SAWDUST AS A MULCH. Of Doubtful Value. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 6 January 1915

SAWDUST AS a MULCH. Of Doubtful Value. A Wyoiig correspondent who had just planted out 800 tVtiit trees, and who I was in a position 'to obtain considerable quantities of sawdust, recently asked whether it would bo advisable to use it cither us a fertiliser or as a mulch. In reply, tho Chemist of the Depart ment stated that sawdust is of little or uo value as a direct fertiliser. Its chief yuIuc is in forming a mulch and prevent ing undue evaporation of water from the surface soil. It should bo of benefit if lightly dug in around tho trunks of iruit trees, or it may be cpuveniently used to absorb liquid manure, urine, etc. If it is placed in large hqaps it will des troy vegetation by exeluuu g ligut and air froin flic ground, which will thuB bo rendered sour. Sawdust is alBO full of eggs of certain insects; whioh develop under favorable conditions, and may damage the crop. From what little experience tho De partment has had with sawdust as a uressiug, it. is not in a position to re ...

THE ORCHARD. SIZE, COLOR AND QUALITY. As Factors in Values. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 6 January 1915

THE ORCHARD. SIZE, COLOR AND QUALITY. As Factors in Values. In the course of au address before tho Culifomiun Kruit Growers 1 Convention, Mr. I*. 1*. lledrick, an officer of tho New York experiment statiou, had something suggestive to say about size, rotor and quality iu fruit, two points oi view — the requirements of the public am! the response of the grower—being stated. The Over-estimation of Size. The clamor about sizo has gone on for so long that it is much ovorosti mated as au indication of true quality, but while for most kitchen purposes fair or large sizo is distinctly meritor ious, for all dessert purposes the modiuril sized fruit should bo preferred. Not always, but often, undue size is accompanied by inferior quality, in which condition there is also, of course, a loss in value. Some varieties of tree fruits can be increased in size to advantage, and it then becomes a matter of importance to know how, should it be desirable. The task is not difficult. 'Gonerally speaking...

ASH CONCRETE. Where it is Useful. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 6 January 1915

ASH CONCRETE. Whero it is UrtTul. For many classes of work, such as small farms buildings, cottages, floors, surface drains, etc., heavy concroto is not necessary, aud for such purposes there are other materials that are quite suitable. Amongst these, says the Works Ovorseer of tho Depart ment of Agriculture, is tho ash from eoke ovens, gasworks, locomotive sheds ami the Tike. These ashes aro usually regarded as a waste product, but several buildings that have bceu orectod ou various experiment farms indicate that they may have a distinct utility, and may be caiployed with advantage in the erection of buildings. The suggestions of the Overseer may therefore prove of cousidorablo interest to farmers, aud the method outlinod in :iu articlo that appears in the December nnd Janunry issues of tho ** Agricultural Gazette' will bo found usoful, whilo tho plans and tho sectioual drawings will mnkc the erection of a building with the material a comparatively simple ninttcr.
