WITH THE MAN ON THE LAND. AGRICULTURAL WORKING THE FALLOW THE IMPLEMENTS TO USE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 15 October 1928
'j WITH THE MAN ON THE LAND. [ AGRICULTURAL ' ? ; ? ♦ ? ? WORKING THE FALLOW THE IMPLEMENTS TO USE The implements that should be ? used in working' the fallow depend I very much on the nature of the soil and the state of the fallow. If the soil is medium to heavy loam and is free from weeds the harrows or spring-iootn cultivator wouiu serve. If semi-alluvial brown or light red loam, or heavy black, self-mulching soil, and free from weeds, the har rows would be the most suitable im plement. If heavy red loam or clay country, or if weeds are prevalent, the rigid tine scarifier should be used. The determining factor, however, is usually the . amount of weed growth. . It is often possible to deal very effectively with weeds when very young by the use of the har rows, but should weather conditions, &c., delay the working until they are too big, the rigid tine cultivator with suitable points will put the fal lows into excellent condition. The l'igid tine cultivator or scarifier is...

THE WOOL MARKET NO REASON FOR "COLD FEET." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 15 October 1928
THE WOOL MARKET NO REASON FOR 'COLD FEET.' Winchcombe, Carson Ltd. report: Despite the irregularity experienced in values for some classes of wool since the Sydney auctions resumed no reason is showing to assume that the market is 'going to the dogs.' Consumers are apparently uncertain regarding the basis on /which rates will settle down for the season, but no doubt exists that the Australian clip will be readily absorbed. Trade in many consuming countries has not been up to the level expected earlier in the year, but the raw material has been used in good volume and the supplies of it imported during the past season commenced to decreafee months ago. Even in Great Britain from which the most depressing news has emanat ed the amount of wool on hand at the end of July wa!s the smallest at that date since i926. At the end of June an authority started that the stocks of wool in America had reach ed the lowest possible limit to which they could go without hindering turn over in the mill...
