TALL FESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

TALL FESCUE. In a recent issue of the "Irrigation Record" reference was made to the fact that one settler, who had been successful in growing a fine piece of artificial pas ture, was of opinion that, on poor soils, the New Zealand-grass, Tali rescue, would be well worth a trial. In a recent conversation with Mr. J. E. Patterson, Farm 469, who has had con siderable experience in New Zealand as a dairy farmer, the point was raised, and Mr. Patterson emphatically stated that In his opinion it would be a mistake to intro duce Tall Fescue. He admitted that the grass was a good poor land grass, as far as it went, but it had very bad qualities, and was not by any means a good fodder. It grows very coarse and wiry, and once established is hard to remove; not only so, but it has a very bad effect indeed on the feet of cattle. Mr. Patterson has seen them very seriously injured by being cut by the grass. Information from settlers about their own experience of this kind is always ac ceptable, a...

Settlers Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

Settlers Meeting. During a recent visit of the Commission er to Leeton he met a representative gathering of settlers, and amongst other things it was decided that similar meet ings should be called monthly for the pur pose of discussing matters of general im portance. The first of these meetings was held in the Commissioner's office on the evening of the 9th instant, the manager, Mr. J. B. Broatch, being in the chair. The meeting was splendidly attended, no less than 70 settlers putting in an appearance A precis is given hereunder on the discus sion which took place and the conclusions arrived at: 1. Extension of Nursery. Attention was drawn to the fact that the oresent nursery appeared to be inadequate for the requirements of the Areas, and, in reply, the manager stated that the mat ter had not been lost sight of, but that already arrangements had been made to utilise as an addition to the nursery the area of 20 acres in front of the Commis sioner's cottages at Leeton. He further ^...

ERECTION OF STRUCTURES WITHOUT AUTHORITY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

ERECTION OF STRUCTURES WITH OUT AUTHORITY. Numbers of settlers on the Areas do appear to ^realise the necessity of ob taining permission before they proceed with the erection of structures which interfere more or less with roads, channels and other works provided by the Com missioner. The regulations are very strict on this point, and necessarily so, for if individual settlers were allowed to erect bridges projecting on to roads or cross ings at unauthorised places on channels, etc., etc., no end of trouble and difficulty would inevitably ensue. The matter has recently been brought prominently .under notice, as reports have been received that in more than one place bridges over channels have been erected without the office being in any way notified. Actions such as this cannot be permitted, and in future cases of the kind steps will be taken to protect the Commissioner's in terests either by proceeding against the offender or compelling him to remove the unauthorised structure at hi...

APPOINTMENT OF A CANNERY EXPERT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

APPOINTMENT OF A CANNERY EXPERT. It vviil be remembered that at the meet ing of settlers held on 8th May the Com missioner stated that he had given an undertaking to the proposed Proprietary Canning Co. that he would invite tenders for the lease of a building to be construct ed by the Commissioner. This was to af ford an opportunity for the Proprietary Company, a co-operative society, or any other company or person desirous of tak ing up canning operations to lodge a ten der. The Commissioner further stated that upon receipt of tenders he would come to a decision as to whether any one of the tenders lodged would be accepted, or whether canning operations would be undertaken by the Commissioner. In furtherance of this intention, as stated to the meeting, applications for the posi tion of expert in canning were invited five days later, viz., on 13th May, to close on 25th idem, or six days prior to the 31st May, which was the date upon which ten ders for the building were to close.

STUD AYRSHIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

STUD AYRSHIRES. A fine large herd of very promising Ayrshires arrived on the area a few days ago. In a prominent position at the head of the group the well-known Ayr shire stud bull "Jimmy's Heir" was to be seen as the herd travelled slowly along the road. The owners of this herd are the Messrs. Houghton Bros., of Farms 917 and 918, who have brought the herd from the property of which they were recently in occupation at Camden. "Jimmy's Heir" was for two years at the head of the stud on the Wollongbar Experiment Farm. He has the Oakbank strain on his sire's side, and his dam .is one of the finest Ayrshire cows imported by the Go vernment some years ago. His advent ^ should be of considerable value to the 7 Areas in years to come, as his stock matures. The Ayrshires arrived looking remark ably well, considering the length of the journey they had just done in the trucks. They are excellent representatives of the Gleneira herd, one of the noted Victorian studs, and there are also cattl...

Instructions to Settlers. FRUIT GROWING.—NOTES BY W. McEACHERN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

Instructions to Settlers. FRUIT GROWING.-NOTES BY McEACHERN. It is presumed in writing these notes that the instruction given in previous issues of the "Record," as to the prepar ation of the ground for fruit growing has already been carried out, and that at the present time the ground is in every sense ready for the reception of the young trees. Varieties Advocated.-The first thing to be considered with the planting is the variety which it would be best to plant. First of all, as far as deciduous trees are concerned, in my opinion, the matter is to a very great extent a speculative one, and every individual should weigh very carefully the various points which have to be considered in connection with the matter. There is no one living who is not likely to make a very serious mis take. There are, however, certain var ieties of trees and vines, which I do not think can, in the near future, be over planted. Vines.-As far as vines are concerned, recent articles in the ''Record" have dea...

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. Head Ditching. MAIN PRINCIPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

Irrigation Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, Ne^v* South Wales. Australia. Address all communications to The Editor, "Irrigation Record," L«eton, N.S.W. MAIN PRINCIPLES The object of head ditching is to supply a certain area of land with water for irrigation purposes. The dimensions of a ditch and the amount of water to be sup plied should be the first consideration in connection with its construction. If the water is supplied only from one outlet, and a large area has to be supplied, the ditch must necessarily be a long one; and if, in addition, it is called upon to convey a large amount of water in a limited time, the important factors to be considered are:- - 1. Its size, and 2. The fall in the land through which it runs. The first factor is, however, dependent almost entirely on the second. The greater the fall in the land the more the size of the ditch can be reduced. Again, the service expected of a ditch must be governed t...

Progress. ROUND FIVE BOUGH SWAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

Progress. ROUND FIVE BOUGH SWAMP. J. H. Trethewey (Farm 240).-Mr. Trethewey's farm is perhaps one of the best developed in this locality. He has at present 8 acres of orchard, 5 of which were planted in dormant buds last year. These trees have done remarkably well, considering the fact that they were planted very late in the season. The bal ance of his orchard is 3 acres of deciduous trees in their second year. These also have made great growth. Mr. Trethewey has also planted 4 acres of lucerne, which he cut four times last season, in addition to grazing it very con siderably with sheep. He speaks well of the possibilities of grazing on lucerne, and considers that if he had his dry area he would be well ahead of financial trouble. He is confident that sheep and pigs, with lucerne, will pay settlers exceedingly well. This settler also has 10 acres of oats and wheat for hay, and he has also put down 8 acres with malting barley. Last year with this latter crop he had a yield of 10 bags...

General Notes. DATE OF MAKING DRY AREAS AVAILABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

General Notes. DATE OF MAKING DRY AREAS AVAILABLE. As a result of inquiries made by the Dis trict Surveyor, Hay, as to when it was anticipated the dry areas to the south of the Main Canal would be available, the Commissioner is now. in a position to an nounce that in all probability this section , of the dry areas will be ready for occupa tion about the 1st October next. The District Surveyor, Hay, has definitely pro mised that the last of the plans will be to hand by the end of the first week in August, and if that be the case there should be no difficulty in having the ne cessary gazettal completed in time for ap plications to be lodged by the 1st Oc tober. Full details of the conditions un der which the dry areas will be actually made available will be published in a later issue of the "Irrigation Record"; this con ditions are now in course of preparation. With regard to the area on the eastern side of the ^Main Canal, action is not so far advanced. The contouring of the land wit...

SPROUTING OF SEED POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

SPROUTING OF SEED POTATOES. The following interesting notes on the benefit to be derived from sprouting seed potatoes are commended to the potato growers on the Area: 1. Sprouted seed planted two weeks later than unsprouted will come above ground on the same date. 2. During unfavourable weather plant ing may be delayed longer. This will also lessen the risk from late frosts 3. The number of sets which rot immedi ately after planting are reduced to a mini mum. Seldom does a sprouted set rot be fore the sprout itself has taken sufficient root to form a plant. As a result of this there are fewer blanks in the rows. 4. The cultivator can be worked between the rows a fortnight earlier-an important point, especially during the early spring when weeds are difficult to control. 5. The crop matures earlier, consequent ly it can be dug earlier. 6. The time during which the potatoes are in the ground being considerably les sened, the chances of their becoming af fee ted with disease are propor...

POTATOES WITHOUT IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

POTATOES WITHOUT IRRIGATION. On more than one occasion recently men tion has been made in the "Record" of good crops obtained without much irriga tion. Mr. Sjitton, of Farm No. 40, Mirrool, has, however, beaten all previous records of this nature by growing'an excellent crop nf Early Rose potatoes without either irri gation or cultivation. The seed was ot course planted in well-prepared soil, but no irrigation before or after planting ac tually took place, and as it was consider ed the crop would be a total failure, the owner never bothered to use the cultivator at all. A sample of the potatoes inspected at this office proves conclusively that the tubers are excellent. They are of large size, being from 9 to 10 inches in circum ference lengthways, and 5 to 6 inches in the other direction. They are smooth, even and firm, and show absolutely no signs of second growth. In fact, it would be hard to imagine a finer sample of pota toes anywhere, and Mr. Sutton states that he is obtaining ...
