CHANGE THE SEED. VIEWS OF THE AGRICULTURAL SUPERINTENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 February 1914

CHANGE THE 8EED. VIEWS OF THE AGRICULTURAL SUPERINTENDENT. In his report on the Nhill farm competitions, Mr. A. E. V. Ricnard son, M.A., B.Sc., Agricultural Super intendent, says, vide the "Journal of Agriculture": The improvements wrouight in our system of farming during the past decade have aimed at making soil conditions more suited to the plant's needs, but little has been done in the systematic improvement of the wheat plant itself, though the possi. bilities in this direction are enormous: There has been a too-feverish desire shown to change the seed from one locality and one farm to another, in the hope that some slight improvement might be brought about. But how can this indiscriminate changing of seed result in any improvement, more especially. if the' farmer secures the seed from onie who is equally care. less as himself in respect to the selection of seed?. Changes of seed may in special circumstances be some times of value, but in the generality of cases it is very undes...

There is so much prelimi. nary work to be done in connection with the preparation of regulations, and the 'organisation of -the proposed State insuranee office, that it is unlike. ly that the proclamation bringing the law into force will be gazetted for two or three months. The new system provides for the appointment of a Government insur ance department, under the charge of a commissioner, to issue policies to employers indemnifying them against their liability for accidents to their employees under the Workers' Com pensation Act,' for any other act, or at common law. This office will com pete on equal terms with private companies and societies, and wi...
