Strawberries. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

Strawberries, The question of whether strawberry cul ture in a commercial way will ever be an outstanding success on, the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas is a matter which can only be solved by actual results. Some fine strawberries have already been pro duced, and numerous small garden plots for home use are to be seen on the blocks of both large and small holders. This shows interest in the matter. The es tablishment of the canning factory will undoubtedly have an important bearing on the progress .of the strawberry growing industry, and as the pioneering efforts of settlers with this fruit have proved that it does well under favorable condi tions, no doubt manj'- settlers will be turning: their attention to strawberry cul ture this season. In the circumstances, therefore, an official bulletin on the sub ject/which comes from Wisconsin, is of considerable interest, as strawberry cul ture in Wisconsin is being conducted un der very similar conditions to those which obtain on the Murr...

WORTHLESS WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

WORTHLESS WEEDS. (1.) Weeds work under no awa'rd ; they put in 24 hours each day drawing from the soil water that ca'n ill be spared. (2.) Their chief purpose in life is to rob the soil of plant food, light, air, and warmth. (3.) Every weed is an alien enemy, and very often it is allied to insect and fungoid pests, whose offensive never ceases. (4.) Weeds make the work harder; they hinder cul tivation, and cause excessive -wear and tear of stock, implements, energies/and temper.' (5 V) In addition to the toll they levy on the soil and the w'ater, they are responsible for a waste of manure, extra cost of harvesting, and loss entailed by harvesting a'n impure crop, for all of which the farmer has to pay. 5 j; ... . & * I } l > . i . ? 5 i (6.) Kill them before they have time to propagate themselves and get them under the ground. The most useless weed may make a little humus after it has been some time dead.

Type Pig Styes. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

Type Pig Sty es. BY H. R ALEXANDER. (Continued from last issue.) Plan No. 2 illustrates a different style of pig shed to that described last issue, but the size of the styes is again givreri as 8x8. Three pig pens with small ytard attached to each ai?e shown in this sketch, also two pens for brood sows with one yard, 16 x 8, attached for the use of the two pens conjointly. By having a move able partition in this yard it can be con verted into 'a single or double yard as de sired. It is frequently found an advan tage in handling pigs, especially. as the young pigs begin to grow and seek some food other than mother's milk, to have a stye set apart into which the young pigs only can have access. This allows the youngsters to be fed by themselves. One of the two pens shown is leading into this large yard could be used for this pur pose by having the door cut away at the bottom to al ow the youngsters only to get in to the trough and the grown pig or mother being kept outside. The sow of...

Penetration of Water. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

Penetration of Water. Some few months back a series of articles dealing with certain aspects of irrigation" - work was published in these, columns. Since that date a writer in the "Mildura Cultivator" has dealt with a phase of the matter which was not alto gether covered by the articles in question. The information he gives thoroughly bears out the theories set out in the earlier articles. No apology is made for publishing much of what appeared in the, "Cultivator."1 It would appear that other irrigation settlements ane watching the work of the United States Department of Agriculture just as closely as our own Commission. The bulletins issued by the -American authorities contain the very latest scientific information on the many problems associated with irrigated agricul ture, and as their work lies largely in,arid or semi-arid districts, their problems are in many ways very similar to our own, and their deductions will be found in most cases to fit in pretty closely with our own ex...

Sweet Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

Sweet Potatoes. BY H. H0G8IN. Sweet potatoes should be cultivated much more extensively than they have been on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas. The" climate and soil conditions on many farms are eminently suited for this vegetable, and while its culture pre sents no difficulties, the returns are bound to be remunerative-if only through feed for pigs. Preparation of the Land.-In preparing the soil for this crop it should be plough ed as deeply as possible. Some of the stiffer classes of soil would well pay for trenching. If the surface soil is shallow, I am of opinion that the subsoil must be brought to the surface, the sun and air alone being able to thoroughly sweeten and pulverise it. Subsoiling on this par ticular class of soil, in my mind, is simp1y a waste of time and money as far as sweet potato culture is concerned. A cheap and satisfactory method of trenching, or is it really " bastard trenching," is to clear a trench 1ft. wide and lift, deep and cart the soil to the end o...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (J. T. D.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (J. T. i>.) The spring flowering ahnuals should now be commencing to bloom. It is essential that the beds or borders of these should be well cultivated and kept free from weeds. A light top-dressing of well-rotted stable manure would be beneficial to the plants at this stage. If the first two or three flower-shoots of snapdragon, lupin, linaria, phlox, See., be pinched out in the early bud stage, the plants will stool out and give better flow ering results. With stocks, larkspurs, wallflowers, candytuft, however, the cen tral head of bloom is generally the finest, and should be retained. Now is the time to think of a succession of annuals, for with judicious selection and successive sowings a supply may be maintained right through till next winter. Sow at once in seed-boxes*: Miniature sunflower, Zinnia Elegans, Portulacca, Gomphrena Celosia Thompsoni, Phlox Drummondii, Salvia Spliendensi, nastur tium ("Tom Thumb"), summer chrysan themum . , All of the above wi...

TREATMENT OF FRUIT TREES AFTER TAKING DELIVERY FROM THE NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

TREATMENT OF FRUIT TREES AFTER TAKING DELIVERY FROM THE NURSERY. The attention of settlers obtaining trees from the Leeton Nursery is specially drawn to the following points that are of very great importance. 1. AIL 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 inchcs across. 4. The bundles should be suitably and legibly labelled, and a stake ov board placed between the varieties in the trenches to prevent any chance of their becoming mixed. 5. A suitable plan shou.d be made of the orchard when planting. W...

Methods of Grading Land. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

By W. :J.; .Qupdlmg (Officer in^Cljarge of Grailiiiig ahd Fam ^ ; p On the second quality land on the Mu>r rumbidgee Ar/eas, as is w-ell known, there5? is often to be found a stiff subsoil with only a few inches of surface soil; and for surface irrigation the method of grading generally fo lowed is that of flooding be tween check banks with the land made level transversely; and having a continu ous fall to ensure excess of water being readily drawn off. Frequently the land to be graded is al most level (land here it may be .-(remark ed that land can be flat and yet not level; or it may be crabholjey and yet, consider ed as a whole, level),. and,. since one ,of the objects in grading is that excels' water may be drained off, in , order to achieve this end, it is often necessary to- shift earth from the lower to the higher end of thfe bays or sections into which the fie'd is. divided by the check banks, for the .purpose of facilitating the1 application and control of water.

HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 August 1915

HUMUS. An interesting bulletin was recently is sued by the Berkeley (California) Agri cultural Experiment Station on the sub ject of humus in Californian soils. The particular application of the deductions to Californian conditions is of little in terest to irrigators in New South Wales, but some information from the general portion of the pamphlet should be of value. - Nature of Humus-In the first place it is pointed out that the term "humus" should not be applied to all vegetable matter in the soil in all stages of decay, as many seem to think, but only to a peculiar product of partial decay of vege table and animal matter brought about under conditions of moisture, warmth, a limited amount of air, and in the presence of lime. Until humification of the leaves., roots, and other plant debris takes place the beneficial effects of humus itself are not obtained, and the material, while loos ening the soil (sometimes injuriously), is practically inert as far as enriching the soil witH ...
