EARLY CROPS OF POTATOES Work To Be Pot In Hand [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
EARiY CROPS OF Work To Be Put |d Hand 'Potato growers contem plating planting ah early spring crop should make ar rangements immediately for their seed' advises Mr. A.. C. Orman, 'Vegetable. Spec ialist of the Department of Agriculture. 'The seed should.be obtain ed, where possible, from table land districts, as seed grown under those conditions is well matured and will emerge quick ly after planting. ? 'The selection of seed is most important, as under no circum stances can the quality be judg ed from appearances. 'Virus diseases, such as leaf roll and mosaic, which are seed borne, have the effect of reduc ing the yield in the resulting crop. 'Growers should make every endeavour to obtain .certified seed because it is the progeny of crops which are reasonably free from virus diseases. GREEN SPROUTING 'Once obtained, the seed should be spread out in diffused light to promote green sprout ing — the development of thick, sturdy sprouts. 'Green sprouting results in quick emergence, whi...
EVERYONE PAY THE RATES [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
EVERYONE PAY THE RATES The Moruya 'Examiner' has come forward with the novel suggestion that every _ one' who votes at the Lobal ' Government elections should help pay the rates. The ruie was, until only recent ly, that only those who paid rates should vote, and then it was decided that, since landlords, really acted as agents in rate paying, rind collected the rates as part, of the rent from the tenant that all should vote. Now ' the argument is that rent fixing has done away; with a profit on the rent by landlords, so there fore all who vote should share the responsibility of the rates. It looks like a rather back to front way of getting over the rent fixing, and it is doubtful whether it will ever succeed, anyway, because there is no doubt that rent payers outnumber ratepay ers and probably always will.
THE HOUSEHOLD FOWLYARD Points For Domestic Poultry-Keepers [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
THE HOUSEHOLD FOWLYASD Points For Domestic . Poultry-Keepers Twenty fowls will pro duce about 6 cwt. of fowl manure per year for the vegetable patch — a point which the intending back yard poultry-keeper should remember. In addition, where fowls are kept on the semi-intensive or intensive system, a quantity of straw (scattering litter) will be available for top-dressing or in corporation in the soil — as this Jitter is marked with droppings it is a valuable source of humus and fertilising material. , On . the other hand, the waste outer leaves of cabbages, lettuce, cauliflowers, etc., and the top growth of many root crops, will supply much green feed for fowls. But don't give rhubarb leaves to fowls: thev're poisonous. So are some household scraps, which Mr. V. H. Brann, Princi pal Livestock Officer (Poultry), Department of Agriculture, lists as follows: ? Corned or trickled meats, and the liquid from them. ? Foods with an excessive amount of salt. pj Meat which has gone bad —fowls ...
