Facts for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

Facts for Farmers. THE ammonia in the fumes of a stable causes le&thi to crack and rot. AN Engb'sh company employs 1,500 Chinese labour« growing «ranges, pineapples, and bananas, at the Sooiet Islands. USED to absorb liquids of a stable, and well rotted saw-dust and tan bark become valuable for manure. THE Californians say that they need three improve meats to make their farming what it should ba-s trei pass law, an irrigation system, and tree planting. A LITTLE pile of wood ashes at the root of fruit trees, touching the bark all around, will generally disgust vermin. Blacksmith's cinders are useful in orchard!, because trees require some iron. THE importance of raising their own broom oom or millet is much overlooked. Besido the broom, tn* grain yields per acre about as much as wheat. Breon corn is now worth 200 dollars a ton at San Fran cisco. ?WITHOUT machines, there is most profit in small farms, but with all the approved machines large farm« will pay best to the acre. W...

Till a Small Surface Well. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

Till a Small Surface Well. A prevalent mistake among farmers is to wait nnffl their feed begins to "run out" before they attempt to grow anything to replace it. If a farmer has too little manure he had better cart what he has on "Mi best field and take a big crop from that than to pat it on his poorest field to enable it to yield a moderate ¡ crop. It is easier to increase a corn crop from íO bushels per acre to 80 on good land than to increa» it from 15 bushels to 25 on poor land. In the first case your manure gives you a gain of 30 bushels per acre, and the Becond a gain of only 10 bushels. This explains why a farmer with poor land finds it ¡o difficult to make progress, and especially if his fara be undrained. Neither the manure nor the labour ho applies is nearly so effective as that of hil neighbour with richer and better land. In this ca» it is emphatically true that the destruction of the poor is their poverty. Hence we may incidentally remark that thorough and perfect manuri...

A Convenient, Cheap, Durable, and Portable Fence. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 2 April 1870

A Convenient, Cheap, Durable, and Portable Pence. UNDER many circumstances connected with, pastoral ] and agricultural pursuits, and more particularly in commencing the clearing of a new farm, it is of tho . utmost importance to provide for temporary fences, so . that as tho work progresses tho enclosed area may be ] enlarged, or the fences shifted to suit convenience, or the necessities of the case. The materials of a fence ' that would be applicable to tho wants of tho grazier or cultivator under any circumstances which may arise, ' should be easily portable and capable of hoing rapidly ' erected by unskilled persons ; and in case of a new clearing whore a family has settled down, and where . poultry and small animals have to bo guarded from : straying as well as from native dogs, &c, or kangaroos and wallabies kept from a garden plot, orfrom young corn, tho fence should bo close. It appears to us that a fence combining tho requisites wo have indicated is shown in tho anne...
