Seasonable Work THE ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

By "CULTUS." THE ORCHARD bummer pruning and budding should be concluded as soon as pos sible. In another fortnight the con ditions will not be so favorable. The final brood of codlin moths is now being hatched, and a deal of damage is often done in orchards early in Feb ruary. Experienced growers take no risk. They invariably spray apple ana pear trees thoroughly at this period with a solution consisting of two pounds of arsenate of lead and 50 gallons of water. The grubs become more voracious as the season advances, and an extra spraying should not be neglected. Apples are reaching the stage when bitter pit manifests itself on varieties susceptible to the malady. Nothing definite has been made known con cerning the objectionable condition. It is believed to be caused by an overflow of moisture that bursts the fruit cells. Watering must, therefore, be carefully done. This phase has been instructively dis cussed by Mr Osborne, the Ta-smanian Government expert. It is known, he says, t...

THE KITCHEN GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

THE KITCHEN GARDEN Kain is badly needed in the mar ket garden areas. French beans are suffering, from a lack of moisture. Cabbages and cauliflowers that were transplanted a few weeks ago have been seriously checked. Potatoes and tomatoes would be improved by a soaking of the soil. Pumpkins, melons, marrows, cucum bers, and squashes are showing the effect of dry conditions. When the vines that produce these vegetables are making rampant growth, the lead ing shoots should be pinched off. It will arrest the flow of sap, and in duce the formation of lateral shoots. These usually carry a large number of female flowers. There are male and female flowers. The two classes of flowers may be distinguished. The male flowers usually appear in great profusion during, the younger stages of the plant. They grow close to the stem, and are devoid of the small vegetable development oh the flower tendril that characterises the female bloom. It is advisable when two or more melons appear at a joint to ...

TREATMENT OF HONEY TO PREVENT GRANULATION THE CANDYING PROCESS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

TREATMENT OF HONEY TO PREVENT GRANULATION THE CANDYING PROCESS Mr. F. R. Beuhne, Government bee expert, deals with the treatment of honey in an instructive manner in the current Issue of the "Journal of Agri culture." In a moist district, it is stated, or in any locality late in the season, honey should not be extracted until the combs are well sealed over by the bees. Not only does the per centage of water in honey stand in a certain ratio to the humidity of the atmosphere at the time of gathering, but even after being extracted it will give off or absorb water from the atmosphere, acting in this respect much in the same way as salt. In the combs of the beehive honey is to a large extent protected against the varjring influence of atmospheric moisture by the wax cap with which each cell is closed by the bees when the honey has reached a certain de gree of density. The honey producer should adopt the same means of ex cluding moisture by hermetically clos ing the. vessels containing ...

PHYLLOXERA INSECTS LIFE HISTORY DESCRIBED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914

PHYLLOXERA • INSECTS < LIFE HISTORY DESCRIBED Last week the ravages of phylloxera, as described by Mr. G. H. Adcock, Principal of the . Viticultural Station, Rutherglen, were referred to. Towards the end of winter the insects come above ground and develop v>7ings. Having reached a suitable sr>re states Mr Adcock, these winged migrants lay eggs on the vine selected for the purpose. These eggs differ distinctly in size. From the larger, females are produced, 'while the smaller give rise to the male. This is the first appearance in the cvcle rf the sexes. These insects have their organs of nutrition undeveloped. Thev pair, and the result of the union is t.he fertilisation of the winter-egg alreadv described. The tiny male insect im mediately dies. His partner only sur vives him till the important function of egg-laying has been accomplished. In the life cycle of phylloxera there is what may be termed an "alternation of generations," and the true sex ual individuals are...
