AGRICULTURAL BUREAUX. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

AGRICULTURAL BUREAUX. The scheme being run by the De partment of Agriculture, to establish bureaux throughout the rural dis tricts, should appeal to members , of the association. The idea of prac tical men swopping views is a real good one, and bound to prove useful. Naturally the Department has solici ted the help of our branches in this matter, and we think it would be a good tiling for all parties to co-ope rate. Jt does jwt interfere with the ordinary business and purpose of the Association, and should have the very desirable effect, as far as that goes, of bringing members into touch with outsiders, and",particularly the young fellows who may be outside our ranks. The advantage of visits and lectures from competent experts is obvious, and alone merits the pro ject being well taken up. We .can not hide the, fact from ourselves 'that we nail have a, lot to learn one way. and another, and it is good business making the most of chances that come \ along.

The Market Mirror WOOL. CLEARING-UP CATALOGUES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

-£> CL The Market Mirror .r>) WOOL. CLEARING-UP CATALOGUES. There arc now only four more sell ing days to close the Sydney weekly selling season for the current statis tical wool year. As a number of selling brokers had almost cleared ?tip tlieir stocks, and as two or three other firms had rather more wool in store than could have been included in their catalogues had they offered as per roster, the order of sales was re vised 011 Friday last for the week now closing, and for the sales next week -which close tlie weekly series of auctions in the Sydney market. The offerings this week were neces sarily of a clearing-up character. Quite a number of lines in the cata logues were lots passed in at previous sales. Consequently, there was not the same uniformity in the selections, nor were they generally up to the standard of the few previous weeks, ?when some very high-class wools were presented to buyers. Some of the catalogues this week comprised a number of nice 3STew England wo...

What may be regarded as the first of a series of meetings to be addressed by members of the executive and other prominent members of the l<'armers and Settlers' Association throughout the State was held under the auspices of the Kiverina District Council in Wagga last week. Mr. G. K. Trethowan, of Clear Hills, was the speaker, and to an ap preciative audience he explained that the association was going ahead by leaps and bounds, and had made more progress during the last two years than it had made in the preceding six or eight years. They had taken the precaution ol registering the as sociation as a union, a non-trading company, which would place them in a better position for various pur poses. Being registered, the mem bers all became shareholders in a limited liability undertaking. That was not a matter, however, which slioxild cause them any alarm, as their liability .was confined to the amount of one shilling ...

MISCELLANEOUS. A motion "was carried by the Nyn gan branch,-"That the Minister be asked to expedite the throwing open ' for settlement of any lands in the district which may be resumed from scrub leases." The Nyngan branch read a letter from the Department of Lands, stat ing that the request to have resumed all improvement leases and all scrub leases, would be dealt with when the general question of such matters was being considered. Milltliorpe branch decided to press for legislation to prevent potatoes from the blight infected areas from being sent into clean districts, and to prohibit the sale of second-hand bugs in clean districts.

ORGANISING FUND. At t-lie annual meeting of Wyalong and district branch, the president, referring to the organisation fund, repeated his offer of contributing x,i 10s., if the branch would raise an equal amount. He mentioned "The Land," and urged all members, not only to subscribe, but to induce others to do likewise. Mr. A. G. Manning said he would give £1. He also mov ed that the subscription fee for the year should be £1. Some members thought that it would be the means of driving away members. The fact that the members of the A.W.U. pay £1 was pointed out, and the mem bers argued that if "the farmer is the backbone of the country" surely he can pay the same amount as the labourer whom he employs. The mo tion was carried, and all present either paid up, or signified their intention of so doing.

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

NOTES. Mr. T. Wortliiiigton, Orange Grove, Newtown, tells the1" "Orange Liberal" that the early iriiit crops, su,ch as peaches, ' plums, etc., have he en brought on very fast by the recent heavy rains. Oranges.and other citrus fruits, however, have benefited ma terially by the rain, and there is go ing to be a heavy crop, of fine qua lity. The vicissitudes of the orchard ist are as numerous as those of all other primary producers, but this year they at least should have a pro fitable return from citrus fruits. . Mr. A. .1. Wenke, of Date Palm Hill, Walla Walla, expects to secure a re cord crop of currants and raisins this season. The crop will be ready for gathering next month. Not only is Mr. Wenke the pioneer of raisin growing in this part of the State (?says the "Albviry -Banner") b.ut, is a believer in intense culture. He raises on his fine property nearly all the foodstuffs required, for domestic use at his homestead. Those interested in the drying of figs may be ghid to know ....

RIVAL ORANGERIES. Parramatta v. Burrum. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

RIVAL ORANGERIES. Parramatta v. Burrum. A.P.C. in "The Queenslander" writes: - Time was when the name Parra matta was sufficient guarantee to the Australian public for oranges of the best quality. Times are changed. Trade's unfeeling train has robbed Parramatta, and conferred the honour oil Queensland. Nowadays, in the Melbourne mar ket, you hear of the "Mellyboller" instead of the "Palleymatter" orange, and Chinese traders, who largely con trol the southern fruit markets, have allocated the honour to Maryborough. To be precise, the Mellyboller orange is not grown at Maryborough at all; it is grown in localities five, ten, 18, and (in the case of Gayndah), 90 miles therefrom. However, the same objection ap plied to the use of the word Parra matta, for that orange was grown at Baulkham Hills, Pennant Hills, Dural, and Ryde; all some distance from historic Parramatta, which, however, was the nearest town to these once famous citrus - producing centres. Moreover, the Parramatta. river ...

NETTING OVER A VINEYARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

NETTING OVER A VINEYARD. Experiments have proved that grapes will grow almost anywhere' in the western district if the birds will let them. But the trouble is that the birds will persistently eat the ber ries as soon as any are found ripen ing. Just now. at the experimental farm, Wagga, a scheme for besting the birds is about to be tried, with no doubt of its thorough success. About half-an-acre of vineyard is to be covered over with wire-netting of IViin. mesh, and high enough to per mit of horses working underneath it. To the trellis posts, which are about 10 feet apart, will be aflixed uprights to support the wire-netting, about seyen .of. eight feet from the ground, and this will cost at the rate of £80 per acre. But where trellis has not already been provided, the cost would be from £12 to £20 more, ac cording to the distance the timber would have to be hauled. When the trellis posts are eight feet apart, and 10 feet between the rows, about 544 stakes are required to the acre. ...

Orchard Notes. SUMMER GRASS AND WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

Orchard Notes. SUiuMER GRASS AND WEEDS. J^uring the past few weeks, the grower' has been unable to get on the ground with the horse teams, consequently the summer grass and weeds have in many cases grown too strong, for the cultivator to destroy, .?anid; ploughing" ' will "be ' necessary. This material can be more conveni ently. turned under if the harrows are run over the land first. It is, however, not always advisable to turn under such a bulk of green vege table matter, for not only will the grass seeds be buried, but the mate rial. may not decay in time to sow Autumn crops. In many cases it will be better to mow the summer grass before ploughing. Where a mowing machine is obtainable, a strip can easily be cut down each side of the young trees, where the .growtn is generally the thickest. Un fortunately, on most orchards, a ,.ipjp;vy.ii.)g, machine is a,s scarce i^s a .spray pump on a wheat farm, in most cases the scythe will have to be used. The material can be made into hay, w...
