VICTORIAN EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

VICTORIAN EXPERIENCE. The following summary has been made of a report by H. Jacobs, of Mildura, who has recently been engaged by the Vic torian Water Supply Commission to make periodical trips through the irrigation areas of that State, with a view to giving advise to settlers!: 1. Settlers are recommended to sub divide their blocks into small paddocks of 5 acres e'ach, for stock grazing. 2. From 10 to 25 acres should be under lucerne, and the balance under rotation fodder crops. 3. Where advisable, fodder crops, lucerne excepted, should be grazed off. It is a . good ihing to feed cows in the stalls, .: vhen being milked, with dry lucerne hay or some other suitable fodder. They can Ifhen be turned out to graze in one of the small paddocks of maize, oats and tares, or barley and tares, as the case ( may be. All these, except maize, may be eaten down several times. 4. By grazing land in this way it is enriched by the manure from the animals feeding-as a matter of fact, the actual fert...

PERMANENT PASTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

PERMANENT PASTURES. . Mr. G. H. Bassett, of Farm No. 297, has supplied the following information re this interesting subject :~ "The results of a few experimental plots of grass put in-on my place, 297, last wint er, do not correspond with the results of your two correspondents in last issue (1/6/14), particularly the prairie grass plot. Had I met the two new settlers who in tended sowing prairie grass for cows I should certainly have advised them to do so. The patch of prairie grass seed sown in June last on my farm came away well, and by the spring was 2 feet high. The seed was all smut balls; not one good seed could be found. This was cut and eaten off all the summer. Six weeks ago this patch was bare. I am now cutting it for pigs; they seem to like it, and it is well over 2 feet high again. It comes away well after cutting or feeding off. In my opinion -judging, of course, from this patch prairie grass is second to none for cow fod der, lucerne included. There is more weight of ...

AMERICAN IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

AMERICAN IRRIGATION. The following information, culled from a report by Mr. Elwood Mead, makes rather interesting reading, in view of the complaints heard from time to time as to the costliness of things in general on this irrigation area. In California there are very considerable areas of land in the aggregate under various irrigation schemes awaiting settlers, and practically the whole of these schemes are con trolled by private concerns, and not by the States. The average cost of the land is £20 per acre, and the average cost of distributary canals £30 per acre. The cost of the Yanco land, plus the cost of distribution of water, dwindles into in significance alongside these figures.

TO ORCHARDISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

TO ORCHARDISTS. Thousands of fruit trees and vines will be planted on the i\reas within the next six weeks, and, as many of the settlers are not thoroughly conversant with the best methods of carrying out this work, the Commissioner wishes to make it widely known that he is prepared to send instruc tors to any holding in order to demon strate how to lay out an orchard and to plant and prune trees and vines. He therefore invites settlers to avail them selves of this offer in order to avoid the possibility of making any mistakes which may mean the loss of many trees in the season. It is thought that arrangements could be made for most of the settlers to be visited individually, but, of course, in tins case, only a short demonstration could be given. It would perhaps be bet ter if settlers could arrange to attend de monstrations on certain farms. The mat ter is left entirely in the settlers' hands on the understanding that whenever an ap plication is made for advice it will be ac ceded...

PERMANENT PASTURES. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

PERMANENT PASTURES. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I have been much interested in the articles in the "Irrigation Record" on Per manent Pasture and Paspalum, and as you invited other opinions I venture to send you our experience here on the Upper Hunter River. Some years ago some paspalum was in troduced and sown along the bank of a sandy irrigation ditch for the purpose of binding the bank. It undoubtedly served its purpose; but has since proved an un mitigated pest, as it produced seed abun dantly, which, falling in the drain, has been di-stributed all over the farm, chok ing out lucerne and other crops. It is all very well to talk about moving it, or even burning off, but when growing along drain ,, banks it is a most difficult proposition to control. The ordinary couch grass, which forms an excellent dairying pasture, is well known as a pest in old lucerne pad docks, but here it does not appear to spread from seed so freely as pasp'alum, neither will it grow into tussocks to choke the mo...

THE GROWING OF RICE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1914

THE GROWING OF RICE. Attention has recently been drawn in more than one journal to the possibilities of rice growing in the Goulburn Valley, where the soil, climate and water facili ties are, in many respects, very similar to those of the Sacramento Valley, California, where the production of rice is now be coming a matter of considerable import ance. During the year 1913, somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 sacks of rice were produced-the largest crop yet grown in California. The rice industry is only about five years of age. Last year the area under crop increased by no less than 1572 acres, the totals being given as 6,572, against 5,000 the previous year. The United States Government conducts de monstrative work in California, and a number of varieties are being grown un der varying conditions. In view of the tremendous quantity of rice imported into the State and the value of the product, the question as to whether similar experi ments should not be carried out on the Murrumbidg...

MAIZE FOR GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

MAIZE FOR GRAIN. Particulars are not yet available as tc the actual results of the maize-for-grair experiments. Threshing operations are al present in progress on several of the farms. It is hoped to have these resultr for publication in a future issue at an early date. Taken all round, however it appears that of all the varieties experi mented with, "Boone County Special" has been one of the most successful. This if a white maize which grows fairly tall, and is suitable for green fodder and grain. It is a mid season maturing variety, the grain being a medium-sized dent. It is a good variety for commercial purposes, although, of course, some people have an unfounded objection to white maize of any kind.

Ostrich Feathers. THE FUTURE OF THE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

Ostrich Feathers. THE FUTURE OF THE TRADE. Recent files from South Africa are full of information regarding the slump in the feather trade, which is affecting the industry in South Africa very largely at the present time, and in view of the fapt that it is hoped that Ostrich farming will become an important industry on the Irrigation Areas, full consideration of the present position in South Africa should be of interest. The Cash Value of the Trade.-A Reuter's special cable to South Africa on the 4th April last showed that a series of ostrich feather sales, concluded that day, realised £188,000 sterling, notwith standing the fact that 1,740 lots were withdrawn; biddings were slow, con tinental dealers providing the principal support. These figures are illuminating, as showing the tremendous importance of the South African trade. It has been gleaned from another source that the actual cash value of the industry to South Africa is about £3,000,000 per an num. The cable message above q...

VINES PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

VINES PLANTING. It is regretted that an error crept into the article on "Instruction to Settlers," published in the last issue of the "Irriga tion Record/' The paragraph on the planting of vines should have read as follows:-. "Vines should be planted well down. It is not so necessary in their case that the old surface line should be made the new surface line^ It will not interfere . with the growth of the vine if the pre vious depth is exceeded. Vines, for ex ample, worked on resistant stocks, cannot be damaged by deep planting provided that the scion is well above the surface. On the other hand it will be an advan tage, as the deeper the root system the more resistant will the vine be to th" cli matic changes which are bound to oc cur." Mr. McEachern advocates the scion be ing placed from one to two inches above the surface of the ground, as otherwise the object for which resistant stocks are plant ed is liable to be defeated since the" scion, if in contact with the soil, may devel...

Successful Pot Boiling. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

Successful Pot Boiling. More than one settler on the Areas has successfully solved the problem of pot boiling. In last issue reference was made to the case of Mr. W. Brock, Farm No. 24, who succeeded in so doing by grow^ ing vegetables. This issue the case of Mr. J. L. Southee is brought under notice, since he has achieved the same result, but in his case dairying has enabled him to get along successfully. Records have been kept through the year .of the amount of his cream cheques, and these amounts have been divided each month by the number of cows milked; the result is of course the aver age return per cow per month. The figures for the year are full of interest, particularly as Mr. Southee is not a man who has milked only one or two cows he has been one of the most consistent suppliers to the factory. The little schedule hereunder will, however, con vey more than any amount of comment: Month. Average per Cow per Month. 1913. May .. .. .. .. .. £1 6 10 Tune 1 7 1 July '.. -.V .. ....
