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

Beekeeping. By BKKSYVAX. Now that the spring is here, and the wild flowers are in bloom, the bees will be making great headway. With the supply of pollen, brood rearing has com menced in real earnest. Every hive should be examined to make sure that their supply of honey has not run out. If they are short of stores the easiest way to supply it is to give them a frame of honey from a hive that has more than enough. But if all the hives want honey we will have to give them the next best thing, and that is sugar, given in the spring. Give only a little sugar at a time. The method of giving sugar preferred by most bee men is to make a candy with sugar. It is a simple matter to feed a stock if the candy is made just right. It is only a matter of slipping a slab of candy be tween the frames, or, better still, remove one frame and put the candy down in its place. To make the candy take eight pints of granulated sugar and add one pint of water. Place on a stove and be sure that the fire does...

Poultry for the Irrigation Areas. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1913

Poultry for the Irrigation Areas. MR. J. Hadlington, Poultry Expert, De partment of Agriculture, visited the irri gation areas recently to note the local conditions and the prospects of poultry raising by settlers. As it was not prac ticable for the expert, with the limited time at his disposal, to meet many settlers, he stated what he considered the best mode of procedure to the editor of the Irrigation Record. The settlers, therefore, can be reached with the desired informa tion per medium of this paper. & # It was pointed out by the expert that it is now too late in the year to commence economic poultry raising. The initial steps must be taken in the autumn. The Leghorn is the fowl recommended. Were a person determined on entering the poul try industry at once 011 these areas, it would be "necessary to buy laying fowls. These would cost from 10s. to 15s. each especially a good laying strain. A cockerel from good stock would cost from 15s. to 21s. This would, of course, be...

Irrigation IRecorfc. Published Fortnightly under tlie authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at' Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. - Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leieton," N.S.W. THE arrangement between the Commis sioner and the Department of Agriculture to establish a number of .experimental' plots on the irrigation areas should, if properly carried -out, be a highly useful guide to settlers in determining what to grow and how to grow it. The world's experience in producing economic crops shows that environment influences in no small degree the yields of almost any plant. So pronounced is the variation often in one field-in returns from crops, that theory as regards the best thing to do must give place to actual practice. Much has been discovered during the past quarter of a century regarding the soil; but the erratic behaviour of plants under what the ordinary farmer might consider good enough cultural conditions convinces us that there ...

Notes on Irrigation Practice, United States. EACI-I irrigator is entitled, to the equiva lent of a continuous flow of 1/250th cubic foot per second, but-as it would "-be im practicable to have such a small unit, the right is allowed to accumulate and the water is delivered inf rotation.

Crops that can be Grown during the Coming Month. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1913

Crops that can be Grown during the Coming^Month. By W. MoEACHERON". DURING the coming month a few -.French beans may be planted for home use, care being' 'taken, to'have the land ploughed and worked to a fineTilth. The ground must be well irrigated before planting, so that there will be sufficient moisture to bring up the plant and carry it over the first ten days,/as a surplus of water is detri mental to the production of this plant. # #. # A few silver beet may also be planted, the. ground being manured well before planting in order to induce a good succu lent growth, for the leaves only are used in this vegetable,. and not the root. - # 4 ? ? # " ' .. Cucumbers may be planted for' home . use,'the ground being worked thoroughly before planting. A good practice in this connection is' to dig a larg'e iiole and place manure at the bottom, partially fill the hole with earth and mix well, repeat ing the process until the surface is slightly raised above the level.

SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1913

SUMMARY. By Frank Adams. Irrigation Manager, in Charge of Work in California. The essential feature of rotation of water delivery is its economy. The great est waste of'- an irrigation comes from dribbling' through farm ditches and over parched fields streams too small to accom plish much more than moistening the bare surface or equalling the rapid evaporation that occurs under usual field conditions!. Heavy unavoidable losses attend attempts' to supply "all portions of an extensive sys tem with water at the same time. The use of large heads run for only a portion of the time in one section of the main canal or in one or two of the main laterals, to be run in the other sections or laterals later, does away with losses^ les sens the time and the help necessary, and 2'ives far better results to the farmers. Rotation reduces evaporation and see page losses in the main canals and laterals by increasing the head and'the-consequent1 rate of flow and economises the time of the irrigators i...

Tobacco Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 October 1913

Tobacco Growing. ALB. GORNTTZKA. T'I-IE following instructions should be useful to settlers who intend growing' to bacco on this area. The young "seedlings should now be well advanced, and to 11 . hasten their growth a dressing or. I wo with liquid manure or fertiliser should be given. Fowl manure is very good for this purpose, and, as this is also tlie time for grubs and fungus to appear, the add ing of a little powdered sulphur to the liquid will materially help to produce, strong and healthy plants. The follow ing is the recipe for applying liquid manure: Use either tobacco fertilizer or a mixture of three parts of fowl drop pings to one of wood ashes, with a small teaspoonful of powdered sulphur to a gallon of the liquid. Care should be taken that the various liquid manures are not supplied too strong or too cold, in either of which conditions they will kill or damage the plants. Liquid manure, with 1 lb. of solids to 3 gallons of water, answers well. The tobacco fertilizer may ...
