The Murray Waters. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

The Murray Waters. THE impounding* and utilisation of the Murray and Murrumbidgee river waters have been much discussed by the three States concerned-New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia. The enormous areas drained by these rivers are obvious in noting the country trav ersed. #4£ W W The total navigable length of the Mur ray and its tributaries is 3,212 miles; made up as follows: The Murray, Al bui\y to mouth, 1,366 miles; Murrum bidgee, Gundagai to Murray junction 666 miles; Darling, Walgett to Wentworth, 1,180. #.Y. JL The watershed of the tributaries in Queensland, New South Wales and Vic toria amounts to 414,253 square miles, or 265,000,000 acres equal to nearly one seventh of the total area of Australia. Of this total the contributing area amounts to 158,499 square miles. The rest, though within the catchment area, is non-contributing. # # # The Darling has its source in the Great ?Dividing range in Queensland, where it is known as the Maclntyre.

' A bounty at the rate of 2d. per lb. is payable by the Commonwealth Govern ment on tobacco leaf for the manufacture of cigars, high grade, on satisfactory proof of sale to bona Me purchasers, at a price not less than Is. per lb., or that the tobacco leaf is equal in quality to that usually sold at a price not less than Is. per'lb.

Amounts aggregating £26 3s. 10d., represent ing four claims, have been paid in the State of New South Wale? in this con nection. Seepage at Merbein still troubles some of the settlers. The filling of the old channel and making of a new (which is promised) may stoj3 one bad case and full concreting of existing channels other cases.

Tobacco Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

Tobacco Growing. By ALB. GORNITZKA. lri is now time for the settlers to get as much tobacco in the field as possible, as, no doubt, any planting after 20tli of December will not give as good result as those planted earlier. # # * Cultivation of those plants already in the field should now be done often and well; less water and more cultivation will give the desired result; plenty of water and little cultivation means fail ure. * $ # No set number of times can be given for the cultivation of the field, but it should be done whenever the soil begins to harden or crust over; no other plant will respond so readily to cultivation, nor will the value of any plant be so easily affected by neglect as the tobacco plant; a rapid growth from the time of planting until the ripening period will give that fine even texture so desirable in high-class tobacco. m * # When the plant has commenced to ripen, cultivation should cease, for any further stirring of the soil will tend to induce the second g...

Rents and Water Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

Rents and Water Rates. As there appears to be a misunderstanding in the minds of some of the settlers as to the powers of the Commissioner regarding rents and water rates, he desires to ex plain, in amplification of his verbal state ments that have been made from time to time, that the payment of rent is a statu tory liability under those provisions of the Crown Lands Act which refer to irriga tion farms. These provide that a con dition of the lease shall be payment' of rent. Not only the'Commissioner, but the Auditor-General, lias thus a statutory duty to see that rent is paid in respect of every farm that has been disposed of. A con cession was made to settlers from America that they would have their farms for one year free of rent. In order to meet the terms of this arrangement, a special sum of money has to be voted by Parliament, in: order that the liability in regard to rent may be met in respect of these farms, and paid out of the Consolidated Revenue. It can, therefore, be s...

Vegetable Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 January 1914

Vegetable Growing. Mr. James Street, Farm 220, writing to the Manager in reference to the grow ing of vegetables, says, inter allay that he feels sure that planting vegetables this coming autumn on the area would meet with success. Cauliflowers, cab bages, parsnips, and carrots are among the vegetables that can be produced in payable quantity. "I don't mean a little kitchen garden," he says, "as that can be done anywhere with plenty of manure. Anyone can grow peas in sea son here with ordinary attention, but what I can see of French beans I think it would be a gweat mistake to ask set tlers to plant largely until they know more about producing them here." * # # "It seems peculiar," Mr. Street con tinues, "that peas and lucerne should do so well and French beans look so sick. I produced a small patch very success fully, but the ground was prepared bet lei* than it could possibly be done on a large scale. Plenty of commercial fer tiliser or wood ashes seem to be what the soil requires...

The Use of Malting Barley for Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

The Use of Malting Barley for Hay. A correspondent at Tamworth who had cut a few acres of malting' barley for hay just as it was commencing to ripen, the grain and beard being well formed, and had been told that the beard would not be cut up by the chaff-cutter, and when fed to horses was liable to choke them, asked the Department if this was correct. "A* ?!» S$£ In reply, the Acting Under-Secretary and Director of Agriculture stated that barley of the class referred to should be cut well 011 the green side, as if al lowed to ripen the awns, when fed to horses, would cause irritation and con sequent trouble. Under the circumstances the only safe method would be to thor oughly steam the chaff in order to soften the awns before use.

Irrigation by Pumping. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

Irrigation^ by Pumping. Pumping' for irrigation lias received at tention in America and, in many places, lias proved successful, while in others it lias failed. . Gasoline engines have been the motive, power in many smaller plants, owing to the low first cost and the small amount of attention required in operating. ?' ^ * ; * * Pumping is done from wells sunk into the water-bearing sands and gravels, and consequently only small tracts-40 to 100 acres-can be served. Large acreages can be irrigated from a single plant only where the pumping is done from running streams. * * * In the early days of irrigation, in America (says a report by the U.S. De partment of: Agriculture), it was cheaper to build canals and allow the water to run on to the land than to lift it to the same elevation by mechanical means, but to-day-in the. older settled districts, where all projects that have ? a-cheap, first cost have been constructed and where the value of water rights under them have greatly advanc...
