A RECORD VICTORIAN .WHEAT YIELD. The estimate of the wheat crop (states last Saturday's ' Australasian ') indicates that the yield will be far and away greater than was ever previously harvested in the colony. This does not mean that the aver age yield is higher, for it Is not so, and, as a matter of fact, it has been exceeded on several previous occasions, but the area under crop being so large, the aggregate total . has assumed unusual proportion's. This season the yield is expected to be 20,420,000 bushels from 2,000,000 acres, gran average of nearly 10$ bushels per acre.

N. W. FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. The North- Western Farmers' Associa tion, Devonport, reports,' under date Friday, January 20, as follows : — Potatoes.— As deliveries of New South Wales locals have fallen off considerably,' and there has been a good enquiry from Queensland, the market has firmed locally in spite of increased deliveries, and there is every prospect of an active market for some time; with moderate, regular weekly shipments values should be fairly well maintained. Many growers have not yet realised that it is to their disadvantage to grade their pota toes badly. Some consignments have reached us this week -containing quite 10 per cent of pig potatoes. Had they been sent on in that condition the loss would have been quite £2 to £3 per ton. s ? Turnips. — A small trial shipment is going forward this we-ek, but from advices it is still too early to expect satisfactory results, owing to the large, quantity of vegetables still available. \ Wheat. — Nothing doing, as; Nmfllers ar...
