APPLE CROP PROSPECTS. * | ' ? . . . i .The present has proved an outof the-ordinary season ?for. apple and pear growers, and is presenting problems that have only appeared in; milder forms in the past. The ex traordinary low rainfall for the past three months is, the most remarkable occurrence in weather vagaries that fruitgrowers' 'have had to contend, with in this- State, . and will add considerably to the knowledge .of those engaged in primary produc tion, though possibly at the expense of their banking accounts — for the present, at' all events. During the past 95 days the total, rainfall in the Huon has only amounted to 3 inches 7 points— barely a third of the ave rage fall for this period of the year. Such a departure from normal con ditions is bound to have an influence on the growth of crops, and the oc currence of insect and fungus pests. With regard to the growth of the fruit crops, it is inevitable that the early estimates will fall short in every variety, but there will ...
