Soil Improvement. (Continued from last issue.) Green Manuring. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

Soil Improvement. BT H. J. BRAUND. (Continued from last issue.) Green Manuring. That practically all the soils on these Areas would be substantially improved by green-manuring from an irrigationist s 'Standpoint with regard especially to water penetration and moisture retention will hairdly be disputed. That the incorpora tion in the soil of a quantity, say 5 per cent, by weight of decayed organic or Vegetable matter, would produce not only this desirable effect, but also enrich 'the natural fertility of the soil, especially in regard to nitrogen, is also beyond doubt. Green-manuring, as the name implies, is the practice of growing crops upon the soil to be benefited, and the entire turn ing under the ground of such crops with a mouldboard plough. I mention "mould board ploughs' especially, as disc ploughs are not suitable for this work. The green; crop, whatever it may be, is allow ed to reach the flowering stage as it reaches its maximum fertilising value at this period, and is in...

Sugar Beet for Pig Feed. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

Sugar Beet for Pig Feed. "Can you suggest any crop, settlers are not producing, now that they "might with benefit go in for?" This was a question recently put to Mr. W. E. Shoobridge, of Bushy Park, Tasmania, a recent visitor to Leeton, the pioneer irrigator in the Derwent Valley, and a man of large and ripe experience in general irrigation prac- tice.     "Yes," was the reply; "sugar beet."   The answer was rather startling, as it so happened that an article on sugar beet growing for pig feeding purposes was al- ready in preparation, and it was the per- sonal opinion of Mr. Shoobridge that was wanted to complete the story. The term "expert" is one that applies thoroughly to Mr. Shoobridge, as he is not only deep- ly versed in the theoretical side of pig breeding, but has had as well a large and varied practical experience, which even includes the vanquishing of that dreaded scourge of the pig man-swine fever. (His method of dealing with the sc...

BERSEEM. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

BERSEEM. Berseem (Egyptian clover) does not seem to be giving the results that were expected of it in view of the very satis- factory report's published regarding its success at Roseworthy Agricultural College (South Australia). Last year Inspector McDiarmid planted several experimental grass plots at Yanco and Hay. Benseem was amongsit the grasses tried, and it was anything but an outstanding success. It has also given poor results at the Yanco Experiment   Farm. In both cases, however, it has been thought that possibly the soil was unsuit- able, being heavy and dense. At Waikerie (S.A.) it seems something very similar has occurred on sandy as well as clay soils, vide the following from a recent "Murray Pioneer" (Renmark). "Re your notes on the Berseem; several growers here have had similar experiences. I have not heard of a single success. I tried 20lb. of seed on a sandy soil and heavy flats with clayey subsoil, but in each instance, although sown towards the end of ...

Chicken Feeding. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

Chicken Feeding. The early feeding of baby egg-producers is a very important matter. Chickens, like other birds and beasts, require a good start in life if they are to give their own ers the best results. On the Irrigation Areas chickens will be bred for two pur poses-either for market or for egg pro duction, and they will require different feeding according to which aim the breed er has in view. Chicks intended for the market should be forced almost from the day hatched. If they are to be egg producers, early maturity is desirable, but the birds should not be stunted or over-developed. When first hatched the chick contains within itself the yolk of the egg, some what changed, it is true; but to all intents and purposes the statement made is correct. This yolk is attached to the intestines by a small cord and for the first forty-eight or sixty hours gives the youngster its necessary nourishment. The absorption of this naturally provided food should not be interfered with. If the chi...

SLUICE BOXES ON TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

SLUICE BOXES ON TERMS. Inquiries have been made by more than one settler recently as to whether terms are still allowed for the supply of sluice boxes, and in the circumstances it has been thought advisable to draw at tention to the fact that, under the scheme of assistance adopted by the iate Com missioner before his death, sluice boxes were omitted, although previously terms had been allowed for. Thg matter has again been raised by the Manager, and the Acting Commissioner has formally ap proved that sluice boxes be no longer supplied on terms.

Money in Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

Money A contributor to the "Melbourne Age" has something to say that is well worth passing on to the irrigationists of New South Wales. Much the same thing has already been said in these columns, but the "Money in Pigs" slogan cannot be heard too often now that the bacon fac tory is about to commence operations. Are settlers ready to keep it going full .time when it does make a Start? Here is the article, which is signed "Observer": "As pigs cdn be produced much faster than any othter domesticated animal, the raising of pork on irrigated lucerne offers the irrigation farmer exceptional oppor tunities of profit making. "Some competent authorities in this northern district have recently investi gated the American methods of pork rais ing. At the State University of Idaho, United States of America, and several of the experimental farms, elaborate experi ments in the production of pork from lu cerne in irrigated areas have been car ried out for years. It was proved that 600 lb. of pork ...

HOW TO LOSE MONEY IN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

HOW TO LOSE MONEY IN DAIRYING. By following these rules ahy dairy far mer can ensure the failure of his business, says Prof. G. W. Barnes, farm adviser oh live stock of the University of Arizona agricultural extension service:- . ?,.. .*. .. < . ? - ?' - c . 1. Use scrub bulls. ; Tljis ^vill run down any herd in quick time. / c . 2. Let the bull run witfi the cows. This will make their. milk yield fall off and their calves come when least desired. 3. Do not test the cow for milk pror duction or butter fat. In^this -way the poor, cows will lose enotugh money in a year to buy several goqfl ones. 4. Keep only the heavy* eating cows which produce little milk. 5. Raise only the heifers from non-pro ducing. cows. 6. Feed sour and rotten feeds. 7. Do not supply pure water, but make the cows drink out of, mudholes. 8. Furnish no shade dyring the summer months.. 0.. Have no shelter fqr the cows in cold and inclement weather. This will re duce the milk flow from 35 }to 50 per cent....

CATTLE PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

CATTLE PRICES. By H. R. Alexander. I woujd like to draw the special atten tion of settlers to the fact that the present is about as unfavorable a period as could be imagined for stopking up. The Com missioners terms for dairy cattle are: For first supply, £1 deposit and balance in 24 equal monthly instalments; for second supply, no deposit, 12 equal monthly in stalments. At the present time good dairy cows are bringing from £13 to £14 per head, and it does not require a compli cated calculation to arrive at the con clusion that, by obtaining stock on second supply terms at these prices a "settler would be called upon to pay more per month than he would obtain from the cows. As a pot-boiling proposition this certainly would not be successful. Investigations into the present position of the cattle market have led me to be lieve that good average dairy cattle ; can be secured after some trouble at prices not exceeding £10 per head to the settler, but time is necessary to find and secur...

TOMATO PULP. Some Essentials. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

TOMATO PULP. Some Essentials. In the manufacture of tomato pulp the very first requirement is good, sound, ripe tomatoes. The quality of the tomatoes to,, a large extent depends on the grower, arid with the special supply of plants provided this season to settlers, a a vast jifriprove ment may be expected over last year's supply. Tomatoes should be delivered, at the factory as soon as possible after being picked. Instances could be given where tomatoes have been picked one day and left over for the next day, until a full load was made up. It is most desirable that no. delay should occur after picking, before delivering to the cannery. The greatest problem that has to be confronted in the manufacture of tomato pulp sauces and catsup is getting the grower to send in prime tomatoes. To matoes bruised and crushed, which are exposed to the heat and dust upon the roads to the factory are oftimes & source of loss, and every care should be exer cised to prevent this. The tomato pulp...

MIRROOL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

MIRROOL. The Cheese Factory.-Arrangements aire being made to open the Mirrool > Cheese Factory on 1st November, but if possible the date of opening will be brought for ward. The plant has been. ordered, and the supplying firm has guaranteed to place it in position within three weeks. Action is also being taken at the present time to select the cheese maker, and he should be on the Areas within the course of a short time. Settlers will be well advised to re-read the article which appeared some time ago in. the '' Irrigation Record" on the condi tions which should obtain at Mirrool if a good sound cheese is to be produced at the factory. Further reference will be made to this matter in next issue. One thing ^hich must not be overlooked is the impossibility of having good sweet milk during the hot summer weather with out cooling appliances (as indicated in the article'referred to). Without good sweet milk no cheese maker will have any chance of producing a good sound, saleable chees...

TOMATO PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

TOMATO PRODUCTION. A great deal of discussion has > taken place among settlers at Mirrool as to the quantity of tomatoes likely to be treat ed at the factory during the coming sea son. The manager has definitely Advised the Instructional Officers in this regard, and also several settlers who have in quired that present arrangements are be ing made to treat 100 tons of tomatoes per month. It . is hardly necessary to point out that it will be a distinct ad vantage for the settlers to work together in this matter and arrange for systematic planting so as to enable the factory to be worked regularly and continuously with out being glutted from time to time dur ing the summer and autumn months. This matter has already been'referred to in former isues, but it is- felt that -too much stress cannot be laid upon it. No argument is necessary 4o show that if settlers produce 400 tons cof tomatoes in January and the output falls to 15 or 20 tons in April the factory would be unable to trealt...

HAY [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

HAY The Pumping Plant.-Provision is being made to duplicate the suction at the Hay Irrigation Area, and it is anticipated that this will increase delivery at the pump by about 33 1-3 per cent., as has been the case at Wentworth, where similar action has already been taken. The necessary pipes have been on order for some time now, but owing to pressure of Govern ment work consequent upon the war, there may be some delay in obtaining them. Every effort will, however, be made to have the proposed work carried out as soon as possible. ? It is anticipated that the duplication of the suctiori will make it possible to shorten the rotation period to 23 or 24 days, instead of 28, as at present. Fodder Growing*.-The attention of* .-Hay Area settlers is particularly drawn to the notes by Mr. H. R. Alexander (Chief In structor at Leeton)-in this issue on Jap anese millet, and also to the notes on the growth of broom millet.
