Labour for the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

Labour for the Farm. The Leader, in referring to tlie demands of the Rural Workers' Union in New South Wales, says, inter alia, that there are among the farmers those who have their one, two or three men in their employment permanently all the year round at wages, housing and board alike satisfactory to employer and employee. If the union schedule, by creating such a capable class of farm labour as the farmer finds it profitable to pay good wages to, then it will effect a beneficial revolution; but putting up useless men to strike for competent men's wages is not going to bring this about. The great bulk of the labour required in Riverina, which has been selected as the centre? of the present strike, is 011 the wheat farms, and as far as they are con cerned preparatory steps are already be ing taken. Tlie most experienced men are already acting on the principle of "less grain and more sheep." Sheep, along with the grain, takes less labour, and brings in quite as much money. On a far...

A Field Ditch. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

A Field Ditch. This is the type of, ditch which carries the water through certain sections of the field. The proper location of the ditches . are determined by a, dumpy level. The grade of the ditch varies with the soil. It should not be steep enough to allow the water to cut out the bottom, and where ditches must be run down slopes, checks, and drops should be put in rather than having all the stops in the ditch. Where the field ditches are run across the slope they should be as nearly level as possible and carry the water when checked up for that purpose so it may flow evenly over the bank of the ditch, or through the- sluices as shown elsewhere, on to the land. The usual slopes are IV2 to 6 inches per 100 feet, de pending upon the class of soil. Heavy soils will permit. of more slope or fall than lighter ones. The field ditches running across the slope are placed at more 01* less regular intervals of 150 to 400 feet, according to the slope and nature of the soil. On light, sandy ...

Irrigation in other Places [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

Irrigation in other Places SOME interesting notes are made by "Steele Blayde," in the Mildura Cultiva tor regarding the irrigation settlement of Curlwaa, on the Murray. Among other tilings the writer says:-"From the Curl waa pump the route was first along the main channel by several little blocks, in cluding that of the St. Leon's, of circus fame, thence inward through the settle ment to Mr. S. P. Taylor's comfortable home. Mr. Taylor, besides growing fruit, grows lucerne. It was mainly to see lucerne I Avent to Curlwaa; not every day does one wade into crop all 3ft. 6in. high, uniform of growth and clean. Mr. Taylor telis me that he gets six good cuts -about 1% tons to the ace per cut a year, and could get eight cuts if the waterings allowed, and Mr. Lush, who sowed the crop, informs me that the seed was sown on virgin box land, not at all well prepared. What, then, is the secret of such a magnificent stand ? One can only attribute the splendid growth to the depth of the soil which...

Advisory Board. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

Advisory Board. A MEETING of the Advisory Board was held at the Commissioner's Office, Lee ton, on December 16th. Present: Messrs. J. B. Broatch (Chairman), Nulty, W. J. Williams, Gornitzka, Wliitcombe, Monk, Ferguson, Braithwaite, Quodling, Fackeri der, McEachern, Herbert, Dr. Smith, Pike, and C. F. Chaplin (Secretary). IRRIGATING LUCERNE. Mr. Whitcombe said that as there would be a large area of lucerne planted next autumn he thought it desirable to hear something from the Commissioner's In structors as to whether irrigating' lucerne by furrowing or flooding was the better practice. He believed there was a differ ence of opinion in this matter, and he would like to hear a discussion regarding it. Mr. McEachern (Chief Instructor) said he had always advocated the furrow system. Lucerne seed was small. Flood ing caused most of the soils on this area to set closely, with the result that the air spaces in the soil were closed and the germinating power of the seed re tarded. When furrow...

Irrigation IRecorb. Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.8.W. THE experience in other irrigation settle ments working- practically under similar conditions to ours is, to some extent, a valuable guide. The reports of inspectors under the Victorian Water Supply Com mission show that many settlers dairying on the irrigation areas of Victoria have not grown enough feed for their cattle, with the result that at some seasons of the year their dairy cows are half starved. This undesirable and unnecessary state of affairs is due, it is pointed out, to lack of cultivation and of planning to provide a succession of crops for at least six months ahead. & :Ji # The settler who follows dairying is ad vised to provide a variety of food for his cows to whet their appetite and give a balanced ration. Feeding a dairy herd oh lucerne alone ...

This means there will be no more water for irrigation work on this monster Reclamation Ser vice Project for tke remainder of tliis year. It kas since been decided to en large the reservoir for the coming year. # # # "It appears that recently there have been charges made against the Reclama tion Service of extravagance and 'graft' concerning the Salt River Pro ject in Arizona.
