POTASH AND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914

POTASH AND CROPS. Olio of tho most striking effects of potash manures is the remarkable way n which they promote the growth of clovers and other leguminous plants. Thus when' potash is applied to a field of mixed herbage, it encourages the growth of tho clovers to such an ex tent" that the general aspeot of the vegetation is entirely changed. It also encourages the growth of the finer and-more-nutritious grasses A fur ther effect of potash is that it rondcra fh.i plant more resistant to the attack? of fungoid parasitos, well seen in the ase of rust on wheat, leaf-spot fun gus on mangolds, and even in some cases "finger and toe" in turnips. I'otaslv is tho dominant ma nu rial in gredient for potatoes, where it not only improves the quality, but gives a high er yield, which contains a larger-pro portion of marketable size potatoes.

Tho rape plant has a structure praotically identifical with the turnip. The special examin D-an of the turnip and rape was brought about from tho fact' that a better crop of oats was secured after ploughing rape than resulted from oats after clover. In this connection, Mr Jamieson declares, "Not to carry the turnip loaves off the 'field cannot be too strongly repeated. The benefit to the succeeding crop is well-known, though it was .not-realised that the absorption oP nitrogen was by the leaves, and that provision of this ele ment to the succeeding crop is the ex planation.

A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914

A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION-. * "'What is, the highest record wo can" oxpect a dairy cow to make?" is a query that lias often been made. As it was with-the trotting horse, 20 or 30 years ago, wlicm animals began to ap pear that could trot a mile in less than threo'minutes, for instance, Mamie S., making a record of 2.10, many thought that the speed limit of the horse. had lieen reached, and so it was with the dairy cow. When Yeksa Sunbeam, Guernsey.- made her trhonomcnal re cord of 857 pounds of fat in one year, it was doubted by many who had not studied thd breeding of dairy cows closely that her record would scarcely bo equalled, if over excelled. Not long after this; Colantha 4ih's Johanna,' a Hoistein, inado'998 pounds of fat, excel ling Yeksa Sunbeam's -record by 141 pounds of fat. Here the world's re cord remained for several years, hut it was finally displaced by. Bn.'iostine Belle Do Kol, who made in one year 1058.34 pounds of rat. .

CREAM IN HOT WEATHER. Hoards Hturymaii say,s:—In order to mako good butter in the summer it is necessary to take tlio very best of oare of cream while it is being saved for a churning. Neglect to do this is per haps one of the chief causes of poor butter in the summer. flutter from properly kept and ripened oream will liavo a more desirable flavor, it will liecp sweet longer, and bring a high er prico in any market. ' Naturally, tho first essential is to lakh proper care of the milk in Olio stable and separating room. It must bo kept away from undesirable odours, if taints are not wanted in the but ter. .

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914

POULTRY NOTES. It is surprising more poultry-keepers do not keep a well-filled, dust bath, which is the best of all cures against insect troubles. . It is little trouble or expense; Dry earth or road dust, to a depth of 9iu. to 12in., in Vdeep box, kept in a dry, sheltered, position, is all that is required. A JittJo pow dered sulphur should be added oecas sionally, whilst carbolio powder is very useful in bad cases. Some hens are so infested with insect life, through neglect of the dust bath, that it is sometimes necessary to dip them bodily in a bath made of a decootion of quassa chips and tobacco water, afterwards I placing in .a warm coop to dry. Such insect troubles are generally confined i to fowls which cannot have their, liberty and are kept in too oloso quarters, as I poultry running on fields will find their j dust bath under hedges and other places. Prevention is hotter "thaii cure, and whether young or old, fowls kept in confinement must have a dust bath, 'or parasites w...

FERTILISER TERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914

FERTILISER TERMS. Ill the minds of farmers who have little time to study the technicalities of nomenclature, confusion may easily arise as to the precise meaning of the different names under which phosphate of.lime is offered for agricultural pur poses. Thero are four forms of plios iphato of lime:—1. .Soluble in water, as iu superphosphate. It is mono-caioic namely, "one equivalent of phophorie acid, is combined v.-ith one equivalent of lime, and when phosphate of lime is described as "soluble," it is understood by long custom and usance in the trade to mean "soluble in water." This is recognised by the. Fertilisers and Feed ing Stuffs Act, beoauso in Section 10, (1), we find the words, "The expres sions 'soluble and insoluble' shall res pectively mean soluble and insoluble in water," and if the phosphato of jime -is not soluble in wafer, but in citric acid, it should be so specified. 2.

MEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. The shortsighted policy of indiscrim inate slsujgbter of likely hulls and cows in Argentina, says a South Amerioan authority, has resulted in a state of affairs that will ho nothing short ot a national disaster" unless legislation is brought into force to preserve some remnant of the once, extensive herds. In the month of February last, 32,91)3 head of cattle were slaughtered. OF these, 15,406 were cows. It is now necessary for Argentina cattle breeders to replenish their diminished stook. Very recently 20,000 head of cattle were ; driven on to Argentina soil from Para- j guay. The price of meat is steadily' rising day by day, and some of tho rural markets of tho province of Buenos Ayres are actually displaying horse flesh for sale. The shortage of meat which is being felt in Argentina is sfi- I mutating enterprise in other districts I and nations, and soon Argentina mr.y j find her unknown competitors her s,"x- | (essful rivals. - j
