Points in Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Points in Irrigation. IT should be an axiom with every irri gation farmer that cultivation and con dition of soil is of first importance. The applying of water to the soil is of second account. Some farmers seem to have the idea that once the seed is cov ered up in the soil irrigation will do the rest. Snch an idea leads to the majo rity of failures in irrigation practice. Farmers should ever bear in mind that irrigation can never take the place of cultivation. The two must go hand in hand, for they cannot be dissociated in successful irrigation farming. -:j? .:{? v}: Tlie soils of these irrigation areas require special methods in applying1 water to ensure the best results. Some settlers are determined, it is said, to plant lucerne this spring instead of waiting for the autumn. In Victoria, Mr. El wood Mead states, spring-sown lucerne has . been successful when planted in. the usual manner and irrigated by means of flooding between check banks. The Victorian climate is, perhaps, mor...

Mildura—Merbein. HOW ONE MAN HAS MADE GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Mildura-Merbein. HOW ONE MAN HAS MADE GOOD. By ..-STEELE.. .BLAYBE. FOR many years the present writer has consistently held, in all his writings on the peopling* of the land, that the success or failure of any holding in a decent area of country depends upon the indivi dual settler who has the working of it. To specify a stated sum of money, and say to the prospective native settler or the immigrant, that the said starting sum will practically- ensure success is state ments without weight; one man will spend a couple of thousand pounds on a block of practically perfect lay and soil, and fai]; another ' will take a hundred pounds or so, and make good on an in ferior bit of earth. Everything depends on the man, and especially is this so on irrigation blocks; every square foot of earth should be mixed with the brains of the settler. * * * One little block of 26 acres at Mer bein is a continual source of pleasure and instruction to me. I will call the holder "New Chum" for the time-bein...

MILDURA—MERBEIN PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

MILDURA-MERBEIN PRICES. The above notes being upon the success of a Merbein new chum in growing and1 marketing vegetables as a 66 pot-boiling'9 industry, while his place was otherwise being generally developed, I fancy ' it may not come amiss if the list of prices obtained be appended. Undoubtedly the first thing the farm-maker must consider is to make the farm pay in some way from the very start. Many otherwise hard-working and purposeful smaller ir rigationists seem to hold the idea that vegetable growing is "Chinaman's work,'' and thus thrust aside the oppor tunity to bridge the period of waiting as substantially as it might be. Conse quently all is going out and very little coming in. I have not, of course, any idea as>to prices obtainable for produce sold locally in the Leeton district. I take New Chum's returns from a limited patch of peanuts alone, with the price of the roasted article at 7d. per lb., and one has some idea of the profit to be made from such lines. * * * I ...

Lucerne Cultivators. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Lucerne Cultivators. THE cultivation of growing lucerne has a marked effect in promoting the growth of the plant, . especially where irrigation is practised. To get an im plement to satisfactorily do this work has brought out a number of experi menters. The Water Supply Commis sion of Victoria became so impressed with the necessity of having a reliable machine to maintain the soil in a suit able' tilth during the growth of' the lu cerne crop that competitive trials of various , implements were called for. The trials came off on the 15th of last month at. Tongala, in the, Goulbourn Valley, Victoria.

LEETON AGRICULTURAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 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.. I t 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 witji 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.

Lucerne Cultivation and Management. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Lucerne Cultivation and Management. Mr. S. Mcintosh, Director of Irriga ~ tion, South Australia, has forwarded us several useful pamphlets dealing with the cultivation and irrigation of lucerne. Mir. Mcintosh has gathered quite an amount of information, which, with his own ex periences, makes up a valuable contribu tion to the literature on the subject. # * "Land" intended for lucerne must pos sess a good drainage to secure successful results. It does not particularly matter as to the quality of the soil, so long as it. does not contain too high a percentage v of clay or alkali, but a fairly deep loam of sandy rather than a clayey nature is best. The area should be fallowed at least three months before sowing, the weeds eradicated, and the soil well work ed up with a scarifier, disc, or Acme har row and pulveriser and rolled when ready for the seed. With a properly-prepared seed bed, from lOlbs. to 151bs. of good seed is sufficient to ensure a satisfactory stand. The soil should, if...

lit ligation IRecorfc. Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner tor Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.S.W. IN looking over the reports of irrigation .settlements in the United States and Ca nada, one feature seems to stand , out prominently, and that is the success -which the settlers have met in stock feeding! The most prosperous irrigation -farmers, as. a body, are those who are practising mixed farming, in which the .fattening of animals has a foremost .place, . It does not follow that fruit or vegetable growing should be ignored. It has its place in the scheme. Animal husbandry,.when properly car ried on, gives an ? advantage to the far mer in conserving the fertility of the soil.

Baling Lucerne Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Baling Lucerne Hay. WHILE in Victoria a few weeks ago the editor of the Irrigation Record made some inquiries regarding the manner in which lucerne was placed on the mar ket. In company, "with Mr. Fergu son (manager for Messrs. H. V. McKay/ of the Sunshine Harvester Wdrks, near Melbourne), a visit was paid to Bacchus Marsh, a district noted for lucerne production. A motor jour ney of about two hours brought us to Bacchus Marsh. * * * Messrs. Pearce Bros., produce mer chants, have had considerable experi ence in the growing and marketing of lucerne hay in the Bacchus Marsh dis trict. One of the brothers kindly vo lunteered information respecting the preparing of lucerne for market. At the firm's produce store there is a Dede rick press. This press has a horizontal .action. It may be likened unto a long rectangular box. The hay is fed into -an opening at the top of the box.

Among the Settlers. IX. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Among the Settlers. THAT portion of the Yanco irrigation areas known as Stony Point comprises some of the best iancl in the irrigation settlement. The name does not imply that there are quantities of stone in the land. It is a pseudonym suggested by an isolated stony rise in the vicinity. The^soil generally contains more humus in this locality, due to the greater ad ditions of vegetable matter through the leaves of the timber, _which _was fairly heavy. C. A. McCORMACK. Last week a few of the farms were visited in the Stony Point district, the first being that of Mr. C. A. McCormack farm 161 (53 acres). This settler was at one time a farmer in the Goulbourn Valley, Victoria, but left the land to become an engineer. Just prior to com ing to the irrigation areas he was em ployed as an engineer with'- one of the HeacflDitches. All head ditches constructed by the Commission appear when finished as shown in cross section in sketch No. 1. To make the ditches more efficient the portion mark...

Beekeeping. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1913

Beekeeping. By BKESWAX. THK man with the few hives of black bees would be well aclvisecl to get them Italianised as speedily as possible. There is no doubt about the superiority of the Italian over the common black bee. As honey gatherers, the Italian is far and away ahead. The Italian is also easier to handle. It is not uncommon to mani pulate a hive of pure Italian bees with out either veil or smoke. I would be sorry for the man who tried to find a queen b.ee in the average black hive un der those circumstances; and as for the bee moth, he cannot possibly live in a fairly strong hive of Italians. If Italian bees only were kept-or even hybrids you might go through one hundred hives and not find a trace of a moth worm. At the present price of Italian queens, it is safe to say that while bees are in posses sion of honey or brood combs, a bee moth should be a novelty. * * * The Italian bees, as the name implies, is a native of Italy, and is admitted by all beekeepers to be the superio...
