Allora Spring Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 February 1898
Allora Spring Wheat. Much has been said and written with reference to the good and had qualities of Allora Spring wheat— the latter, according to some autho rities preponderating. But tliei'e is indisputable evidence that the wheat is not altogether bad. A local farmer, who harvested a con siderable quantity of Allora Spring wheat this season, in order to satisfy himself of the value of the grain for milling purposes, had a quantity turned into flour for his own use, and lie asserts that the flour pro duced makes equally as good bread as that made from other flour, and he is unable to find any difference. Further, he has disposed of the whole of his surplus crop delivered in Muswellbrook at 3s 9£d per bushel, being full market price for best grain, the buyer being cogni sant of the fact rthat it was AllOra Spring wheat. Under these circum stances our farming friend thinks he is justified in believing that this wheat is not so bad as represented, and he intends to sow a larger area n...
