TO DESTROY SORREL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
TO DESTROY SORREL. Sorrel is a considerable nuisance in many cultivation paddocks, and farm ers will be interested in learning par ticulars as to the best means of destruc tion. South Australian wheat-growers have eradicated this weed by putting on sheep to eat the plants close to the ground, after which the land is well ploughed and the sorrel knocked about as much as possible with the harrows and cultivator during the hot weather. A Tasmanian farmer gives the fol lowing helpful information ior its eradication :-"I can guarantee a prac tical clearance of the rubbish if the land is treated with lime and some form of potash. Sorrel appears to come very strongly after using superphos phate for several years, and the root formation thickens and strengthens. It is when it reaches such a stage that it is most difficult to get rid of. On the fallow I should use the spring-tooth cultivator freely during the hot wea ther, so as to kill the big roots by means of the sun's rays. If they can b...

KElRANG' V WANDELLA. Ihe nicetingof these teams took place in Alexandra Park on Wednesday, and resulted 'i an- easy win for the home team by 89 runs.

USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. It- is questionable if -one non-fallow ing wheat-grower could be found in any .part of Victoria. Not only so, but also every part of the fallow and four course rotation system, combined with sheep-keeping, is being steadily adopt ed. The cleanness of the crops this year, and freedomn from wild oats, sor rel, and other weeds (speaking gener ally, of course, because there are still a few exceptions) are noticeable as a direct outcome of the improved agri culture. The importance of "work- i ing the fallow" is no longer doubted, and the instances are increasing in which fattening fodder for the sheep is being grown on the fallow, thus say ing the one-time loss of a year under i the bare fallow system, while keeping the land in heart by an annual nitro genous re-fertilisation of the soil.

MIXING MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
MIXING MANURES. In mixing manures, unless care and : judgment are exercised, much loss will ' result. If sulphate of ammonia enters * into a mixture, no manure containing lime should be put with it, as the am monia -is thereby volatilised and lost. : It is quite safe to mix it with super., : guano, bonedust, kainit, and sulphate r or muriate of potash, and it may be added to stable manure if an extra amount of nitrogen is desired. On no ! account must slag or lime come in di- ;'i rect contact with it. These remarks W apply equally to dried blood, blood and i*! bone, or any organic, nitrogenous ma minures. On the other hand, nitrate of a soda will mix with slag or lime. If it ;' is desired to use sulphate of ammonia ) or blood and bone where slag is used H as the phosphatic manure, the latter should he some three or four weeks before the nitrogenous manure, and harrowed in. On the other hand, al- . though nitrate of soda will mix with slag, it is not advisable to sow them ^ together,...
NITROGEN FIXING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
NITROGEN FIXING PLANTS. 1 The ,question often arises whether there are any other plants besides the great family of legumes that are capable of acting either alone or with bacteria. and fixing nitrogen. Our knowledge in regard to this subject is as yet very incomplete. Some ex perimentalists have insisted that the property of fixing atmospheric nitro gen is quite general among plants. It has been claimed to exist in wheat, U oats, mustards, and a variety of other plants, 'icluding algae. The claims have been advanced that the property ! is a general one, and that the legumes ', only differ from other plants in that their power in this respect is greatly comes from the presence of tubercle bacteria in their roots. These conclu sions are certainly not demonstrated, and are quite generally discredited, There is practically no evidence for a belief in such a general nitrogen-fixa- i tion power, nor have we any reason for believing that the property of living in . symbiosis with bacteria...

THE FARMER'S POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
THE FARMER'S POSITION. How many of the well-groomed, well fed people in the cities ever stop to t think what would happen to them if the farmer should leave the land, or to ". ask whence came their daily bread? The only occasion on which they think of the farmer at all is when they scan their grocer's bill and conjure up vis ions of , rapacious robber out on the land, who in fiendish glee is boosting the cost of living. They do not know, or if they do very often they do not care, that the man on the farm, at the mercy of flood, drought, pestilence, and all the insect plagues of Egypt, is patiently and industriously doing his duty, and that very little of the ulti mate price of his product finds its way R into his purse. It would be ivell if our cousins in town could see the man on the land from a nei/and more correct angle. Reverses may have their uses. Until a man is down lie has but small chance to look up; but, being down, he then sees things from another view point, -.which give...
