Does Super Burn the Crop? [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Stock Journal — 9 May 1919
-Etae's Super Burn the Crop ? Since the publication of articles iu this paper recommending the use of heavier dressings of super phosphate wheu sowing wheat, the opinion has beeu advanced that more than the allovvnnce now given would "burn" the crop in a dry spring. Minyip farmers in par ticular have said that it would be daugerous to apply more than 50 lbs. au acrc. This is the survival of an extremely aged theory which arose when Australian farmers were ju the habit of curling out stable manure and spreading it all too thickly in file wheat paddock. It was also encouraged by the use of heavy dressings of purely nitro genious manures. It Is entirely erronious in regard to .superphos phate.

As a fact super Is so far from burning the crqp in a dry year thai ■it actually increa...

The scholars, after having been assembled in the school grounds, were matched to their places in the room, aud throughout the impress ive ceremony their behaviour clear ly betokened that even to the tiniest tot a very reverent feeling was held towards those former sclibitl-boys who had grown to manhood's es tate, and offered themselves for tho defence of Home and Country.
