CONTROLLING SWARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1915

CONTROLLING SWARMING. "First, I am working for extracted honey principally as there is less work and far more money in it in the long run. Workr ing for comb honey would be rather more difficult; but I also do some of that. I store my bees with a super of combs on top for winter, or, if not, I add the super as soon as it becomes warm, and let the queen deposit some eggs in it until honey flow begins. When the flow starts I lift up the super and place another under it full of combs. When that is reasonably filled I again lift the top super, placing another set of combs under it, then examine the top super and see if all the brood has hatched, or nearly so. If it has I remove one frame from the centre, go to a hive that has frames of brood in super and simply exchange combs, always keeping some brood unhatched in the top super. As long as there is any space be low that super in the hive proper, your bees will not swarm. My hives run as high as my head, eight to ten supers, or if short...

SOME IRRIGATION PROBLEMS AND THEIR SOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1915

SOME IRRIGATION PROBLEMS AND THEIR SOLUTION. Mr. F. B. Lindfield, Director of the Montana Agricultural Experimental Sta tion, recently gave some sound advice to new irrigators through the columns of the "Reclamation Record" (U.S.A.). The following extracts frfc our conditions very well: Many people think that as they have an abundance of irrigation water theire is no need of conserving the natural rain fall. This is a great mistake. We have found in Montana that almost .without' exception it pays to cultivate the irri gated 'land early in the spiring. This conserves the moisture in- the ground and warms up the isoil. In this way it is possible to hold enough water, when coupled with the spring rainfall; to sup port the plants until they arei lairge enough to shade the ground before irri gation water need be applied. If the land has to be irrigated to bring up the orop or to carry it through the early period of growth, in the spring the yield is frequently reduced 25 to 50 per cent. ...

HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1915

HAY. The Bacon Industry.--Settlers at Hay, are invited to study the inforrfiation to be published in this and following issues in regard to the bacon factory ^at Yanco, for it is to be clearly understood that the fac tory is open to receive pigs .from the Hay_ Area, and, in fact, the whole of the River ina, as well as from Yanco and jVlirrool, subject to the same conditions. Suppliers from Hay will, of course, have to face the difficulties inseparable from transport to Yanco, but if any kind of a supply is forthcoming, it is felt that these could be readily overcome. Pigs leaving Hay in the morning would arrive at Yanco during the afternoon; The whole question is well worth looking into, for with: dairying well established at Hay, and an assured market so handy for all the pigs, up to standard, that can be produced, the pig-rkising industry on the Hay Area should develop by leaps and bounds to the financial benefit of the settlers them selves and the Scheme too.

RHUBARB. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1915

RHUBARB. By H. Hogbin. Rhubarb will do well on most of the soils on the Murrumbidgee Areas if strict attention is paid to cultural methods. Naturally it does best on deep rich loam, but it will1 thrive on many varieties of soils if deeply worked and well manured. As to its value as a home vegetable or a source of income little need be said, since it is so well and favorably known. Propagation.-Rhubarb is grown from seed, or propagated by division of the iroots. The latter is the better method to adopt if possible, as it insures reproduc tion with the same character as the parent, whereas in propagation from seed there is often a chance of variation. On a new settlement such as this, where there is little or no chance of older plants being obtainable for division, seed must in many instances be resorted to, for the present at any rate. Preparation of Soil and Planting.-Pre pare the seed-bed as for asparagus (see recently published article for full particu lars). Sow the seed in rows ...

FRUIT PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1915

FRUIT PESTS. Inquiries have been made as to what should be done if such pests as black aphis, thrips, and scale make their ap pearance on the trees now growing on the Irrigation Arsias as they have in other parts of the State, and as immediate ac tion is desirable wherever the presence of any of these pests is noticed, the follow ing information is published for the bene fit of those settlers who may be ignorant of the nature and effect of these pests. To be forewarned in this regard is to be forearmed. Black Aphis.-There is no necessity to describe the appearance of this pest; its presence can be readily detected, and it is easily identified. It affects stone-fruit trees, particularly peaches, nectarines and Japanese plums in the early spring of each year, but. it is easily controlled by contact sprays such as lime-sulphur solu tion as ia general spray in the winter, or a good miscible red oil about July. After the leaves show out, however, and the foliage has developed, a contact ...

?J. YANCO. The Bacon Factory.-Arrangements are well in train for the opening of the bacon factory for the slaughtering of pigs on the 1st proximo, and for the killing of butchers'jneat a month later, unless some unforeseen difficulty . arises. It is not considered that there will be a great number of pigs available on the Areas for some time, but there is . no doubt the number in the. district will rapidly increase as soon as the factory commences operations. It is, however, not intended to limit the operations of the plant to the Murrumbid gee Irrigation Areas alone, but to make the factory a general utility concern, drawing its supplies from the whole of the vRiverina, and selling in th'2 best available markets. p For the time being the manager of the factory has been left to act on his own responsibility as to purchasing, and prices . will be based, at his. discretion, on: (a) The live weight at factory, less a deduction of 28 per cent, for Wast age; (b) Carcase weight-dressed an...

TEFF GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1915

TEFF GRASS. Some time ago Mr. G. B. Newman sup plied some samples of Teff grass seed, whioh is said to have given record results in South Africa, and has there in certain localities practicably superseded oaten hay. Mr. 'Newnian states that he has had three crops off one sowing in one season, and that in anything like a fair season it may be cut seven weeks after sowing. Subsequent cuttings depend en tirely on the season, and, under irrigation, the water supply. The sample of seed supplied by Mr. Newman has "been for warded to Leeton, and the matter brought, under the notice of the Land Settlement Officar, who states that there is every reason to believe that the grass would be a . valuable addition to those being intro duced on the Areas for summer sowing . Mr. Alexander has experimented with two varieties of the grass (red and white) on >red loamy soil on the Richmond River, but under the conditions obtaining in that district, it did not prove a success, owing/no doubt, to the ...

Soil Improvement. (Concluded from previous issues.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1915

Soil Improvement. B7 H. J. BEAUND. (Concluded from previous issues.) Rotation of Crops.-The benefit that ac crues to the crop, and hence the farmer by not growing the one particular crop on the same soil year after year has been proved by practical experience for cen turies-although there are still many old and experienced farnjers who do not prac tise a definite rotation, the majority of those who have come under my notice are paying dearly for this neglect, as their crops are always more or less diseased or regularly attacked by insect and fun goid pests. The expressions clover sick, ipotato sick, or wheat sick are familiar, and are plain indications that the soil re quires renovating. Not necessarily that the soil in question requires large dress ings of natural (farmyard) or artificial manures to bring it back to " heart" again, but rather that a rotation of crops is required. The average farm soils (and the Murrumbidgee irrigation soils are con siderably richer in mineral plant...
