AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATIONS. PART II. WHAT A STATION SHOULD BE AND DO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATIONS. PFrom Seriboer^ Magari7ie.~\ TabtTL vhat a station should be iusd do. Tti consideration of the value and im portance of such stations, it may be worth ?while to consider briefly the work an Ameri can station should do, the character of the men who .should be placed in charge of it, and the best way of making its results available. All -Qie operations of agricul ture are in the nature of an experiment, and jet it is one of the least exact of all the trades. It is essentially scientific, and jet the majority of farmers are unscientific; the station must therefore be a place of scientific experiment. There are new seeds and new plants imported by the dealers, sad offered at high prices. They may be the best things ever discovered, and they may be mere weeds with high-sounding names — perhaps excellent in their own country, sod of no value in this; or they may be unblushing frauds. The station tries the sew seeds, plants, or fruits under every variety o...

BOTANIC GARDENS REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

BOTANIC GARDENS REPORT. We have already referred in these columns to the interesting and valuable report by Dr. Schomburgk on the Botanic Gardens, and have directed attention to a few of its more important items. There are, however, other topics we have not yet mentioned which aro worthy of considera tion, especially by farmers and other people interested in agricultural pursuits. Fre quently has it been urged upon agricultnriits and owners or lessees of land in large or small quantities not only that it is very desirable but that it is fast becoming absolutely necessary that they should give immediate aud serious atten tion to the cultivation and growth of other products than wheat. The average per acre of wheat appears to be declining from year to year, and it is well known throughout th» colony tbat the returns for several seasons past have over large tracts of country been uny thing but remunerative. It is of course impoMiblo that this condition of things can exist much longer, ...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. From nearly all parts of the colony the gratifying intelligence lias been received that rain has at length come ; in some places the fall amounting to over an inch nearly all of which fell during Sunday night. The average fall during that night amounts to considerably over half an inch, and some pleasant showers have fallen since. This will do an immense amount of good, as it will 6nable the farmers to set their ploughs to work and to get on with their sowing. It is pleasing to read of tanks replenished, water lying about in pools, and ploughs busiiy employed after the repeated complaints of scarcity of water and forced inaction consequent oa dry weather which, have for some time past formed the gist of telegrams and letters from the agri cultural dismctB. Warm showery weather, highly favorable to the carrying on of reasonable farm work and the progress of wheat crops already sown, has been ex perienced in the southern districts of Vic toria ; but in the northern...

CURE FOR AMERICAN BLIGHT. In the following extract from an old magazine, June 9, 1838, Waterton relates his experience as regards killing American blight, or *? bug,' as he calls it, on apple trees. After trying various uxctuous pre parations which availed nothing, he says — ' The application of the spirit of turpentine killed it at once, and for a f«wf!a.iiR nft-Br it had been applied I was in hopes that its exteimitation had been effected, but others Ecou appeared. Despairing of success, I was on tbe point of quitting the field and leaving the bugs in undisturbed possession of it, when L began to conjecture that I bad not gone the right way to work. I reflected that none of my applications could have penetrated sufficiently deep into the curved atd knotty- sinuosities of the dis eesed parts, and that on this account there would be a sufficient force of tbe enemy left alive to recom mence its depredations on the first favor able opportunity. Wherefore I concluded that rothiug short...

HINTS FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

HINTS FOB FARMERS. Keep Off the Mice. — It is said that eucalyptus leaves placed among grain sacks prevent mice from attacking them. Lice in Aniilais. — A pound of coarse tobacco, boiled for 15 or 20 minutes in a gallon of water, and to which, when cool, eight ounces of crude carbolic acid is added, may be kept in a jar as a dressing for these parasites. Three or four applications, at intervals of a couple of days, are necessary is all bad cases, to get rid of the tormentors, their immature progeny, and their eggs. The black nits adhering to the hair continue to be hatched for days after the parents are destroyed. Any common oil, well rubbed in, is tolerably effectual, clogging the breathing pores of the parasites, and causing their destruction. Stalled cattle brushed over daily, as they should be, both for cleanliness and health, are little liable to lice. Teeatuent of Beood Maees. — A.s a rule, except among those who make it a speciality, enough attention is not given to feeding b...
