GREEN MANURING AN FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914
GREEN MANURING AllD FER- , TILISER. The system of green manuring to furnish a supply of organic mutter,, and to collect nitrogen in m the air in tho caso of the green manuring crop being leguminous-can bo employed with decided advantage on sandy soil, and also on1 medium soils, for fields to which it may not bo convenient to ap ply farmyard manure. To get the best results from green manuring, it is necessary to supplement ib by the application of fertilisers. On this subject a distinguished German pro fessor of Agriculture has the following, obsoi vations:-The necessity for" the addition of nitrogen is dependent on ireds, not able to face the winter without a set of furs valued at £60 or £70 being added to half a &lt;iozen other sets. I have known a woman, whose husband was on the brink of bank ruptcy, paving out a last available £10 note for a velvet coat.

The Benefit of Legumes [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914
The Benefit of Legumes It is a well known fact that a vig orous leguminous crop'such as peas or clover enriches the land in nitrogen and that another crop, say wheat or oats, following iu rotation will benefit from the nitrogen residues. llecent investigations .show, however, that t:ie cereal may derivo benefit from the ~.e/ unio even when both aro growing at. tho same time. In tho ".Jour. Agric. Eci.,'' vol. 3, experiments aro describ ed bearing this inferonce. Oats were grown in quartz sand in small pots placed iu larger pots also filled with quartz sand, but'growing peas. Tho inner pots thus grow oats only and ti e larger outer pots peas only, and in both eases all the necessary plant) fo il-; were added except nr. rogon. The inner pots wero of two ki;ids. WJhto D'.r3V wero of the ordinary porous pattern the oats grew vigorously. In the law!r case it is believed that soluble nitrogen ous matters diffused through tho inner pot from tho peas growing outside. Confirmation of th.es:j...
Potato Spraying LIME-SULPHER EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914
Potato Spraying LIME-SULPHU11 WXP ERIMENTS. In a report giving tho results of te cont tests, the demonstration farm m New York Slate feays it seem.s evident that lime-sulphur is not destined to take the place of 'Bordeaux mixture as a spray for potatoes, in spite of the fact that it is cheaper and no doubi very convenient to use. Under inon favorable conditions, in which late Wight occurred earlier in the .season and to a greator extent, tho treatment ?with l:me-sulphur might have produced different results, but at present is not promising. Tho Jime-sulph.x proved harmless it; the potato foliag- as far as burning i> ' concerned, but it proved to have a distinct dwarfing effect quite .similar to that noted in tho previous season's ex periment. The lime-sulphur also lack ed tho beneficial or stimulative effi-c.t derived from the Bordeaux mixture, which preserved the foliage, prolonged tho life of tho plants, and thereby in creased tho yield even in the partial absence cf fungus dis...

MIXING MANURES. The following directions arc given, with regard to the mixing of artificial manures by the British Board of Agri culture:-Probably it is n.->w univer satly known that sulphate of ammonia must- not be mixed with any manure holding free lime, notably basic slag and precipitated phosphate. The im mediate result of making such a mix ture is the liberation'of free ammonia, whose presence in tlio air can at once be detected l>y its pungent odour. If it J'S desired to apply sulphate of am monia with one of .uesc substances to any particular area of ground, the phosphate .should be put on a month or more before tlio other substance. Sulphate of ammonia may. however, bo mixed with tho other ordinary ma nures, such as superphosphate, dissolv ed. bones, boj!" meal, phosphate, dis solved bones, bone meal, lcainit, sul phate and muriate of potash, and nit rate of soda. Nitrate of soda should not be-mixed with superphosphate, dis solved bones or dissolved guano. Not only doe...
