Irrigation Record. Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales. Australia. Address all communications to The Editor, 'Irrigation Record," Leeton, N.S.W. The Dried Fruit Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

Irrigation Record. Published Fortnightly under the authority of. the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales. Australia. . Address all communications to The Editor, .'Irrigation Record," Leeton, N.S.W. Problem. Considerable prominence has been given lately, in papers circulating in the south ern irrigation districts, to the marketing of the season's dried fruits, and as the subject is of considerable interest to irrigators in the State of New South Wales, enquiries and investigations have been made, the results of which are now passed on for the information of readers of the "Irrigation Record." Some Early History.-The first Aus tralian State to go in largely for the pro duction of dried fruits was South Aus tralia. Currants were there , grown largely as a side line to wine grapes. Some people then had, and still have, con scientious objections to growing grapes for wine, and the growing of currants was gone into, as an alternative. For a time no difficulty was met wi...

VISITORS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

VISITORS. During- the past few weeks the Area has been visited by a number of. distinguished people. On Sunday, 23rd May, a large Parliamentary party of about 40 came by special train in the morning and departed in the evening. They all expressed them selves as being pleased with what they saw. Following upon this, a visit was paid to the Areas during the following week by the Minister for Railways, accom panied by two Special Trade Commis sioners from America now visiting the Commonwealth. A little later on Sir Hart mann Just, Under-Secretary to the Colonial Office, also paid the Areas a visit in car rying out his Australian itinerary. In ad dition, several important Sydney business men have also been here for the purpose of seeing the "ready-made" farms at Mir rool, and getting an idea of the possi bilities of the Areas generally. With a view to recording the impres sions of visitors, a visitors' book was re cently brought into use at the Lands Of fice, and it is beginning to make...

Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

Progress. The growing season for the year 1913 having . now practically come to a con clusion, the time is opportune for a re view of the work done by settlers during the past year. It is intended, therefore, to take sections of the Areas, and to make a few notes on the most progressive settlers in each during the next few issues. This issue the notes have been devoted to those settlers to the east of the main road from Yanco to Leeton, and south : Five Bough Swamp. F. W. Schubert (Farm 14)-Mr. Schubert was one of the first set tlers on the Area. He has a 50 acre block. 6 acres of which is planted with lucerne, 5 acres with peach trees, and 9 acres of wheat. In addition this season he has planted 3 acres of Doradillo vines. The orchard of 6 acres is making great growth, and the lucerne is also doing very well. The soil on this block is of good ordinary Yanco quality. Mr. Schu bert's block was heavily timbered with box, and he has not yet cleared the whole of it. He is satisfied with...

PEANUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

PEANUTS. Dr. Smith reports good success with his peanuts this year. They have proved to be larger and altogether more satis factory even than last year's crop, al though he has no fault to find with that, or the financial result which he obtained from it. Apparently Dr. Smith is not the only settler growing peanuts, for re cently a request was preferred by Mr. G. Roberts at Mirrool for information as to the method of procedure in picking and preparing his nuts for market. They were planted in good sandy soil on the 20th October last, and have turned out splen didly. On one plant recently dug for testing purposes there were 115 nuts, well filled, the weight being about three-quar ters of a pound. From another even bet ter results were obtained, 149 nuts being found on it, their total weight being Hlb/ Mr. Roberts' nuts were planted on hills 18in. wide, and he is very satisfied with the result. They were only watered four times-another instance of success with out frequent irrigation....

Poultry Points Worth Picking Up. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

Poultry Points Worth Picking Up.)' A number of poultry experiments have been carried out at the Maine Ex perimental Station, U.S.A., with a view to te§t the eating capacity of hens. The test extended over a period of one year, and it was found that the average quantity consumed by each hen was 901bs. of grain and meal mixture, 401bs. of oyster shell, 2.41b of bone, 21bs. of grit, 2.41bs. of charcoal, and lOlbs. of clover. The cost of the materials con sumed worked out at about 6/- per hen. These figures may enable poultry keepers on the Area to form an idea as to what profit they can expect to make out of hens of average laving capacity. V . ~ . It is learned from a contemporary that Germany has egg societies that are registered. The eggs are collected once a week from each member, and sold at the Society's depot. They are marked before they leave the farm-every far mer having his own rubber stamp. Ap parently the system is meeting .with a considerable amount of success-4-poultry ke...

Water Distribution. SOME POINTS IN CONNECTION WITH NEXT SEASON'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

Water Distribution. SOME POINTS IN CONNECTION WITH NEXT SEASON'S WORK. It is the Commissioner's wish that at the present juncture settlers should give particular attention to the matter of their requirements next season as far as addi tional water is concerned; that is to say, for water over and above the statutory acre foot attached to each farm. Each settler should know, approxi-. mately at any rate, the amount of water he has actually used during the past sea son, and it will be easy for a comparison to be made, therefore, with his water right. In any case, where a settler has not got the information at hand, an ef fort will be made, on application to the Engineer in Charge of Water Distribution, to supply him with the actual volume he has used. It is regretted that it may not be possible to give this information exactly in every case, owing to the fact that in some instances meter readings have only been taken for a portion of the season, and in a few others, practically no read...

MEETING OF SETTLERS AT MIRROOL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

MEETING OF SETTLERS AT MIRROOL. At the invitation of the Commissioners, a large number of Mirrool settlers gathered at Mr. Boyle's house on Saturday night, May 15th. Mr. O. E. Hawkins, president of the Settlers' Association, who occupied the chair, briefly welcomed Mr. Wade, and ex pressed regret that owing to a lack of proper notice a larger number of settlers were not present. Mr. Wade said that he had come to try and get into closer touch with the Mir rool settlers. He recognised that as com pared with Yanco, the settlers at Mir rool had labored under many disabilities but he was sure they would understand that these were due more to the diffi culties of management, owing to distance, etc., than to a lack of interest on .the part of the Commissioner and his staff. He recognised, too, that the settlement had passed the engineering stage, and it was now for the settlers to make a success of the Mirrool section of the area. He was there to discuss with them mat ters of general inter...

LABOR FOR THE FARM. Dreadnought Boys. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 June 1914

LABOR FOR THE FARM. Dreadnought Boys. It will be remembered that we recently drew attention to the fact that- Dread nought boys were from time to time available for employment on the Mur rumbidgee Irrigation Areas. This state ment has been confirmed by information obtained by Mr. H. R. Alexander during a recent visit to the Farm, at Pitt Town. The manager of the Farm informed Mr. Alexander that he will have between 40 and 50 young men to place with farmers in, say, six weeks' time, and he will be very pleased to give irrigation settlers every opportunity of securing any help that they may require. As suggested in a paragraph in an earlier edition, it will be as well for settlers desiring to employ these boys to get into touch, either' with the manager of the Pitt Town Farm, or with the Superintendent of the State Labor Bureau, 125 Princes-streetj Sydney, as early as possible.

GOGELDRIE FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

GOGELDRIE FARMS. During the last few months there have been continued inquiries for large area blocks on the new Gogeldrie Subdivision. It was felt by the Commissioner that something should be done to meet the demand, and, since it was impossible to have blocks duly gazetted for some weeks to come, Ministerial approval was ob tained to make a section of the new farms available as permissive occupancies. Ac cordingly a notification was published that application for these blocks would be received on the 25th May last, and as a result the whole of the 14 blocks avail able were applied for within a day or two and taken up.

TONEY POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

TONEY POINT. The State's big Irrigation Scheme has been unfortunate in its names. First of all there was "Barren Jack." To fasten the name " Barren" on to any agricultural project was enough .to condemn it with out a hearing in the opinion of many people whom it was desirable to interest. That difficulty has, however, been over come by the substitution of " Burrinjuck." The change has been so successful that already the old name has quite an un familiar sound, and soon it will be rele gated to the limbo of things past and forgotten. The loss of the names " Mirrool" and "Jondaryan" has also been regretted by many, since both were nice sounding names without a suggestion of anything that could be considered detrimental to the Scheme. The same thing cannot, however, be said of "Stoney Point," which bids fair to be come one of the most prosperous centres on the Yanco end of the proposition. The term cannot be considered in any way a misno,rner, for, just at that particular point on the ...

The Murrumbidgee Irrigation Settlers' Co-Operative Soceity Gets you Business. DARIAS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

The Murrumbidgee Co-0|>erative Society Irrigation Settlers' Gets you Business* DARIAS. According to a cablegram recently re ceived by the Department of Agriculture of Victoria, darias (Ohanez) forwarded to London by Mr. R. Cameron, of Merbein, brought 15/ a case on the London market The average price for the whole shipment was 12/, which leaves a clear profit to the grower of 6/ per case after all charges have been paid. This should be ,good news indeed to vignerons on the Irrigation Areas, as Ohanez, generally known here as Darias, do extremely well. At the Yanco Experiment Farm the product from 329 vines marketed in Sydney this season returned no less than £130. These figures, of course, cannot be expected to continue when the area under this par ticular class of vine is largely increased, as it probably will be, but at the same time the grapes come so late in the year that there will always be a fine local and Sydney market for them, and if, as would appear from, the informati...

SOME 10-ACRE BLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

SOME 10 ACRE BLOCKS. J. and W. Case.-There is per haps no better 10-acre block in this vicinity than Farm 75, Mr. J. M. Case. It is some distance from Brobenah Road, but the trees and vines planted have made such great growth that already it looks like an old-established orchard. The block is planted with 2J acres sul tanas in the second year, 5£ acres trees, also in the second year, and break-winds, which are doing well, have been planted on three sides of the block. Farm 76 has not been developed to such an extent, as Messrs. Case are unfortunately short of capital, and they have to "keep the pot boiling" by doing outside work while their orchard is coming on. Last year they planted a hay crop, but this year they are putting in 3 acres of oats for hay, while they are finding room between the trees for 1J acres of onions and 1 acre of crop and 4 acres of tomatoes. There is little doubt that in a year or two's time, judging by the progress being made now, these blocks will be giving...
