HOW TO GET RID OF STUMPS. EFFECT OF POWERFUL ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 March 1914
HOW TO GET RID OF STUMPS. EFFECT OF POWERFUL, ACIDS. A farmer 1ms hit upon an clTuo tive method of getting rid of slumps with the aid of a mixture of sulphuric acid and nitric acid. In treating a stump 3ft. (iin. in diameter GrJ. . worth of acids were put . in an augur hole, and in five weeks'.-time the whole stump and roots hud so rotted that they could be knocked to pieces with a hoe. A stump lift. in diamctor would take about half a pint euch of the acids and a smaller -stump Jess. The acids arc used in equal quantities, und are «iot diluted in any way. A hole is bored into Urn stump with a 2-inch augur,', deep enough to hold, the- . quantity; of acids to be used, and then one ncid is poured in und the other added. The hole is then plugged . air-i ight. with a . wooden plug. ' ./ - It was considered -*thal . perhaps there might. be some danger in mix ing the-two acids, and a report was obtained from the chemist at tached to the Department of Agri* culture regarding the question. ...

LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 March 1914
LUCERNE. Lucerne is talked of more than ever now at our dairy meetings. It is a I well km own fact thnt it furnishes the cheapest source of protein of any roughage grown, one thing strongly emphasized by the experts is that it will not start under the ordinary conditions usually given other crops by farmers. Qti^tc contrary to the prevalent opinion, it needs, a rich, sweet, thoroughly cultivated, well drained soil at the beginning.. When once started it has been found to be one of the easiest crops to grow ever known. After a Held is well set it does not require as much care, and as one farmer said at a recent meet ing, "the more you abuse Jt then. the better it does." -"Jersey Builc tin." 1918. |

APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 March 1914
APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. One important feature in the skilful" uso of artificials is the proper sea son of the year to apply them (re marks the "North British Agricul turist"), This point has far greater significance than most farmers com monly imagine. Especially is this true in the ease ot kainit and potash manure salts, where success or failure may depend on tho season of applica tion. Kainit is a very useful manure if applied at the right time. If ap plied at the wrong time, it may ho thrown away as far ns the crop in question is concerned ; it might even he hurtful to some crops if used at a wrong time. The results of a large number of experiments conducted on the Con tinent and in Great Britain give valuable information on this point. The majority of them point to the advantages of early application of kainit and potash salts, that is, au tumn or winter application.
