washington and asked for some of the orange trees .which had 'been raised from buds received from Bahia in Brazil. Two of the trees were sent to Mrs. Tibbetts, while the balance of the stock, with one exception, went to Florida. The tree which was retained at Washington is is...

CRAB-HOLEY LAND. Its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

CRAB-HOLEY LAND. Its Origin. It will be remembered that in a recent issue, Mr. D. Ryan, of Farm 405, Yanco, drew attention to the formation of crab holey land on Gogeldrie after the top soil had been blown away by a severe wind storm. "After about a month's sun," he said, "the exposed subsoil began to rise like dough in an oven, and then formed into ordinary hillocks." Mr. Ryan has now supplied additional information in regard to the matter: 1. The depth of soil removed by the wind-storms where the puffs formed was, he believes, about four inches. 2. He noticed new puffs formed in many places. 3. There were a number of small white stones like limestone, noticeable on the puffs, and ordinary yellow clay common underneath the reddish layer of subsoil was also noticed, mixed up in the puffy material. 4. No rain fell from the time the* sub soil wais exposed until the puffs formed. Mr. Ryan found a largie puff nearly 1-8 of an acre in extent, and there were a number of very light stones,...
