HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 10 March 1914

HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. An average crop of hay extracts froiri tho soil about 5Qlb. of nitrogen, an equal quantity of potash, and 131b. of phosphoric acid. A question often asked is: Sliould a dressing of nitrogen bo applied to tho land? As a rule, probably not, or to nuite a liraitod ex tent. Tho clover which grows in the field and tho bacteria whioh aro active in meadow !tfhd may bo trusted to col lect sufficient nitrogen out of tho air to nourish not only tho clover but the grasses. This is assuming that . the meadow contains a fair proportion of clover; when such is not the ease and there is little clover, then a dressing of nitrogen is advisable and very" advan tageous. Tho two other plant foods, . potash and phosphoric acid, should bo liberally applied to meadows, especially if the lield is poor in plant food. Kainit is a good form of potash, except'in very heavy lands, and then sulphate of pot ash should bo used. To obtain the host crops tho land should be well fed with pot...

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 10 March 1914

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. At Iho basis of all genuine rotations lies tho fucfc that plants differ from ono another in their demands upon tho soil, both chemical and physical; they differ with regard to their root systems, depth of feeding, their moisture requirements, their* timo of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plants impoverish tho soil^ a fow enrich it; soma spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. * Many crops favor tho growth of weeds, while others either aro ablo to hold tho weeds in ohock, or re quire such cultivation and treatment as will prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a well arntnged rotation is ono m which tho strong points of ono orop follow so as to fit into tho weak" points of another, or vico versa, and in this way reduoo deficiencies to a minimum. A crop that requires a largo amount-of ono ele ment should ho followed by ono . that requires less of that elemen...

NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 10 March 1914

NOTES ON NATURE. The economic value of our native birds is seldom appreciated. We can generally see any little weaknesa they possess in stealing a morsel of fruit, or a few grains of need; but the good th«*y do, and which they do not adver tise, is unconsidered. When we dis cover that few of our birds, compara tively, are seed-eaters, and tho major ity aro almost wholly insectivorous, their value may appear more promi nent. It is really only for a ehort time in the year that birds aro at all troublesome in our orchards and even then, the good they do is in a greater proportion than the harm. This, of ruurse, only applies to the native avi* t'aunn, and the natural inference is that they are worthy of protection. Apart from their distinctive beauty, their gentle habits, and, in mauy cases, their delightful singing, the question of utility should appeal to even prac tical folk. To arm a boy or even a jirl ^as some of our farmers do) with a gun, in order to shoot birds, is not only an u...
