Watering Two-Acre Blocks. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

Watering Two-Acre Blocks. Complaints are made from time to lime by settlers on Two-acre Blocks, who largely devote their attention to the growing of vegetables, etc., that they are unable to properly water their blocks owing to the length of time between each watering, according to the current sea son's roster. For the information of Two-acre Blockholders generally, it may be. stated that the amount of water allot ted to each of their farms provides for much more frequent watering than that given by the fifteen days roster period.. Th.e trouble is, however, that it is prac tically impossible to keep the channel supplying the two-acre blocks full, ow ing to the necessity of making arrange ments for the watering .of the farms in other partis of the Irrigation Area. If Two-acre Blockholders will give the En gineer for Water Distribution notice, it might be possible, in a great many cases, to arrange for a weekly watering, but even then the trouble is that most of the holders of these f...

Transfers of Irrigation Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 November 1913

t . ? ? ; Transfers of Irrigation Farms. The Manager writes:-"The opinion seems to be current amongst settlers gen erally that no difficulty whatever will be met should a settler desire at any time to transfer his block. This is absolu tely contrary to facts. In several in stances the Commissioner has agreed to alloA\r transfers to be effected by settlers who commenced operations with far too little capital, or who, through sickness or some other trouble, have been unable to properly develop their blocks. In all such cases, however, adverse circum stances must be proved to the satisfac tion of the Land Board. It was never intended that settlers should be alfowed to traffic in their blocks, and to sell out at a profit, with a view to taking up other blocks which may be offering, and it is intended that each application for a transfer made in future will be thor oughly investigated, with a view to see ing that nothing of this kind actually takes place."

Purchase of Chaff by the Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

Purchase of Chaff by the Commissioner. As far as possible the Commissioner s requirements for chaff will be obtained from the settlement. All chaff:, however, will be purchased through the Settlers' Co operative Society, according to samples submitted, and at current market rates. Absolutely no hay will be purchased, in the stack, but" only matured .chaff securely bagged and ready for market. Inquiries are continually being made' by settlers at the Office regarding this matter, and the above information is always given to" them. It is useless for settlers to personally see the Manager in connection with this mat ter,. as his decision to purchase everything from the Society will not be departed from., ;' ' # * .. .. At the present'rate oi' consumption the Commissioner's requirements only amount to about 50 tons of chaff per month; this will be a very small: proportion of. the pro duction of the. area this year, and settlers will therefore be wise in not depending on the Commissioner ...

The Measurement of Water. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

The Measurement of Water. By W. FRANCIS AI-IERST. FILL a gallon measure with water and you will have 231 cubic inches of water, which weighs 8 1-3 lb. By calculation we also know that a cubic foot of water weighs 62%lb. and measures 1,728 cubic inches 6*4 gallons. ^ 'ifc sfc When it comes to measure water for irrigation purposes it is difficult to ascer tain the exact quantity measured, owing to arbitrary-standards of what the measure should be. Ten thousand gallons of water, by accurate measurement, may be run into a reservoir, and in 24 hours that number of gallons will be materially re duced, but the loss can be accurately esti mated, and so can the exact quantity run out of it for any purpose be measured to the exact drop. But in the case of taking water from a running stream vari ous difficulties stand in the way of accu rate measurement. In measuring water from streams generally three standards or "units of measure," as they are called, have been agreed upon. They are the inch...

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

BKKSWAX. THE most perplexing of all bee diseases is .what is called the "disappearing trick/7 or. "spring dwindling." It is the greatest drawback the beeman has to contend with.. Very little is known of this dreaded disease, for very often our most expert - beemen lose the whole of their apiaries. From my own observations it comes from quite a variety of causes-perhaps the principal cause is a dearth of honey and pollen in the late autumn, causing the queens to cease laying before the winter sets in. The hives would therefore, con tain all old bees to go through winter and rear tbe first batch of young bees in the ?spring. If there be unfavourable weather the old bees are worn out before the first batch of brood is reared in the spring. # . # # It is a significant fact that hives that have worked well into the winter on bloom producing both honey and pollen will always come out strong in the spring, and I feel sure that, in a majority of cases, when the bees dwindle away in the wint...

Looking Ahead. PLANTING ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

Looking Ahead. PLANTING ORCHARDS. MANY settlers who intend to make fruit growing part of the business on a mixed irrigation farm wisely planted hay crops the first year, so as to better prepare the land for orchards. The hay crops will soon be off the land now, and it may be of interest to direct the attention of settlers to several important points regarding the planting of fruit trees. It will, perhaps, be considered by some that it is too early to think about orchard planting that is to take place seven or eight months hence; but it is manifest that as soon as the harvest is over it is expedient to get the land ready for planting the orchard the following winter. The experience on the irrigation areas shows that fruit of the most profitable kind can be grown here to perfection. Settlers have, in most instances, so far gone in for various fruits, including grapes, peaches, apricots, pears, citrus, etc. On the other hand, some farmers declare in favour "of oranges and lucerne as st...

When to Cut Wheat for Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 November 1913

When to Cut Wheat for Hay. The Department of Agriculture through its " Weekly Notes?' gives an opinion re garding the time to cut wheat for hay. It is stated that a farmer who is cut ting for his own use can cut at whatever stage he prefers, and generally speak ing it is better to let the grain mature fo some extent; but if it is for the Syd ney market, there is only cne stage, and that is a few days after it has flowered. Sydney buyers as a rule want hay to give variety to their ordinary feed, and for its aperient qualities, and conse quently they require it without the grain jn it. Some experiments were conducted at Roseworthy Agricultural College, South Australia, a year or two ago, wheat be ing cut at seven different stages, and the samples obtained were subjected to an alysis in the chemical laboratory. ; It was found that the best weight was obtained by cutting with the grain just in the dough stage, and all the flag dry. If cutting wTas carried out before that (here was a sli...

By W. MCEACHERN.

Do not forget that stacking at the right time, and ha.ving an experienced man to build your stack, is most im portant; .as, should Ave get heavy rains and a stack is not well built', or has very little protection,^ the rain, will damage a very large percentage of the material. I have known rain to go right through badly built stacks. ^ > .V' A good plan for protecting the stacks is to . make a cover of flour or pollard bags by cuttingIdown-the'se'ams and- then sewing them together in long strips of about four bags in width. Place them on the stack and 'sew strips, together. This "makes a cheap and good protection for the top of your stack.
