School Clubs. CHAMPION TOMATO RAISER TELLS HER STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

School Clubs. CHAMPION TOMATO RAISER TELLS HER STORY. Miss Eloise Parsons, of Clarinda, Oewa, is the young woman whose record in the American Department of Agriculture's garden and canning clubs was the best of thousands made by members in the 33 northern States. Miss Parsons obtained a yield of 53181b. of tomatoes from her tenthacre plot. Her costs were about £3/10./, and her net profits over £23. Costs cover every item of expense in raising the crop, including rent of land, her own time (estimated at 5d. an hour a particularly reasonable figure, one would think), fertilisers and sprays. She de scribed some of her difficulties in ob taining this result in a recent issue of the " California Cultivator," and they may be useful to Leeton School Club members engaged in similar work. Older scholars in the hard school of experience may also find much of interest in the story. "I decided," she said, "I would try and have . ripe tomatoes very early, and so obtain good prices for them. So i...

Making Good. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

Making Good. 1 . " - j The number of city men who make in quiries with a view to the placing of their $ons on irrigation blocks is an ever-in qreasing one. Already many young fel lows of this stamp have taken up farms on the Irrigation Areas, and they are amongst the'blockholders likely to make ^ big success of their undertakings; This is not-to be wondered at, as, in addition to the necessary financial backing, lads of this class are generally full of youthful enthusiasm and initiative. ! The following extracts from a letter - received by a satisfied father from a son who is being financed on the Mirrool Area make very interesting reading. This lad is just 21 years of age, and has taken up ai block some distance away from the centre of the1 Mirrool settlement. His previous experience in farming is limited to a few months on a mixed farm in the Central West, and his lack of experience is not his only disability; but the way he is grappling with his difficulties and over coming them ...

MANAGEMENT OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

MANAGEMENT OF PIGS. There is a lot of sound sense in the fol lowing, which comes from South Australia, being portion of a, paper read by Mr. S. Johnston to a gathering of agriculturists in that State: "If swine were given their proper place in Australia they would be found as pro fitable as in older countries. The first thing for us to decide is the breed most suitable for our climate, and most profit able to keep. I find the White York shires and Berkshires the best all-round pigs for the farm, and of the two I pre fer the Berkshire; for lean meat and shapely hams they cannot be excelled. They are also quick growers. A Berk shire at 8 or 9 months will often turn the scale at 1501b. To be successful only the best animals should be allowed to breed. The fecundity of swine leaves no excuse for breeding mongrels that have to be hunted down with a rifle and dogs when wanted. A well-bred boar is suffi cient for six or eight sows. There is no class of farm stock with which the well bred o...

THIS SEASON'S TOMATOES. Canning Factory Arrangements. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

THIS SEASON'S TOMATOES. Canning Factory Arrangements. As no doubt a considerable number of settlers both on the Yanco and Mirrool Areas at the present time are contemplat ing cultivating tomatoes to a greater or lesser extent, the following information in regard to the conditions which will be en forced in connection with the delivery of such tomatoes to the canning factory will no doubt be of general use. 1. It has been decided to pay two dis tinct prices for first and second-class to matoes, but although the difference be tween the prices will be considerable, the matter has not yet been definitely settled. Information in this regard will be pub lished as early as possible. 2. For obvious reasons, however, toma toes should be delivered at the factory as soon as possible after picking, as they de teriorate very rapidly, and it will be im possible to pay first-class prices for an article that is not absolutely in first-class condition. 3. Arrangements will be made to receive tomatoe...

MIRROOL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

MIRROOL NOTES. The Australia Day Fund.-A committee meeting of the Griffith Patriotic League was recently held, and the very satisfac tory balance sheet presented hereunder was submitted. The total amount (which it is hoped will be further augmented by the end of the month) is then to be for warded to Sydney. It was decided to ask the members of the ladies' commit tee that had such a big influence on the success of the recent collection to allow themselves to be nominated to the Patrio tic League, which will continue the work of collecting funds in aid of the Red Cross movement. Patriotic Concert.-The Australia Day Fund was considerably added to by a very successful concert held on Saturday, the 21st ultimo.

BROOM MILLET. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

BROOM MILLET. The attention of settlers looking for a pot-boiler is drawn to the possibilities of broom millet as a crop in this connection. An article will be published in the next issue giving information in connection with its culture. Meantime, it may be stated that Mr. Alexander considers it could be made a really good pot-boiler, but, like everything else, requires atten tion and labor if the best results are to be achieved. Settlers intending to plant broom millet are strongly advised to lose no time in getting the ground ready for its recep tion. The greatest care should be taken to destroy weeds as their presence in the early stages of the crop's growth greatly interferes with the cultivation of the young plants. Deep ploughing is recom mended, but clay should not be brought to the surface. The ploughing operations should be carried out a couple of mofiths before sowing time so as to allow the land to sweeten. Sowing should not take place until all danger of frost is over a...

WENTWORTH ORCHARD NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

WENTWORTH ORCHARD NOTES. Mr. Sage, who is perhaps one of the best-known and most successful irriga tionists in the State, has been having an interesting chat with "Steele Bladye,"and the following brief precis of some recent notes by that writer will no doubt prove of general interest: Mr. Sage has great faith in the future of the navel orange, and does not think that the ordinary orange is ever likely to triumph over it as a seller. He declared that such box flats as those at Curlwaa could produce a navel as easily as other districts could-a common orange, and what is true of the Wentworth Irrigation Area should be equally true of orange country on the Murrumbidgee scheme. He is of opinion, however, that oranges will have to be properly packed to carry. He considers that young trees tearing rough-skinned fruit will be found to bear thinner skin fruit as the crop becomes greater. An interesting development in regard to the growth of the Washington Navels has been noted in Mr. Sage's...

Tympanitis in Cows. (Commonly called " Bloat" or "Hoven.") [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

Tympanitis in'Cows. (Commonly called " Bloat" or "Hoven.") BY H. R. ALEXANDER. A settler recently called 011 me in dis tress over trouble he was experiencing through his cattle persistently "b'owing" on lucerne. This man had given his cattle every care, and his other paddocks being absolutely devoid of feed, the only fodder they could get was that growing-on. his irrigated lucerne paddocks. He found pome of his stock suffering from hoven when only p'aced on the lucerne for ? matter of ten minutes, and he reduced the feeding time of his stock on lucerne to such a -.limited space of time that the cattle really were always in a state of hunger, and the moment they were turned on to the lucerne they were so keen that, they ravenously gorged themselves on the fodder, the resu't being bloat. It was pointed out to this man ithat if the cattle were once properly filled up and their hunger satisfied they would eat less ravenously, and would not then b^ so likely to b'oat.

Some Farm Philosophy [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

Some Farm Philosophy A farmer's life is one incessant fight. In order to raise his crops he pits himself against the weather and seasons; he forces the soil to his wishes; he wars a'gaint the plant world, the animal world, the insect world, the bacterial world. Is not that a fight, looked at philosophically, to make one stand aghast? . # -fl it is far easier, I believe, to acquire a degree of doctor of philosophy than it is to secure the inform ation that will equip a man to be a high-grade far mer * * Over and above the literature of agriculture, there remains another vast body of knowledge to con sider. I refer to the folk-lore of farming, or know ledge ha'nded down through farm operations. I never talk five minutes with another farmer, never confer briefly with the hands, without picking up some valuable bit of knowledge which no printed page is likely to contain. # .* * * And saddest of all, there is probably no position in life wherein the unprogressive man can shift along and ...

Instructional Notes. THE SWEET POTATO AS A PIG FEED. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1915

Instructional Notes. THE SWEET POTATO AS A PIG FEED. By H. R. Alexander. As a pig food the sweet potato has few equals. In fact, in countries and dis tricts where this tuber is grown exten sively it is used for the feeding of dairy cattle, and even horses. Once cows be come acquainted with the flavor of the sweet potato they seem to prefer it to al most any other food. The vine is also relished by all classes of farm live stock. On the Northern Rivers the sweet po tato is the main pig food crop grown, and with sugar-cane, skim mijk, and some maize to top off, it constitutes the full pig rearing and fattening ration al lowed by North Coast dairy farmers. The plant is one that will not stand rrost, and it grows best in a humid warm climate such as that experienced on the coast north of the. Clarence River, but it can be grown almost anywhere in New South Wales if reasonable care is taken to guard against injury by frost. In addition to growing an immense amount of green trailing vines...

Inter-Cropping Orchards [Although written for American readers, the following article can be applied with out serious alterations to local conditions. In regard to the question of marketing inter-crops, the canning factory as an out let for produce should be kept in mind. The last sentence sums up the whole posi-j tion as neatly as it can be done.-Ed.] As I see orchard inter-cropping, I see a solution for one of the most serious phases of the industry, and that is a method whereby the cost of production and orchard management might be re duced to a minimum. There is absolutely no reason why the orchard itself should not be made to pay most, if not all, of the operating expenses, taxes, and annual water dues, by some means of inter-crop page. In the case of the bearing orchard, inter-crops should be made to so reduce the operating expenses that the fruit sold as extra fancy grade should always mean net profit, and never have to be used to pay necessary expenses.
