ORCHARDING IN TASMANIA. A Visitors View. An Ideal and Profitable Occupation. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
. ORCH ARDIN Gt in TASMANIA. A Visitors View. An Ideal and Profitable ^ Occupation. ' One of the industries that have_ most changed the aspect of Australia in the more settled areas is orcharding.' _ Tliuo writes Mr Archibald Marshall in the London ' Daily , Mail.' Continuing he savs : — After an absence of over twenty years it was the first thing that struck me on the railway journey between I Adelaide and Sydney. It was in the early spring, in the middle of September, which corresponds to March. You wont, through the monotonous bush for mile after mile, the grass green at that season of the year, but the trees looking to the inexperienced eye all the same, a dull, uniform shade, which one grows very tired of. unless it is lightened up by something fresher. And then you would come upon an orchard — a great stretch of pink or white blossom, or a little patch of it beside a homestead, and your eye was. refreshed and gladdened. ' I have seen orchardists all over Aus tralia. In Queensl...
Correspondence. COMPULSORY SPRAYING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
Qorresppndenee. COMPULSORY SPRAYING. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — I notice in your report of last meeting of the Huon Coun cil the question of compulsory snraviner was discussed. I-notice also that the councillors wisely decided to defer further con sideration till their next meeting. This is a very important ques tion, and should be dealt with with very great caution. Have the. Council sufficient data to warrant ? them taking, such a drastic step ? I understand some experiments have been, carried out by. the Council in a small orchard at Franklin, and evi dently the result is considered satisfactory by some of the coun cillors. I consider the report 01 such experiments should be made public, assuming that a report has been submitted, because quite a number of orchardists have not tried arsenate of lead as a spray; and naturally ask for convincing proof of its efficacy before being compelled to use ^ it, even though under the direction of an officer appointed by the Council. It would be in...
