VEGETABLES. October Calendar. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

VEGETABLES. October Calendar. By H. Hogbin. Tomatoes can still be sown and planted out this month. Matchless and-Burpee's Red Stone are good varieties., A method which will be of interest is now being tried at the Experiment Plots, that is sowing the tomato se§d direct in its permanent quarters. A good many settlers (acting on my suggestion) are also trying this experiment. The land is pre pared exactly as if for planting in *the usual way. Three or four seeds are then sown in the place of a plant, and lightly covered with soil or litter. When the seed has germinated and the weakest plants are distinguished they are pinched \ out-not pulled, as that will disturb the roots of the stronger plant which is left. The difficulties connected with planting out are well known, and if this method is proved practicable, these difficulties will to a great extent be avoided and the sav ing of labor will also be very consider able . The seed on the sectipn sown as above has germinated well, and i...

NOTES FROM THE AREAS WENTWORTH. San Jose Scale. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

WENTWORTH. Saii Jose Scale. The Manager of the Area recently for warded to Mr. W.J. Allen a piece of bark cut from a nectarine tree on one of the orchards at Wentworth, with a view to finding out the nature of the trouble from which the tree was suffering. It transpired that the sample was very thickly encrusted with San Jose scale (As pidiotus Perniciosus), and the Depart ment stated that if the tree was as badly infested all over as the sample submitted, the best thing to do would be ? to light a fire round it and then have the tree dug out, i.e., provided the surrounding trees were clean. In t'he event, of that drastic course of action not being con sidered advisable, several sprayings with kerosene emulsion or lime sulphur were recommended which-: would cleanse the tree in the course* of time. It has been pointed out by the Mana ger that possibly other orchards on the Areas may be affected by this pest, arid he suggested that with a view to placing the matter beyond doubt, a tho...

Alsike Clover and Peas for Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

Alsike Clover and Peas for Figs. BY ONE WHO HAS TRIED THEM. Lucerne has been justly termed "the king of Fodder plants," on account of its many good qualities, but some of these qualities are common to the whole family of legumes, and under certain conditions it is quite feasible that other characteris tics of some members of the legume fam ily may give them an advantage even over lucerne, although this would, of course, only blunder exceptional circum stances . This point has been brought under no tice by some remarks recently dropped \ by Mr. W. E*. Shoobridge, of Bushy Park, Tasmania, to a conversation with whom reference was made in the last issue of the "Irrigation Record'' in an article on the growth of sugar beet for pig feeding. "I am very pleased," Mr. Shoobridge stated after his visit to the Irrigation Areas, "with what I have seen there, especially with the method of Gov ernment ' assistance and the provision made for supplying settlers with stock rnd the establishment of ...

JAPANESE MILLET. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

JAPANESE MILLET. By H. R. Alexander. Experience gained on the Areas during the past year has forcibly demonstrated to me the fact that for a cheap fodder, with a very wide range of uses, Japanese Millet stands out as one of the best that can be produced under irrrigation here. For this reason I would advise every settler with a quantity of stock to feed to endeavor to plant, out a consider able area of this fodder during this sea son. Care should, however, be taken that it is not planted tooJ early, as the whole of the members of thfe millet family are particularly sensitive to frost. Once established, however, there is no reason why a well planted millet field should not /-ield a continuous crop of good fodde, right throughout the sumriier season. . As previously pointed out, Japanese millet is strongly recommended as a fod der for green feed, but it is not to be re commended for hay in preference to Hun garian millet, which has advantages over Japanese millet as a' hay crop only. ...

Instructional Notes. BROOM MILLET AS A POT BOILER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

Instructional Notes. BROOM MILLET AS A POT BOILER. Amongst the crops that can be classed as sure and remunerative pot boilers for irriga tion farmers may undoubtedly be number ed broom millet. In fact, on small farms, broom millet and tomatoes appear to be the two best pot boiling crops for first year settlers to plant. One Yanco settler during the season just past, received £40 per ton for his broom millet, and his pad dock averaged 7 cwt. per acre. He stated that he could readily have secured another 3 cwt. of millet per acre had he employed the necessary labor in harvesting. More over, he took too much pains in grading and classifying his heads. As a matter of fact he received practically as good a price for his second quality stuff as he did for his prime material. He states definitely that it really did not pay him to classify and grade his millet at all. Needless to say, the expense and time he could have saved in this regard would have been considerable, but still his case ma...

Dairying and Irrigation. (Continued from previous issue.) Pumps and Engines. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

Dairying and Irrigation. B7 G. H. TOLLET. (Continued from previous issue.) Pumps and Engines. As regards pumps and engines: Of late years centrifugal pumps have been so; perfected as to be capable of deliver ing water to almost any height, and as they are cheap and require little attention or repairs, they have become very popu lar with farmers and graziers. In engines there is a very wide range of choice, steam, oil, petrol, gas, etc;, and with many it is a question of cheap fuiel. For that reason portable or trac tion engines are much used, but they have the disadvantage of always requir ing an attendant. In America, steam plants for individual irrigators are not now often met with, the> aiitomat^c plant, if one may so call it, being pre ferred. Of the three fuels named, pro ducer gas comes first, and for comparison saike, if we call it 1, crude oil and kero sene will be 2 (with a small balance in fajvor of crude oil), and petrol 3. All of these admit of being worked for severa...

Soil Improvement. (Continued from previous issues.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

Soil Improvement. BT H. J. BRAUND. (Continued from previous issues.) Compost Depot.-An ideal compost depot would be. one with a cement floor and a watertight roof above it, and with the floor graded so that the liquid portions of the manure as they percolated through, the heap would drain into a pit or slump near 'by, where by means of a pump they- could be poured over the top of the heap to keep up the vSuppfy of moisture, and thus, together with the natural warmth of the heap, the fer mentation would be kept going until com pleted. A compost heap should be on every farm, as it is an expression of true .agricultural economy. In the compost nothing is lost. All the weeds and rub bish growing along the settler's dlitch banks and in odd corners c.o.n be collected and placed in layers in the heap. To these weeds and any other vegetable or animal refuse that may be collected is added all the fresh horse and cow manure. Straw, weeds, a:nd farmyard manure generally, and if the mass is too...
