LEETON AGRICULTURAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1913

LEETON AGRICULTURAL WORK. The Commissioner is: considering the advisability of carrying out by private contract a certain amount of the agricultural work which the Commissioner is doing for settlers, and he will be glad to hear from settlers who would be prepared to. undertake such contracts. It is con sidered that in many cases work of this kind would be a valuable boon to settlers who have done all that they can do on their own holdings, and are looking round for something to keep the 'Wolf from the door,' until such time as their blocks become reproductive. ' Mr. Broatch will be glad if any settler, wishing to take advantage of this proposal, will communicate with him in writing, stating the kind of work he would be prepared to under take, the horses and plant at his disposal, the period of the year when he could be depended upon to place his services at the disposal of the Commissioner, and his qualifi cations for the work. In all cases the work would be done for cash, on comple...

Beekeeping. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1913

Beekeeping. BY BEESWAX THE Yanco Irrigation Area has a great future before it as a honey producer. It should make the beeman and prospec tive beekeeper smile to see the hundreds of acres of lucerne that is being- sown and the thousands of trees being planted to form windbreaks around the boun daries, all making permanent pasture for . the bee. The man contemplating keeping bees would be well advised before making a start to make sure that there is, within a bee range-three miles-a sufficient quantity of honey-producing flora, be it lucerne, windbreaks, or our native timbers. Yellow Box and Red Gum are the best species of the latter, al though Black Box yields well a honey which is rather dark in colour; it blooms in March, when the bees are mostly at their best, and most of the other timber flowers are gone, making it, in my opinion, the most profitable timber to have in the vicinity of the apiary. * * * Before choosing a bee site be sure the proposed site is not already stocked. Be...

Co-operation. VISITORS DISCUSS THE MATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1913

Co-operation. VISITORS DISCUSS THE MATTKH. SETTLERS are assured of the producing power of the irrigable lands under pro per treatment. That being so, the next matter of vital importance is ob Portion of the Town of Leeton. The site of the new town of Leeton being* on a rounded eminence, it is difficult to get a general view of the new buildings erected or in course of erection. Much progress, however, is being made in the erection of business places on the respective sites purchased at the sales in April last. taining the best market values for their products. It has become an axiom that in marketing produce more or less of a perishable character co-operation among producers is absolutely essential. The settlers were early alive to this. They realised the advantages of combination in the matter-the broader aspect of the benefits of co-operation being only too apparent. The launching of the scheme presented difficulties to the new local association. A fair amount of capital was neces...

Irrigation of Profitable Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1913

Irrigation of Profitable Plants. By W. FRANCIS AHERN. THE practical irrigationist knows that plants draw their food from moisture and not from water. It: is quite true that mois ture comes from tibe water, but the idea is that moisture is a food solution, a pre paration for nourishing the plant-in other words the "pap." Water, when applied to the soil attacks the various Log Barn in process of Construction for Flue Curing'. Some settlers have plenty of timber on their holding's and may be enabled to economise in erecting- a log1 barn as shown. The illustration shows a barn in the first stage of construction.. A barn of this kind has proved to cure leaf perfectly. soluble salts, both organic and inor ganic, and causes a chemical change to take place, or, to be precise, a series of chemical changes, and in this way the elements in the soil are converted into food. There are many radical changes effected, such as fermentations, trans formations, and so on until the water converted into...

Tobacco Curing Sheds. ALB. GORNITZKA. MANY settlers have been asking for information regarding the construction of curing barns and sheds. The accompanying diagrams and illustrations will serve as a guide to settlers in the matter. Plan Sections and Elevation of Tobacco Flue Curing' Barn. Tlie above is an up-to-date 5-tier flue-curing "barn, built of burnt brick on concrete foundation. It i§ 16ft. by 16ft. by 20ft., and should have sufficient capacity to cure tobacco grown on 10 acres. The cost of this bam built, with, burnt bricks should not exceed £175. A similar barn 16ft. high with 4-tiers, built of semi-dried bricks or of Pise, should not cost more than £50. Ruberoid-covered barns are much cheaper than a brick barn. Fibro-cement should also make a good barn at reasonable cost. The success or otherwise of a barn, no matter what material it is made of, depends upon the curer having full control of the temperatures inside; au<^ tbe skill of the man in charge of the barn...

More Irrigation Proposed [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1913

More Irrigation Proposed REGULATING the Murray waters by storage has been talked of for many years. The report of the Committee appointed to enquire into the matter is now out. The Committee was appointed at the Premier's Conference, held in Melbourne, on 23rd January, 1911, and comprised Mr. J. S. Dethbridge, of the Victorian Water Commission, Mr. G. M. de Burgh, Chief Engineer for Water Supply, N.S.W., and Mr. Graham Stewart, En gineer-in-Chief, South Australia. The report is a lengthy one-the Committee stating it lias considered the river system as a whole. * * The ideal condition of regulation by storage would enable all water discharged from the catchments of the system, less inevitable losses, to be controlled and made available in the volumes and at the times most suitable. The attainment of the complete control at all times may be de clared impossible. The system of locks required to provide permanent naviga tion between the Murray mouth and Wentworth is being reported on fo...
