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

TEFF GRASS. As already . announced, experiments with this grass are being conducted at Yanco, following upon very successful trials- up in the north-western parts of the State. Apparently, however, the experience of the ^Government Agrostologist (Mr. E. Breakwell), at the Hawkesbury College, has also been fairly satisfactory. He . sums up as follows in a recent announce ment (1) It is a very quick-growing grass, and, owing to the rapid germination of . the seed, is very successful in combating weed growth. Even Couch grass is kept under by Teff. (2) It can be recommended as a catch crop between the harvesting of a winter fodder crop, such as wheat, and the sow ing of another following winter crop, such as oats. In spite of these advantages, however, it cannot be expected to replace sorghum or maize as a summer crop on suitable soils. But on poor soils too light for these crops Teff could be grown to advan tage. It may be worth while on these Areas as a catch fodder crop after the wi...

WENTWORTH. Grazing Leases. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

WENTWORTH. Grazing Leases. The Went worth Irrigation Area consists of a large quantity of non-irrigable land in addition to the irrigated holdings. Until about 18 months ago an extensive portion of this dry l^nd was utilised as a common for settlers, but having .given notice that they could not continue the then current agreement, it became necessary to make other arrangements for the utilisation of the land. After full consideration it was decided, in accordance with the wish ex pressed by the settlers themselves, to subdivide the whole of the non-irrigated land mainly as grazing areas. The work has now been completed^ the actual sub division being as follows Non-irrigated holdings for grazing pur poses: 47 blocks in areas varying from about 10 acres to 336 acres. Rentals from 19/2 to £17/10/2. Non-irrigated holdings for wheat grow ing : 4 blocks in areas varying from 142 acres to 190 acres. Rentals from £17/15/4 to £28/12/11. Small irrigated holdings for workmen's homes : 4 blocks...

The A.D.F.A. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

The AD.FA Last issue a report was published of some of the speeches delivered by the Mildura representatives of the A.D.F.A., who recently met the Leeton settlers. This issue reference will be made to some of the questions asked at the meeting, and the replies given thereto. How is the Association Financed?-It was explained that in Mildura a levy of 5/ per ton was miade upon fruit; 4/ of chis went to help finance headquarters, and 1/ to help to finance the local asso ciation. This levy of 5/ is struck by nearly ever branch, but each one has the matter in its own hands. It is collected before the fruit is packed." The associa tion does not finance growers-that is done by the packing houses and other in stitutions. What steps would be necessary to form a branch of the association on the Irriga tion Areas?-The settlers would simply have to get together and forward an ap plication to the A.D.F.A. conference to be admitted as a branch. The applica tion would be granted, for the associati...

HOW MUCH HAY HAVE YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

HOW MUCH HAY HAVE YOU? This will be a very common question on the Areas during the next few weeks, and opinions will vary as to the quantity in any given stack. This is only natural, for to make a fairly accurate estimate of hay in mow or stack, the character of the hay must be considered. Short hay with large heads will weigh heavier than hay with longer straw or coarser. The mariner of stacking also counts as well as the size of the stack, for the larger the stack, the more compact the lower por tion will be. "Perhaps as fair an esti mate as one could arrive at," says one writer, "would be to take 500 cubic feet to the ton 'with newly-stacked hay. Of course for very closely-packed hay per haps 400 or 450 would be nearer correct.'' There are many rough-and-ready me thods of cubing a stack, but a fair esti mate can be arrived at by calculating the square portion on its actual measure ments and the top by taking the sides of its base multiplied by the height of the top and dividing b...

YANCO. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

YANCO. School Crop-Growing Competitions. Early in the year the headmasters of the various public schools on the Yanco Areas met and decided to arrange that their pupils should grow small plots of maize and potatoes during the present season, on the understanding that prizes w,ere to be given to the most successful grower, in accordance with a schedule which has already been published in these columns. Unfortunately the winter was so wet that nothing much could be done with the proposed plots, and owing to the fact that the school examinations take place during the month of November, and the teachers have been busy preparing their pupils, more particularly as schools have been short staffed owing to the number of teachers who have enlisted, the pre sent year has been an abnormal one, and the competitions have suffered according ly. It is, however, proposed to take the matter- in hand immediately the inter mediate and other examinations are over, and arrangements are being made for th...

Instructional Notes. FRUIT GROWING. Vines. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

Instructional Notes. FRUIT GROWING. Vines. Disbudding.-During the present month of November, it will still be necessary for settlers to see that this matter is not overlooked, as suckers will still make their appearance. After November, how ever, there will be little further trouble in this direction. Tying Up.-All canes making a rapid growth that have not of their own accord caught on to the trellis wire should be tied so that they will not be broken by the wind. It should be remembered that in the case of some varieties use will be made of these canes when next year's pruning is under consideration. Oidium.-It is not likely that this trouble will make its appearance on the Irrigation Areas, although the season be ing less dry than last year, there is more possibility of it. In the case of all pests-, however it is well for settlers to be on the lookout as one can ne.ver be sure that the Irrigation Areas are going to be im mune from the afflictions from which orchardists and vigner...

GENERAL AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

GENERAL AGRICULTURE. Ploughing and Harrowing.-On the well settled portions . of the Areas, farms worked by good farming methods should from now onwards show a fair return. One thing which is being generally recog nised is that ._ no matter how well the soil may turn up on the bulk of the Areas' soils, there is a tendency for the land to soon settle down hard unless it is harrowed immediately. It is therefore advisable to see to . it if possible that the land ploughed is. harrowed the same day. If this practice be followed, the soil will be brought to a much better tilth, and possibly additional harrowing will be ren dered unnecessary. . As the hay crops are now coming off, settlers are strongly advised to lose no time in turning the cereal lands over. Be sure to turn the stubble under; do not burn it off. Its effect in providing humus for the, soil and making it more open, cannot be too strongly insisted on. Chaff and Binder Twine.-While on the subject of the hay- crops; it is well ...

NOTES FOR THE AREAS. HAY. Feed the Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

jSI NOTES FOR THE AREAS, j| HAY. Feed the Cows. Mr. W. R. Colwell, the Resident Inspec tor on the Irrigation Areas of the Depart ment of Agriculture, who recently visited Hay, is anxious to see the settlers go in more for the conservation of fodder. While paying a tribute to the splendid natural pastures of the present time, he points out that they are about to pass away for the season-and what then? Here is his message: "In the' south-west, Nature seems to have defied man to grow a rival or su perior to her own natural and wonderful herbage. Stock will readily eat practical ly any introduced feed, but will not for sake Nature and her supplies if Provi dence has been generous enough to pro vide sufficient moisture to produce the succulent herbage that grows so well- at Hay. But with the approach of summer the natural grasses, etc., are rapidly dis appearing. A few hot days coupled with a stiff westerly will now very quickly denude the landscape of ail the natural milk '.producing fe...

Memorial to the, Late Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

Memorial to the, Late Commissioner. Some time back the question of the erection of a suitable memorial to the late Commissioner was raised by the Leeton Settlers' Association, who suggested that the officers might combine with the settlers in making the memorial one worthy of our late Chief. The matter was duly considered by the head pffice staff, but as negotiations had already been entered into (with the consent of Mrs. Wade) regard ing the erection of a monument at the late Mr. Wade's grave in Waverley Ceme tery, it was eventually decided that the original idea be proceeded with, and ar rangements made to collect the necessary subscriptions from that portion of the staff not actually located on the Irrigation Areas, leaving the subscriptions of the officers at Leeton and Griffith to be disposed of as they and the settlers' representa tives considered best. The arrangements in connection with the erection of the monument have now been completed, the work being carried out by Messr...

Concrete Checks. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1915

Concrete Checks. Before his death, the late Commission ' $> er for .Irrigation issued instructions that experiments should be carried out with a view to evolving a suitable type of con crete check for farm head ditches, the idea ; being to . prepare designs, specifica tions, and estimates for the use of set tlers who might desire to instal perman ent structures of this nature on their farms. The late Commissioner's idea was to have the checks made as cheaply as pos sible, with a view to" saving expense to settlers, and to enable the plates to be safely handled in and out of any vehicle in which they might be transported before placing in the ground. He suggested that experiments should be carried out to as certain how old second-hand fencing wire cut up into short lengths and scattered through the concrete would act. The idea has been fully gone into by the Designing Engineer at Yanco, and it has been found that reinforcing with short lengths of fencing wire is not ^prac ticable,...

But one tells me to plant Bin. apart, and another 10ft. apart. What is the proper distance? Also, the right time to sow? Thanking you in anticipation. Will you also please state right time and way to sow Kurrajong seeds? The following information has been ob tained in reply: Kurrajong.-The best time to plant Kurrajong seeds is September, but they can be grown with success until as late as Christmas, but if seeds are planted now that the weather has begun to warm up, the beds should be sheltered until the young plants have hardened sufficiently to withstand the hea^t. The seedling^ should be allowed to remain 12 months in the seed bed, so that planting out in the field should not take place until next Septem ber.

CO-OPERATE! A great deal of interest attached to the recent visit to the Murrumbidgee Areas of Mr. W. B. Chaffey, the founder of the Mildura settlement and the pioneer of irrigation settlement in Australia. He is still intimately associated with the many business activities of that progressive and successful district, so much so that other leading business men of the .place refer to him by common consent as "The Boss." Mr. . Chafifey's life has been ,a very full one-rich in uncommon experiences. As regards Mildura alone he could have told a story that would have been deeply in teresting to settlers, for he has steered it through dark days as well as bright ones. He could have spoken not only as the Father of Irrigation in Australia, but also as a fellow worker, for he has a thorough understanding of the difficulties that are inseparable from the irrigator's lot, and he is still a large producer. However, he confined his remarks to one problem-which is, perhaps, the greatest the sett...
