IRRIGATION OR HARD LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

IRRIGATION OR HARD LABOR. Anyone who thinks that irrigating a 50 acre block is child's play only has to stick to the water while it is running during one rotation period, to find out how far he is from properly sizing up the situation. Still, many settlers who are just begins ning their irrigation experience with this season's waterings are bound to be a little down-ihearted if they find running water a more tricky thing to keep in check than they anticipated. To such we commend the following sketch, taken from the "Denver Field and Farm," as showing what an up-to-date American journal thinks of the science and art of properly applying water to the land. Making due allowance for the exaggera tion a humorist is permitted to indulge in, and the matter which it is apparent has only been added with a view to helping in getting the smile at the iright place, there still remains a lot with which our irriga tors will agree. But that the picture drawn is typical of a well-laid out pro perly...

WATER FOR STOCK AND DOMESTIC SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

WATER FOR STOCK AND DOMESTIC SUPPLY, A statement of the Acting Commis sioner's policy in regard to this matter was published in a recent issue of the " Irriga tion Record" as regards hand pumps, windmills, and power pumps. The matter of syphons, however, was not covered, and has been brought under notice by an ap plication by a settler for permission to draw water from channel for gardening purposes b}>- means of a syphon, and a decision has been given that-as in the case of power pumps-each application for permission to draw water from channels by means of syphons will be considered on its merits, owing to the difficulty of laying down any general rule for making a charge. Generally speaking, however, where the water is required for gardening purposes on an area up to half an acre in extent, and where the rate of delivery will not exceed that of an ordinary hand pump, no charge will be made for the supply.

SUMMER PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

SUMMER PRUNING. The advocates of summer pruning are apparently increasing in number, judging by the amount of publicity the matter is receiving in agricultural journals nowa days, but the trouble is that a greafr-xxnany of the opinions expressed are of too vague or general a nature to admit of the draw ing of^ definite deductions to meet any given set of circumstances. Perhaps this is.not to be wondered at when it is remembered how many factors have to be taken into consideration-vagaries of soil temperatures, rainfall, variety of tree, system of pruning, etc., oall play theiir part in deciding the question of whether or not- it is desirable to summe" prune. Like many other questions, this is one that every groweir must decide for him self, but there is nothing like practical ex perience as a guide, and for this reason special thanks are due to Mr. W. B. Brock (Farm 24, Leeton), for the notes wihich follow. Mr. Brock has himself tried summer pruning under irrigation, and he needs no...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

POULTRY NOTES. (By H. J. Braund.) [Arrangements have been made for Mr. Braund to contribute each issue, notes foi poultry keepers. Statements have been heard from time to time that fowls do not do well on the Areas; in fact, some who have h$d little success have even gone so far as to say that some poultry rearing difficulties cannot be satisfactorily over come. Mr. Braund has had a very large ex perience of poultry keeping-he has hatch ed up to 12,000 chickens per annum, and a fine lot of 160 birds to be seen at his re sidence at Mirrool is sufficient evidence that he can raise them successfully there. He intends to continue breeding in a small way so as to keep in close touch with the industry and study the local conditions, and in his notes he will write specially for the State's Irrigation Areas, which are all situated on the hot, dry (and sometimes, cold, wet) western plains.-Ed.] Hatching Season Over.-Early hatched chicks are the best. By this I mean that in this district thos...

HOW TO DRY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

HOW TO DRY. Apricots and Peaches.-" While you can obtain £9 per ton for fruit delivered at, your cannery, I do not think many set tlers on these Areas are likely to go in largely for drying." Such was the remark recently passed by Mr. G. . J. De Garis, one of the best known men in the Mildura district, and one who has had a very large experience of fruit growing in all its branches, after he had inspected the local cannery. There is no doubt a great deal of truth in this statement, and it is not anticipated that during the present season at any rate settlers will go in largely for drying their own fruit, but at the same time there may be a number who are looking ahead to the time when they may have to dry on a large scale, and these men may desire to experiment in a small way with their present year's crop and dry for their own use and that of their neighbors, so that when they do consider it advisable to dry they will have had the benefit of a con siderable amount of experience whi...

FRUIT NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

£ FRUIT NOTES. By W. J. Adams. Young Citrus Trees.-All young citrus trees that have been planted out this season and are dying off should be cut back into the green wood. If only the tops have died, however, it will do to lower the bandage which should be al ready on," so as the young limbs can sprout out above it. The young trees should be kept well cultivated and forked around; mulch them with any old grass or straw ov stable manure you have lying about. (See separate notes following these on cultivation.) Dormant Buds.-Those that have plant ed dormant buds should keep all other shoots above and below the bud well rub bed off. When the bud has grown to a shoot of about 15in. it will have shot out little side branches. Trim these off about 9in. from the ground, and leave three or four on. Cut the centre leader out, the thin little side branches will then form the tree. It does not matter if there are five of these little branches left on; you will have more to select from in the wi...

Legal Queries. THE SETTLER, THE CONTRACTOR, AND THE COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

Legal Queries. THE SETTLER, THE CONTRACTOR, AND THE COMMISSION. As some difference of opinion appears to exist as to the exact position of the three parties above mentioned in the case of the erection of a house for a settler by a private contractor, on the understanding that the building, if satisfactory, is to be taken over by the Commission on terms, it may be as well to point out that in all svtch cases the Commission does not know the contractor at all. His undertaking is purely one with the settler for whom he does the work. All disputes between the two must be settled as they would be in the case of a similar contract in which the Commission had no interest. When an application is made by the settler for an advance, however, the Com mission's inspector visits the job, and on his report the Management decides whe ther the structure is one upon which the advance can legitimately be made. The inspector may indicate defects that re quire to be remedied, but he does so, in the int...

VEGETABLE GROWING. November Calendar. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

VEGETABLE GROWING. November Calendar. ; There are few vegetables that can be profitably sown this month, except toma toes, melons, pumpkins, cucumbers, and vegetable marrows. With these sowings and plantings care should be taken that the soil is in a moist condition and a mulch of horse manure will be found very beneficial. When the melons, pumpkins, & c., have made a good growth, pinch the strongest shoots; earlier fruits will be the result. With all other crops that are established, such as French beans, tomatoes, onions, &c., keep the soil constantly cultivated, and give as little water as possible. The May and June sowings of peas will have been harvested by this, and generally a most satisfactory return has been the result. From an acre of Yorkshire Hero at the Experiment Plots, two tons were har vested. The plot of American Wonder, too, was an excellent one. Though not so heavy a cropper, this variety will be found the best to grow for the Canning Factory, as t...

HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

HAY. Experiment Plots.-Mr. Colwell, resi dent inspector for the Department of Ag riculture, is desirous of extending the ex perimental work now being done at Hay. Up to the present time grasses have been the only crops dealt with, but in view of the opening of the Bacon Factory at Yanco and the probability of Hay set tlers going in more largely for the produc tion of pigs than has been the case hereto fore, it is thought that good work could also be done on the lines of experimental fodder crops suitable for pigs. Mr. Col well will have made a visit to Hay just prior to the publication of these notes, and probably he will have seen some of the settlers on this matter. It is anticipated, however, that a further visit will be made in the course of a week or two, and in the meantime any settler who is desirous of having an experimental plot put down on his farm may expedite matters by com municating direct with the inspector, whose address is Leeton. It may not be generally known at Ha...

The A. D. F. A. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

The A. D. F. A. Fruit growers on the Irrigation Areas of New South Wales must without doubt be interested in the operations of the Aus tralian Dried Fruits Association, which practically controls the whole of the dried fruits produced in Australia. There-are, it. is true, a certain number of growers who do-not own allegiance to the Associa tion, but their numbers are few and their influence small. Bearing this in mind, it is easy to under stand the great interest which was taken in a meeting held at Leeton on the evening of the-18th instant for the purpose of per mitting the. directors of the Mildura branch of the A.D.F:A.-Messrs. J. J. T. Lever, W. B. Chaffey; and C. J. De Garis-to acquaint the settlers with the objects of the Association and the. steps it has" taken to achieve them. It is not intended in this issue to cover the whole of the proceedings of the meet ing. The matter is one of such importance that it is* felt the whole of the questions discussed should be given the fu...

Instructional Notes. TOPPING-UP PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

/ Instructional Notes. TOPPING UP PIGS. By H. R. Alexander. There is one matter which has been in my mind for some considerable time in connection with the topping-up of pigs which I think might be brought promin ently under notice at the present junc ture, seeing that the Bacon Factory is now about to open. I refer to the matter of arranging to get pollard and other mill by products by the truckload from the vari ous mills along the railway line. I feel that it is possible that very suit able arrangements might be made, say through the good offices of the Manager of the Bacon Factory, to secure these fod ders in bulk for the use of settlers in topping-up pigs; and for fattening pur poses I know of nothing better. I think it is very probable that arrange ments could be made which would allow of these mill by-products being supplied to settlers at prices which would compare more than favorably with those at which they could produce suitable grain crops for fattening purposes on their...

THE CANNING FACTORY. The Proposed Schedule of Prices. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1915

THE CANNING FACTORY. The Proposed Schedule of Prices. Referring to the schedule in connection with the prices of fruit and vegetables published in the last issue of the " Irri gation Record," the Acting Commissioner desires attention to be drawn to the fact that such schedule received his approval on the distinct understanding that the prices were to rule for the present; that is to say, when arrangements have been made for the permanent carrying on of the Commission, the matter is to be submitted to the new Commissioner, who may, of course, decide to make changes in the schedule rates. Price for Peaches. In the schedule of prices to be paid for the present at the canning factory in re spect of fruit and vegetables, the heading "Peaches" only refers to clingstones. As a matter of fact, it was intended that the same price for first and second grade peaches should be paid for both dingstone and freestone suitable for canning. It is well known, of course, that there are cer tain variet...
