Electric Light and Power for the Area. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Electric Light and Power for the Area. THE convenience, cleanliness and safety of electricity for lighting and power will no doubt be appreciated by the business people and settlers on these areas.

Tobacco Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Tobacco Growing. By ALB. GORNITJZKA, The flower buds on the tobacco plants on the area will soon begin to make their appearance. These and about three of the upper leaves should be nipped off, leaving an average of 18 leaves on a plant; this is called "topping," and "priming"-that is, removal of the ground damaged and broken bottom leaves-should be done at the same .time. # # * The object of these operations is to retain only such number of good leaves on each plant as it cai) thoroughly de velop and mature. The sap that would otherwise have gone towards the growth of the flowers and maturing of unsound leaves is thus used in enriching the sound marketable leaves. #4L X IP W Strong, vigorous plants are topped high and given more leaves to develop than the less vigorous plants. Ji W TP As soon as the plant is topped, or even before, small shoots. or suckers start to grow from the axils of all the leaves; if these suckers should be. allowed to grow they would lessen 'the weight of the...

Agricultural Work. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Agricultural Work. Owing to the amount of development which has taken place on the Yanco section of the settlement, the. Manager is of opinion that a change should be made in regard to the carrying out of agricultural work for settlers. Up to the present time the Manager has con sidered it obligatory upon him to carry out any work for which application is made., seeing that the pamphlets, &c., issued by the Commissioner state dis tinctly that agricultural work will be done for settlers. As far as the Yanco Area is concerned, it is . hereby notified that this statement is not to apply; in future no guarantee will be. given. If agricultural work can be carried out by the Commissioner's teams at a reasonable cost, and settlers wish it to be done, the work will be put in hand, but if, owing to the travelling time involved and other circumstances, the work, if carried out by the Commissioner, would be in ordinately expensive, it would not be done. This is, of course, in the Com m...

The population of the world is increasing, and the consumption of products of the soil is correspondingly increasing.

Vegetable Growing under Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

, - Vegetable Growing under Irrigation. By C. BRAITHWAITE. (Paper read before the Leeton Branch, . N.S.W. Agricultural Bureau.) VEGETABLE growing is a wide subject, and. it is scarcely possible to deal with each detail in a paper of this , kind. I will endeavour, however, to touch on the different points of vegetable growing that seem to me as being of the most in terest to members of this Bureau. The finst thing to be considered is the suita bility of the soil for vegetable growing;' While all soils on this area could be suc cessfully used for the production of some vegetables, they are not all suitable for all vegetables. The soils on this area may be divided into three distinct classes, namely-light, medium, and heavy. The deep, sandy soils may be called light, the heavier loam soils of not less than 6in. in depth may be classed as medium, and the soils with the clay closer to the sur face may be said to be heavy. * # * ' The first aim of the settler who pro poses to go in for ve...

Irrigation in Other Lands [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Irrigation in Other Lands Mr. W. J. Allen, of the Department of Agriculture gave some information to the Irrigation Record relative to his tour among the irrigation countries in several parts of the world. Mr. Allen was in structed by the Minister (Mr. Trefle) to (secure some jacks and jennets of the best type for breeding mules in New South Wales. The experience with mules has been very satisfactory wherever they have been used in this State, and they have been found tractable and handy for orchard cultivation. With a view of im proving the strain of turkeiys in thle State Mr. Allen was also instructed to have sent to the Department the best gobblers procurable. He made inquiries as to the best kind of grasses calculated to suit the stiffer soils of the irrigation areas. # * m Mr. Allen visited the Calgary Irriga tion Settlements in Canada, and. those of Southern California, including the famous Imperial Valley.

The Beef War. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

The Beef War. " . . n .1 -4 . If J. The operations of the American Meat Packing' Companies in the chief meat pro ducing countries of the world and the attention they are directing to Australia as a field for further^exploitation is caus ing some * misgiving among stockowners in this country. Apropos of the move ment of these enterprising corporations is an instructive article by Mr. Raymond G. Carroll in the Country Gentleman. He says that:-"Instead of heaping in vectives upon the Chicago meat packers for their foreign trade extensions it might be a good idea first to propel some daylight into how they have gone about capturing the world's foreign meat market," said a distinguished American banker very re cently. # * # "You will find," he added, "that the so-called American Beef Trust, trading in the names of two great Argentine ex port companies, which they bought for £7,000,000, has opened its fight in South America by smashing a copper-rivetted combine of British controlled frigo...

Farm Designs. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Farm Designs. The attention of settlers generally is drawn to the fact that, up to the present time, very fewf, applications have been made for farm designs. The Designing Engineer is now getting rather anxious about this matter, as he anticipates a rush during the coming autumn. This will be very unsatisfactory, both from the point of view of the management and of the settlers themselves, since a number of the farm designs will undoubtedly be de layed. It is just as easy to put the matter of the designs in hand at the pre sent time as at any later period of the year, provided the contours have been taken. Settlers are aware that in the case of most of the farms on the Yanco Area this work has been carried out. In the circumstances, therefore, the Mana ger would urge settlers requiring their farms designed to submit their applica tions with the least possible delay in order that the work may be evenly, spread over a lengthy period rather "than rushed through during the autumn months...

Long Pruning of Peach Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 February 1914

Long Pruning of Peach Trees. Mr. Alex. Smith, of Dungog, N.S.W., writing to the Murray Pioneer, states: As I had previously read something about long pruning, and ab I had some one-year and two-year-old seedling peach trees, I thought I would try to put the little knowledge of the subject I had into prac tice. Then along came the Irrigation Record which had a precis of your leaflet, and then I thought I'd try my hand. .jit <M» w ^ if I merely thinned out the laterals, and although my trees are fully exposed to the westerly wind, and this, I think, is one of the windiest spots on earth, the long pruned seedling trees are carrying good ciops and have not a single limb broken by the furious winds that come here to play in summer amongst my fruit trees. id# vj/ ^ TP I have a fair number of worked trees which are pruned short and cut back well, and many limbs have been snapped off them. I intend to try long pruning on some of them next year. # # I would like to know if any sum...
