Noxious Weeds. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Noxious Weeds. THE attention of settlers is directed to the fact that it has been determined to take decided action in connection with the destruction of noxious weeds. &L Particular attention is drawn to the settlers' responsibility in this matter, set out in Clause 5 of the Conditions attached to the taking up of irrigation farms, as published in the Government Gazette, which Clause reads as follows: " The lessee shall destroy all noxious plants and weeds on his block, and also on any land between the boundary of his block and adjacent irrigation or drainage channels, and shall keep the land free from such uoxious plants and weeds during- the currency of the lease." . The Commissioner has recently ruled that the settlers' responsibility extends in every case to the middle of the roadway adjacent to his block, or the middle of any reserve, either road or drainage, as the case may be. All weeds inside the main 'canal enclosure are the responsi bility of the Commissioner, but...

Beekeeping. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Beekeeping. By BEESWAX. WITH fruit-growing' and seed production beeis are indispensable. Fruit-growers and bee-keepers have at times come into con flict, the fruit-growers affirming that the , bees not only destroy a large quantity of ripe fruit and grapes but interfere seri ously at picking, packing, and wjine making. There is no doubt at wine-mak ing time, if there is a scarcity of honey, the bees are apt to scent the fresh grape juice and make things rather uncomfort able for the wine-makeiis; but this, in my opinion, is absolute proof that bees will not touch sound grapes. For in stance, take a large apiary in the vicinity of a vineyard in the month of February/ or when the grapes are ripe, in a season when honey is scarce, it is only 011 punc tured grapes that you will find bees work ing. If the bees punctured grapeis for themselves, it would require to be a big vineyard that one hundred hives of bees would not take every drop of juice from in a very few days, proving that bees...

Registration of Water Supplied to Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Registration of Water Supplied to Farms. IT appeals that in many instances sett lers are greatly perturbed over the regis tration figures displayed by the meter at tached to their Dethridge outlets. It is reported that, in one instance, a brand new meter, after the first watering, regis tered the figures "183." The settler ap parently immediately jumped to the con clusion that this meant that 183 acre feet had been supplied to his farm during the period of 72 hours. At 5s. per acre foot this would represent a debit incurred of £45 15s. The shock received by the sett ler referred to was so great that he imme diately broke the attachment-the infer ence being that he preferred to take the chances of being summoned under the Regulations for interference with the out let rather than be called upon to pay the amount registered by the meter. m #. * - ... In the circumstances, the manager thinkis it advisable to formally notify all sett lers that, the figures displayed on the meter register...

THE RENMARK HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

THE RENMARK HOTEL. RENMARK is a prosperous irrigation set tlement on the Murray River, South Aus tralia. It can claim to have the first trust public-house established in the British Empire. So many inquiries have been received by the management of the Ren mark Hotel from all parts of Australasia that it published a pamphlet-explaining the position-for distribution. * $ # It appears from the pamphlet referred to that "Renmark had no hotel from its start, and the promoters, Messrs. Chaffey Bros., induced the Government to insert in the Licensed Victuallers' Act 1892, a clause which made it practically a pro hibition settlement, which, as is often the case, meant a place where the illicit sale of liquor was carried on extensively and the efforts of the police, and the frequent penalties inflicted 011 the sellers, did very little to put-down the evil. TP W "At one time, when Renmark had less than 1,000 people, there were no less than 13 sly grog-shops. The leading residents of the town ...

Peanuts. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 October 1913

Peanuts. Dr. Smith, Leeton, has been very suc cessful in producing peanuts of excellent quality on his local irrigation farm. The seed is planted in rows from 2ft. to 3ft. apart, according to the variety to be sown. The peanuts are hilled and the irrigation water is run between the rows so as to permit a lateral saturation of the soil about the roots. They do not require a great quantity of water. From 161bs. to 201bs. of seed are required per acre. The seed should be sown from 15th to 31st October, the crop being harvested in April. The yield is about one ton per acre, the value varying with the market demand, but it is usually about 5d. per lb. for the raw product. Peanuts like a loamy soil, but almost any of the irrigable lands on the area would produce a pay able crop of the nuts provided it is well cultivated. Dr. Smith has some seed for sale.

Irrigating Small Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Irrigating Small Farms* A certain amount of trouble is being experienced at the present time in con nectibiiL with the watering of 2-acre farms around the town of Leeton. As a matter of fact, a pipe outlet has been provided for these farms, and a heavy water rate fixed, with a view to the occupiers being able to take water at any time. Unfortunately, however, in actual practice the carrying out of this idea in its entirety is a matter that in volves a considerable amount of diffi culty. O# Jfc w TP Most of the 2-acr.e block holders are men working round the Area, who only have their Saturday afternoons and Sundays for watering their blocks. It necessarily follows that during Satur days afternoons and Sundays there is a heavy demand for water; but as the En gineer for Water Distribution obtains no notice from small block holders as to what their requirements will be, he is in a- quandary as to how to make ade qtiate provision therefor withoutf .
