BEHAVIOUR UNDER CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 23 March 1928
BEHAVIOUR UNDER CULTIVA- "| ;TI OIM ! •;..! !' « 'jj.^1 The peculiar habits o£ the weed en able it to withstand cultivation meth ods adopted in the Riverlna.. Once the plants become well established they are most difficult to eradicate. Even when the land is ploughed to a depth of 14 or 5 inches, new shoots are sent up from the original root. ■Even frequent deep summer cultiva tions of the fallow, although they des troy arid'prevent top growth, do not kill the; plant, and when the'■ wheat crop is sown, shoots are quickly sent up' from the root and tlie skeleton' weed grows as quickly, if not quicker than the wheat. The weed exerts a powerful influ ence on wheat or oats growing in its vicinity,, and although the plants are frequently- not sufficiently numerous to choke all wheat growth, any wheat plants that do not survive are extrem ely weak and sickly, due apperently to some influence other than mere physical effect of mild crowding.
HOW THE WEED IS SPREAD [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 23 March 1928
HOW THE WEED IS SPREAD ' Although seeds are produced under field conditions, they are not the chief cause of the spread of skeleton weed. Seedlings are apperently des troyed by ordinary fallowing methods but once the roots become well es tablished and penetrate to the lower levels of the soil even long summer fallowing, including frequent summer cultivations, will not destroy the weed It is spread chiefly by farm imple ments-ploughs, disc , or springtooth cultivators, and even harrows breaK the root stocks, drag them along, an&lt;l iransplant them elsewhere in a paddock. That this is the chief means of spreading the weed is indicated, by instances, occurring in. long, narrow paddocks, where one side of the pac dock is free from the weed, while the other side is heavily infested. In these paddocks, all the cultivations have been in the same direction (length wise with the paddock), and the weed has been spread right along one side by the implements. . It can be readily unders...
