SOME POINTS ON PLOUGH SHARPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 9 October 1914

SOME POINTS ON PLOUGH SHARPENING. The man on tile farm who has a small blacsksmith's shop of Ii's own must know a few of the fundamentals of shop work before he can malle any use of his shop. There is nothing mere useful to the man who has a small shop than knowing how to shar pen plough lays, for good work can not be done withl a dull or badly shar pened plough. The principal point to rememember in plough work is getting the lay shaped and tempered right. Good work can not be done with 'a lay poorly shaped. A little mistake along this line will increase the draft .and thus increase the power necessaiyrto pull the plough. In sharpening the lay always draw the edge of the share with the face to the anvil making the bevel underneath. Tihe lay should fit the mnould-board as snugly as possible. To toll whether the lay is properly shaped, place it on the floor or bench just as it would rest in the furrow. If the entire cutting edge touches the floor it is set right. The point, of the lay...

APPLYING FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 9 October 1914

APPLYING FERTILISERS. A point oftten considered is whether it is better to apply fertiliser., by drill or brIoadcast, and experiments were car ried out last year by the National Se ciety (of Hunlgarian Agriculturalists to test tho relative advantages of the two methods. The first experiment with barley led to no definite results, as. owing to the heavy rainfall, the crop was badly logg.ld. It was, however, nott edl that a moderate application by drill of superphosphates and nitrate of soda produced no ill effects on the gertmina tion of the seed, and rather stimnulaitd the first development of the younger pIlants. Mfore sucessful result.f were obtain ed witll sugar boOt, manuring in ilhe ldrills lead:ag to better develolmelnt of the crop, an(l while there were no great differenctes in the sugar content of the beets. the yield obtained was greatly in favor of this method.

IS YOUR SOIL SOUR? A SIMPLE TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 9 October 1914

IS YOUR SOIL SOUR? A SIMPLE TEST. (By, S. D. Conner, in "Country Gen tleman.") The soil chemist can make no other test that produces results of such great significance as a test for soi! acidity. Lime in the form of carbon ate exercists such a dominant and beneficial influence on the character of the soil, principally through correction of soil acidity, that a knowledge of its presence or absence is of prime importance in estimating the fertility of a piece of land or planning correct rect:ve treatment. It is not necessary to know how much lime there is in a given piece of land, but it is of fundamental import ance to know the relation of the lime to the amount of acid present. Other things being favorable, an excess of lime means success with lucerne and clover, and a soil of good general fer tility, while an excess of acid means failure with lucerne, clover and other legumes, and a soil of much less sat isfactory general fertility. Fortunately, the test for soil acidity is so simp...
