DOOKIE COLLEGE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914

DOOKIE COLLEGE NOTES. . .Good progress is being mdae with the work. Up to date 470 acres : have, been sown. The gro.und is in good condition and every day now is of value. More rain is, however, required. The land on portion of the college farm is of such a nature that it breaks up very .finely when cultivated and ithe surface cakes readily after ra'in. In some places Lliis is preventing the young plants from showing through and unless rain falls soon some loss may occur. Even now the germination is rather irregular owing to.this land crust. This is one of the disadvantages of cul tivation, as it makes the soil too line. It has been found necessary in some cases to break the sur face with the wecder which was described last week. Light har rows would answer tho purpose •probably as well.. Great interest is being shown by the students in the drilling A gold medal is given for the best drilling every year and il. is counted as the highest honor to win this.
