Irrigation and WaterLogging. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Irrigation and Water Logging. VAST schemes have from time to time been carried out in Egypt to increase the volume of ..water available for irrigation purposes, but the one great reproach that has of late been, levelled at them is that not only, do they not ensure that full use is made of the water which they place at the disposal of the cultivators, .but that fthey.have tended, and indeed are still tending,- to waterlog the centre of the cotton cultivation-the Delta. Some remedy for this state of affairs has been found in the construction of a large net work of drains and in the repair and clearance of the existing ones so as to enable the surplus water to run off. But however desirable it may be to counter act the evil effects which the land has undergone owing to a too copious and a too prodigally "used supply t)f water, it is even more necessary to devise some means whereby the utmost use shall be made of the available water supply and this waterlogging be prevented from ex tend...

Co-operation. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Co-operation. ENOUGH shares have been taken up by settlers to warrant the proposed Co operative Society being registered. The Murrumbidgee Irrigation Settlers' Co operative Society should eventually prove to be one of the most important bodies connected with the irrigation area It is to be the medium between producer and consumer. It is obvious that when the settlers combine to dis pose of their produce, a saving must result-, in comparison with the individual disposing of his own Next year the produce from 8,000 to 10,000 acres on this area has to be dealt with. This produce will reach a value of perhaps <£100,000; and even a saying of only one per cent, on this amount puts £1,000 back into the pockets of the producers. The extent to which such an association will benefit the settlers, is limited only, by the business capacity of the manage ment. * * * The case of Mr. John Rose-a farmer at Hawkesbury-as recorded in the 8un newspaper last week, is an instance where co-ope...

Fruit as a Diet. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Fruit as a Diet. THE Murrumbidgee Irrigation areas are destined to become great fruit producers. To reach the consumer, with fruit at a price that will pay the grower; and pro vide a valuable article of diet within the means of everybody,.?"?would, have a marked effect on a great industry, and on the health of the people. ' Co-opera tiori may help in bringing about this de sirable change in the present conditions regarding fruit growing and the high rates the consumer has to pay. There is such an enormous disparity between the price the grower receives and the retail price for fruit, that either someone in 'between .is .making undue profits or the system of disposal is greatly at fault. It is peculiar that although there has 'been a section of the New South Wales Department of Agriculture devoted to ' the furtherance of the fruit industry for many years, no appreciable change has been made in: the direction indicated.

Drop Regulator. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Drop Regulator. By Gv .H. TOLLEY, Engineer in Charge of Grading. This type of Regulator is indispensable in side lying1 or sloping ground, and is designed to drop the water down in easy stages in the head ditches, which then become practically staircases with long treads and short rises. The amount of "drop" shown in the drawing is 6 inches which may be varied as required- When the drops are used for re gulating water for irrigating, the drop will be found more workable if reduced to 4 inches; and when used for conveying- water a distance from a supply channel to an area to "be irrigated the drop may be increased to 1 or 2 feet or more. In some cases it will be found desirable to increase the length of the wing boards and in light or sandy land the scour boards should be made deeper. The size of Regulator will depend on the volume of water to be handled. [In last issue of the Irrigation Record the diagram showing typical design for grading and ditching indicates where the drop regul...

Two middle " nippers " you behold Before the colt is two weeks old. Before eight weeks two more will come; Eight months the "corners" cut the gum. The outside grooves will disappear From middle two in just one year. In two years, from the second pair; In three, the corners, too, are bare. At two the middle " nippers " drop; At three, the second pair can't stop. When four -years old the third pair goes; At five a full new set he shows.

Value of Herd-Testing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Value of Herd-Testing. IT is quite probable that many instances among1 our dairy farmers may be found where testing the herds showed that animals were.being milked at a loss; but we have an interesting case before us which may be again referred to. The case in view was mentioned last year by the dairy supervisor in Victoria, and published in the Journal of Agriculture. These facts cannot be too often put be fore our dairy farmers. In time they will realise the necessity of falling into line with the others who have found that the only profitable basis for the dairying industry rests on testing the herds. In connection with the testing and re cording of the yields of a herd of 141 cows by the owner (Mr. F. J. Stansmore, of "Yalart," Pomborneit, Victoria) the following results should serve as a good object-lesson to some of our dairy farmers: _ 19 cows gave 300 gals, each in 12 months. 9 " 350 " 12 10 " 400 " 12 " 16 " 450 ". ,12 .

Settlers, the Irrigation Scheme and the State. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 June 1913

Settlers, the Irrigation Scheme and the State. Mr. J. B Broatch, manager Murrum bidgee Irrigation Areas, writes :-" The success of a scheme such as that in which settlers on the Irrigation Area are interested, depends almost absolutely on the manner in which the various block holders farm their holdings. The State has already expended a very large amount of money in connection with the scheme, and this sum will be increased as years go on until the whole of the area for which water will be available shall have been fully developed. Interest has to be found on the amount involved, otherwise the taxpayers of the State are bound to suffer a heavy financial loss. The charges for rent and water rates only provide for the payment of the statutory interest, together with a small annual payment, to go towards a sinking fund, and in these circumstances it is essential, if the State is to get a fair return on its outlay, that every acre of irrigable land should be put to the very best use. * ...
