General Notes. SUCCESSFUL CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

General Notes. SUCCESSFUL CROPS. THE Manager will be glad if any settler achieving distinct success with a particular crop will let him have a few remarks for publication in the Record in connec tion with the matter. It is felt that more good can be done by the publica tion of actual results obtained than by double the amount of theory. Several promises have been made by settlers to let the Manager have information of this kind for the next issue of the Record, but it is impossible to have too much of a good thing. # * * CAPITAL REQUIRED TO WORK AN IRRIGATION FARM. In the issue of the Record published on the 1st December last there appeared a full theoretical statement of the amount of capital which a settler should have in his possession on taking up a 50-acro irrigation farm which he intended to de vote to fruit and lucerne growing, using dairying as a pot boiler until his fruit and lucerne returned sufficient to keep him going. Settlers generally were asked to communicate with th...

What's in a Name? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

What's in a Name? A correspondent unburdens his soul of the following: "What's in a name?77 a problem oft propounded, a stupid riddle, confusion worse confounded.^ In regard to names I think that Mir rool is particularly unfortunate. Mirrool itself is a nice comfortable , sort of name-rolls nice and easy off one's tongue. Nobody worries about whether there is anything in it or not, and all are unanimous in wanting to stick to it, but, alas! a near neighbour already has it tacked 011 to his front gate, and, for us to hang out the same sign, will only bother the postman. Griffith-nobody likes, although in this case there c.ertainly does appear to be something in it-but the dislike is not due to any particular ingre.dient either apparent or imaginary, but rather to its awkward enunciation. Instead of rolling easily off one's tongue it gets tangled up in one's front teeth, and one is in constant terror of losing certain "little bits of gold infilled." The funny part of the business is t...

Instructions to Settlers. (Continued.) GENERAL FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

Instructions to Settlers. (Continued.) GENERAL FARMING. Millet.-Several of the .settlers on the area have crops of broom millet In some cases they look very weJl indeed. Settlers with broom millet should bear in mind that the keeping' of the brush straight is a most important item. To do this the heads should be bent down about 12in. below the junc ture of the brush with the stalk. If the plant be .strong it is preferable to give the istalk a double bend, the second bend being 3in. or 4in. below the first. This allows the head to hang down in an abso lutely perpendicular position. In order to bend the whole crop it may be neces sary to go over it on two or three occa sions as the. individual heads do not all mature at the same time. The heads should be bent when the grain is filling out and itis weight is causing the head to spread. If properly done the bending operation will not interfere with the proper maturing of the grain, which is a rather important consideration, as mil let s...

Experiment Plots. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

Experiment Plots. (Continued from last issue.) SOME of the maize. experiments were re ferred to in last issue. Owing to lack of space it was not practicable to print the whole of the information gleaned from Mr. Pinn. The balance of the notes are, however, printed below. MAIZE FOR GRAIN. Mr. A. McLOONE, Farm No. 285. The seed here, was sown on the 23rd December last, the soil being a medium loam. The main experiment was made with Boone County Special. One plot was left unmanured, one treated with Ml mixture, and another with M5. Other varieties, such as Early Learning, Early Yellow Dent, Funk's Yellow Dent, and. Hickory King were also planted, but not in the regulation plots. Their de velopment will, however, be interesting. Mr. McLoone's maize is doing excep tionally well, manured plots showing to advantage over unmanured. * # * LUCERNE TOP DRESSING. A fairly comprehensive experiment in lucerne top dressing was carried out at Messrs. Taylor and Hawkins' Farm No. 67, Leeton. The plo...

ORDERS FOR GRAPE VINES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

ORDERS FOR GRAPE VINES. It has been decided to supply settlers with vine cuttings on the same terms as rooted vines, that is to say, one-third down and the balance in two yearly pay ments with interest added. The Manager desires that settlers should make appli cation for what they require with the least possible delay, as he wishes to be in a position to place the necessary orders for the season's requirements. Judging by the success achieved at Mir r< ol by Mr. McWilliams, it will pay set tlers to plant cuttings. In fact, the Manager thinks that the best results would be obtained by putting them in exactly where they are intended to be grown. To insure success two cuttings should be placed in each position; if thsv both strike, it is easy to remove one of them at a later date. There have b'een exceptionally few misses with . Mr. Mc William's cuttings at Mirrool. . Splendid results were obtained with the cuttings' imported from South Australia last year. They were nicely ...

TOMATOES FOR PULPING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

TOMATOES FOR PULPING. The attention of settlers is drawn to the fact that in many instances, the tomatoes being delivered at the cannery at Petersham are green. In order that the best possible results may be obtained by those owning the tomatoes, it is ab solutely necessary that all tomatoes in tended for pulping be delivered fully ripe and free from all green tags, otherwise the pulp is very inferior.

MARKETING BROOM MILLET. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

MARKETING BROOM MILLET. This is a matter which affects a number of settlers on the Area at the present time. The following notes, which have been kindly supplied by P. J. Moys, of Sussex street, Sydney, one of the principal deal ers in broom millet, will, therefore, be of interest: Drying".-To bring top market prices, broom millet must be thoroughly dry, but the fibre should still retain a good! green colour. If care has been taken in drying the millet under shade and protecting it from rain or heavy dews, there should be no trouble in this regard, and all that remains is to hackle it carefully and put it up in well-bound or pressed bundles or bales of convenient size Pressing.-There is no bundle or bale particularly fancied by Sydney buyers. All that is necessary is that the package must be so firmly bound that it will carry in tact and stand the usual amount of hand ling which storage at the factory or store entails. Bundles weighing only a few pounds are frequently seen, while it...

Light and Power. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

Light and Power. Light! more light! is the cry of our modern divines. Two churches in Leeton are now fitted with electric light, and we trust that other churches, as they are completed, will follow in their steps. The superiority, safety and convenience of tliis [ light over every other form of artificial illumination in churches need no dis cussion. vJ -x* During the past month there has been a growing demand for electric supply for lighting purposes. "Everything has its day," and the day (or perhaps, better, the night) of the kerosene lamp is rapidly pass ing at Leeton. Intending customers should apply early, as the applications will be taken in order of date as far as possible, when the supply mains are handy-of course, that is the big consideration. Several supply mains are now available. People building houses should apply for I the light early, to allow contractors to fix; the electric fittings while the house is un der construction. Settlers near the existing mains may also a...

Mirrool (Murrumbidgee) negationists' Association. A GOOD PAPER ON VEGETABLE GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

Mirrool (Murrumbidgee) I negationists' Associa tion. A GOOD PAPER ON VEGETABLE GROWING. A special meeting of settlers was held on Saturday night, February 21st, to con sider the proposal to establish a cannery for vegetables. Mr. H. A. Crase, who has had large experience in vegetable growing in South Australia, read a very interest ing paper. He confessed that it was difficult for growers from other parts to adapt them selves to the new conditions obtaining on this area, and he could not yet pose as an authority on the subject, as applied to Mirrool. It was for every man to observe closely the conditions of soil, grade, etc., on his own particular block. A first-class soil, was not essential, for the best results were often obtained from comparatively poor soil, the deficiency in the latter be ing more than balanced by a more intense and more constant cultivation; better a poor soil and abundant human energy, than a rich soil and careless methods. About the biggest factor in success...

YANCO SCHOOL OF ARTS. Residents of Yanco at last have the convenience of a School of Arts as well as a hall for concerts, meetings, and social functions. Some time ago the Commis sioner decided, on the recommendation of the Manager, to erect a suitable build ing for the School of Arts Committee, and to rent it to them for a term of years, the lease to provide inter alia that all monies obtained by the Committee from the use of the hall were to be spent on the up-keep of the building, its im provement, provision of library, etc. The building was formally opened on the 12th instant with a social which was largely attended. If space permits refer ence will be made to the matter next issue.

Vegetable Growing [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

The Manager recently sent two of his staff to Victoria with a view to inquiring into the methods of successful vegetable growers in the Goulburn Valley. Gener ally speaking the investigation did not re sult in the gathering of information of very great benefit to the Settlement, as very little vegetable growing on a large scale is being done in the Goulburn Val ley. The biggest of the vegetable growers on each Settlement were, however, inter viewed, and a report regarding these in terviews will be found attached hereto. Most of the growing is done for the fresh vegetable market. In only one case is there a canning plant in operation. That is a privately owned one by Mr. T. Cake bread, of the Naneela Settlement, Ro chester District. He is, however, mainly experimenting up to the present, and it will be seen by the report that his. opera tions have not been entirely successful. He was, however, very good in giving the interviewers all the information he pos sibly could. One point that...

PERCOLATION OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 March 1914

PERCOLATION OF WATER. In the mid-February number of the "Record," in the instruction article, set tlers were advised to sink a hole in the ground after irrigating, to ascertain to what depth the water actually percolated. It has been pointed out. that the form in which the advice was given was crude, and a suggestion has been made that the statement should be amplified. The idea of course is for samples of the soil at various depths to be taken both before and after watering, in order to ascertain the percentage of moisture therein. Mr. T. D. Williams has done a lot of this work by boring with an ordinary sized auger, and the results he has attained are ex tremely interesting. An article on the subject will be published in a later issue of the "Record," and full particulars will be given as to the most satisfactory way of carrying out such tests.
