THE CITRUS ORCHARD. The manuring of citrus trees should now bo (lone. Many an inexperienced man lias, purchased a bearing citrus or r-hnrd, and after a season or more has wondered why the crops are not heavy and regular. The whole success of cit rus fruit cropping in the average coastal soils is dependant upon artificial man ure. Blood-and-bone, bone-dust, super phosphate and .potash, if obtainable, may be applied to bearing trees up to •30-cwt. per acre, either combined or one alone. Two dressings should be made, one in the early spring and a second at the present time.
EXPERIMENTS IN FATTENING GRASSES. Glen Innes Farmers' Valuable Work Will Help Stock. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 17 January 1919
EXPERIMENTS IN FATTENING GRASSES. Glen Innes Farmers' Valuable Work Will Help Stock. Mr'. Robert Chard. of Kookabookra (to tlic oast of Glen Innes), has proved that Tall Fe-sque grass is suitable for the ».w England climate as a fodder for cattle; the stock showed marked partiality 'for it during the cold winter months. During last winter, when the season was .particularly dry, Mr. Chard kept his cattle fat on the grass pas tures. He has been experimenting with English grasses for fodder purposes for some years, and his success with Tall Feisque has resulted in many of the neighbors ; and others along the Table .land, going in for paddocks of the suc culent feed. Another gras.; to prove very valuable in the Glen Junes district for both sheep and cattle is Phallaris JBulbosa. Mr. G. Morris Simpson, of Stonehen,ge Station, has been experimenting Avith the grass for some years, and has proved its worth beyond a doubt for climates situ ated on the Tablelands of the State.

THE WEEPING WILLOW. Will Help Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 17 January 1919
THE WEEPING WILLOW. Will Help Farmers. The fodder plant that best deserves to be brought under the notice of the man" oil the land is the good old"weed ing willow. The stock-owner who fails to distribute it along every avail able watercourse and in every swampy spot in his territory isn't availing him self of one of the best helps towards pulling stock . through hard times. Cattle greedily eat the soft green leaves and the small sticks. Even when tihe branches arc .bare for a couple od: months in winter the fallen-leaves are relished by cattle. As food the vege table seenis to have no ill effects upon, tlio digestion of animals fed almost en tirely on it. As to jilanting willow well, every stick stuck in a moist spot will root and rapidly grow into a beauti ful shady tree. When 'putting in cut tings it is advisable to select sticks long enough to be out of Strawberryrs reach, or she will lop off the top too often.
ROTORUA New Zealand's Thermal Wonderland. (Continued.) A Wonderful Hot Lake. THE ROTOMAHANA CRUISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 17 January 1919
* New Zealand's Thermal Wonderland. (Continued.) A Wonderful Hot Lake. THE ROTOMAHANA CRUISE. Boating 011 a boiling lake is one of the many bizarre sensations which the New Zealand Ther mal District affords the traveller. Conveying though it does more than a suggestion of thrill U«d adventure, it is a perfectly safe experience, and is enjoyed by many huntlreds of people every summer. The hot lake is Rotomaliana (Maori for "Warm Lake''), about twenty miles from Rotortia, filling a huge chasm in the steam-riven •country between the crater of the one-time great : Waimangu Geyser and Mount Tara-wera of sini ster memory. The Government Tourist Depart ment's one-day excursion combining a cruise on Ro-tomahana with a survey of the Tarawera volcanic district is a marvellously interesting thermal-region expedition. On the "round-trip" route from Rotorua t° Rotornahana the traveller passes through the Tikitapu Bush, skirts the shores of the pretty • turquoise-lmed Lake Tikitapu and the green ...
ONLY SOLUTION OF DROUGHT PROBLEM. Rivers Dammed will Provide Against Shortage of Water Always. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 17 January 1919
ONLY SOLUTION OF DROUGHT PROBLEM. Rivers Dammed will Provide Against Shortage of Water Always. Mr. C. J. Salter, a well-known pas toralist in the Dnbbo (N.S.W.) district, referring to tlie shortage of water in the western districts of New South Wales, says that neither the government nor the people have 'profited by the experi ence of past droughts. Thirty-six years ago, during a long-continued drought (he says), the Bogan and the Mac quarie rivers were only a series of dis connected waterholes, from their con fluence with the Barwon to the towns of Dubbo and "Canon-bar. Those were hard days, and the lessons with which they were fraught might, not to be un heeded. The remedy (uVTr. Salter says) is simple. The western rivers ought to be dammed at intervals of a few miles. These weirs would cost the state a few thousand pounds, as compared with the immense State expenditure on unproduc tive works. "If the government will not do it without pressure," Mr. Salter adds, "I mid suggest the...

(■Continued.) The Gordon Hiver lias no peer in Australasia. Jt lias about 25 miles of navigable water, up which steam launches, which are available at Strahan, move between banks bowered in virgin bush between the mountains rising in precipi tous grandeur near at hand, and with snow capped ridges dazzling the eye at some little distance. Smaller boats may penetrate a con siderable distance further. Good iishing may be obtained. The Government Bureau arranges "conducted excursions'-' to the Kiver Gordon during the summer. Space prevents us dealing with the attrac tions to the visitor iii and about the mineral fields. Suilice to say that of enthralling inter est is a visit to the smelters at Queenstown, a ride up "the haulage," a trip on the "Abt" three-rail raihvav, and to the great mines of Mt. Lyel!.

BIG PROFITS IN BANANA CULTURE. NORTH COAST GROWERS IN CLOVER. Department of Agriculture Tells How a Beginner May Start, and Probable Cost. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 24 January 1919
BIG PROFITS IN BANANA CULTURE. NORTH COASi GROWERS IN CLOVER. Department of Agriculture Tells How a Beginner May Start, and Probable Cost. The Tweed banana growers are reap ing a rich harvest as the result ot' thd inability of the Fijian fruit merchants to .market their goods in a regular manner for some months past. 'Conse quently, the growers in this State are at the .present time getting 23/-, 25/-, and 27/- a case for their .fruit—some thing never before dreamt of by most of them. Members of the Mullumbiinby Fruit growers' Association alone despatched to market nearly a thousand cases. The industry is only in its infancy, and it can be readily understood that within a few years' time more and more of the I markets will be supplied by North | Coast farmers. As a side-line it is a payable pro position, and it can be expected that many farmers, who iii the past have looked askance at the suggestion to grow bananas, will alter their opinion before the end of this season. A timely ar...

IS HERD TESTING BENEFICIAL OR NOT? DAIRYMEN SAY YES AND NO. Fear that Provisions in Proposed New Dairy Act will mean More Taxes. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 24 January 1919
IS HERD TESTING BENEFICIAL 08 NOT ? DAIRYMEN SAY YES AND NO. Fear that Provisions in Pioposed New Dairy Act will mean More Taxes. The benefits of herd-testing were dis cussed at a meeting of the executive council of the Primary Producers' Union in Sydney recently. The presi dent (Mr. McRae) stated that in the past the Mew South Wales Department of Agriculture had subsidised herd-test ing associations, ami it was desired that the subsidy be increased. Farmers usually were charged 2s. 6d. per cow, but very few farmers had taken ad vantage of the opportunities offered, and tTiose that had done so had very little good to say of it. Mr. W. R. 1-Jindmarsh said that it would be very little use continuing the system if the calf-rearing schemes were to be persevered with. Culls were being reared in his district, and these, after four months, would be sold, and probably would go to the soldiers under the latest scheme for stocking their farms. Mr. Gordon said that the Govern ment system was n...
