OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 March 1914

OF RURAL INTRE~ST Generally speaking phosphoric acid seems to beo the constituent most lacking in Australian .soils. The beneficial results of adding superphosphates have been prov ed, chiefly in wheat growing. It has been the means of trausforming wide tracts that were only sheep country into wheat producing areas. According to Mr Richardson, superin tendent of Agriculture, the value of the addition of superphosphate can be ex tended in increasing the stuck-carry ing capacity of land, that for various reasons cannot be brought under the plough. To test the elfects of phos phates on grass land, four plots, each of half an acre, were marked out on natural pasture land at the R1utherglen Experimental Farm. One aoro was treated with superphosphates at the rate of lcwt per acro in 1912, and lcwt per acre in 1913. A second plot was left unmanured, a third treated with 2 cwt of Thomas' phosphate in 1913, and a fourth witll 2cvt of superphosphate and 10cwt of lime. The effects of these man...
