KEEPING SWEET POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

KEEPING SWEET POTATOES. In replying to "an inquirer who asked for information as to the best method of keeping sweet potatoes over winter for seed, the " California Cultivator" states " Cold storage without doubt would be best. The next best method would per haps be to lay on racks in a cool, dry place, allowing air to pass freely over them. Some keep them in dry sand, but this is declared to be expensive and not a sure way. The following method is re commended in Wjickson's "California Vegetables":-"Take stout stakes, say 5ft. to 6ft. long, and drive them into the ground in a row and 5ft. apart in some dry place that is not sheltered by trees. Dig the potatoes and throw them up around the stakes to the height of 4ft. For a large field many such rows may be necessary; for a small patch perhaps one single stake will suffice. When all dug, put on 4in. of straw as .covering. After a week or ten days, according to the weather, the potatoes will have undergone a sweating process. They fi...

Instructional Notes. GENERAL FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

Instructional Notes. GENERAL FARMING. Weeds.-All weeds should be destroyed before the .seed ripens; if they are not there will be increased trouble stored up for the future. Thorough cultivation de stroys most weeds, and with the weeds go the main harborage for many insect pests that may mean damage to next year's crops. Autfumn Ploughing. - Arrangements should be made in regard to the farm work ,so that ;all the land possible can be given a thorough autumn ploughing. . This applies to the orchard as well as to other parts of the farm. If settlers only knew the numbers of insect pests that the autumn ploughing destroys, that work would be thoroughly carried out, irrespective of the great good it does to the land in other ways. Winter Fodder Craps.-It will soon be .too late to plant out those fodder crops on which the dairyman will have to depend for his stock feed during the iearly winter months. Nature does little during those months to help the cattle and pigs to keep going, altho...

HAT AND WENTWORTH IRRIGATION AREAS. Payment of Rent and Water Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

HAT AND WENTWORTH IRRIGATION AREAS, Payment of Rent and Water Rates. In view of the delay and irregularity which occurs in the payment of rentals and water rates on these Areas, it is thought that lessees may not clearly understand their obligations in the mat ter. The regulations gazetted since the con trol of the Areas passed to the adminis tration of the Commissioner for Water Conservation and Irrigation distinctly provide that rental shall be paid to the Manager .half-yearly in advance, whereas water rates are not due until the expira-. tion of each half-year. For instance, the rental for the present half-year, com mencing 1st January, 1916, is due on that date, and water rate for the half-year ended 31st December last is also payable on the 1st January, 1916. In each case one month's grace is allowed within which to make payment. It may, however, be pointed out that the lea?es issued in respect of holdings on the Wentworth Irri era tion Area prior to the administration being ha...

FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

FRUIT. By W. J. Allen. Cultivation.-Should rain fall during the month, -the soil should receive a thor ough cultivation immediately it is dry enough, and all young trees would benefit by having the .soil which may have been missed by the cultivator well loosened up. Where any weeds make their appearance in the orchard, 'the soil should be well stirred up with the cultivator, as all weeds, summer grass, etc., tend to rob the ground of the moisture which at this time of the year is so badly needed for the trees and vines. Irrigation.-Wherever water is avail able to irrigate fruit-trees or vines, it is more than likely that they will require a thorough soaking this month. See that the water is confined' to furrows, and be careful not to allow it to flood over any portion of the land; also that the best use is made of such water, and that none of it is allowed to ruin to waste. After the soil has been well soaked, and as soon as the land is sufficiently dry to work, give it two deep cul...

THE RUTHERGLEN BUG. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

THE RUTHERGLEN BUG. "Inquirer" asks for some information as to the best means of controlling the Rutherglen bug, a pest which has long been well known in South-eastern Aus tralia, and is reported this year to be causing considerable damage at such widely -separated points as Young and Barooga. as well as elsewhere in this State. The following -information may be of general interest: Once the insect has reached the flying stage, its control is one necessarily a matter of extreme difficulty. Spraying, with a view to its eradication is hope less, and it is apparent that fumigation would have a similar result. All that can be done is to endeavor to drive it away from the fruit trees, and this can be done only by making the tree ob noxious to it. The following remedies have been suggested by departmental ex perts or growers who have had previous experience with the pest: (1) Smudging or smoking out; (2) Spraying with benzole; (3) Spraying with tobacco; (4) Spraying with very diluted lime...

THE AUSTRALIAN DRIED FRUITS' ASSOCIATION. Trouble at Mildura. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

THE AUSTRALIAN DRIED FRUITS' ASSOCIATION. Trouble at Mildura. Recent files from Mildura indicate that the A.D.F.A. is there passing through a rather trying period; in fact, one journal goes so far as to indicate that there are possibilities of grave trouble ahead. The Dried Fruits' Association has been looked upon as one of the strongest of co-opera tive bodies in the Commonwealth, and one which has been of vast benefit to the growers it aims at assisting. Its control of the dried fruit trade has been little short of marvellous. It will be.interesting to watch developments, as if external in fluences succeed in upsetting the associa tion, supporters of co-operative effort will receive rather a set-back. At this dis tance it is of course impossible to say what internal alterations could be made with benefit to the working of the associa tion, but there is a great difference be tween internal reorganisation and external disorganisation.

What to Grow. PEACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

What to Grow. PEACHES. In the last two issues of the "Record" there has been published a list of peaches which are considered most suitable for the Irrigation Areas. An effort has also been made to obtain information from various sources which wall serve as a guide to settlers in connection with the important matter of the proportion in which these tested varieties 'should be planted. It is little use planting a peach no matter how well it may grow, if it is not likely to re turn high prices. Better far to plant a . somewhat inferior peach that comes in at a time of the year when high prices are likely to rule. Mr. F. Chilton, of Turramurra, is per haps one of the best known men in the Sydney fruit trade. In addition to his own orchard, he conducts a large busir ness in the fruit market, >and his wide knowledge of the industry has been re cognised by his appointment as a repre sentative of this State to the Pomologi cal Conferences which have been held to discuss such matters as ...

The First Yanco Fresh Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 3 January 1916

The First Yanco Fresh Fruit. The early Yanco settlers are lucky in that their first fresh fruit is ready for market during a season, when prices are exceptionally high. It is the generai opinion of the trade that although high prices may be anticipated for some years to come, the figures being obtained this season are quite exceptional. This ap plies particularly to apricots. During the last few weeks a consider able quantity of fruit, principally apri cots with isome early peaches, has been leaving the Irrigation Areas for the Syd ney market, iand it is pleasing to be able to record that the impressions of both the wholesale merchants and wholesale buy ers are very favorable, indeed. At this particular period of the year considerable quantities of apricots find their way to the Sydney market from Victoria, but Yanco apricots are bringing better prices than the Victorian fruit. In fact it has bsen said that if the quality can be maintained Yanco apricots will fill a decided gap that...
