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. T omato In a recent number of the "Irrigation Record" reference was made to the suc cess achieved by a large grower of toma toes in America, who made a point of col lecting his own seed. Information is now to hand, in a recent bulletin published by the University of California on tomato culture, which bears out the information given in the article referred to. Seed Selection. The writer of the bulletin lays specia* stress on the necessity for seed selection. He points out that in extremely hot lo calities, such as the Irrigation Areas, a plant with a dense foliage is more desir able than would be the case in the cooler regions along the coast. The foliage, of course, has a great influence in prevent ing sun scald; moreover, he points out that in choosing seed, the charact...

CARRIAGE OF PERISHABLE GOODS TO SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

CARRIAGE OF PERISHABLE GOODS TO SYDNEY. Following upon a paragraph which appeared in the last issue of the "Irri gation Record," regarding the transport of perishable produce from Yanco to Sydney, a further announcement is now made that the Railway authorities have advised the Commissioner that arrange ments pan be made for a louvred van to be attached to the mixed train leaving Yanco at 2.51 p.m. each day, and for it to go forward from Junee by the express goods train arriving at Dar ling Harbour at 1.30 p.m. the fol lowing day. Should there be more than the load for the train ex Narrandera on 'any given "date, the goods can go for ward by an additional "through" goods leaving Narrandera at 3.40 p.m. This also connects with the express goods abovementioned. A request was made to the Railway Commissioners for a concession in rates, and it is understood that the matter is receiving favorable consideration, but at the present time nothing definite as to the rates can be obtained.

CONVEYANCE OF CHILDREN TO CENTRAL SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

CONVEYANCE OF CHILDREN TO CENTRAL SCHOOLS. One of the great problems which beset the farmers of this country is the ques tion of obtaining proper educational faci lities for their children. It is claimed that although in the cases of the more dis tant farms our irrigation settlers to an extent do labour under disadvantages, they are, on the whole, more fortunate in regard to the opportunities offered for schooling their children than settlers car rying on dry farming. The Director of Education has visited the Irrigation Areas, and he is quite seiz ed with the importance of erecting schools in the various villages on the Irrigation Areas. Of course, as there are hundreds of other schools to be erected in the State, this necessarily takes time, and the question arises whether, in the meantime, something cannot be done for those irri gation settlers who are not in close proxi mity to existing schools. There appears to be one way out of this difficulty, viz., to take advantage of the fa...

Silver Beet. SOME NEW ZEALAND EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

Silver Beet. SOME NEW ZEALAND EXPERI MENTS. Information is to hand in recent files of the New Zealand "Journal of Agricul ture" of some interesting experiments tried with silver beet in various portions of the Dominion. As a Sheep Feed.-At Weraroa Experi ment Farm, for example, silver beet has been tested as a sheep feed in view of the failures in rape and turnip crops. Vari ous varieties were tried, small areas being fenced off in order that the feeding test might be carried out in such a manner as to ascertain which variety the sheep would prefer. The sheep also had a free run on a grass field, the silver beet being* on the opposite side of the paddock. They were also given access to crops such as Swedes, turnips, "mangels, chou-moel lier, and kale. For the first few days the sheep overlooked and trampled down the above crops and greedily devoured the sugar beet until it was eaten down to the ground. After the sugar beet, mangels and chou-moellier were most in favor, fol lowed by ...

THE MARKETING OF TURKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

THE MARKETING OF TURKEYS. The following further information, ob tained from the Poultry Expert of the Department of Agriculture, is published for the information of settlers generally: "The best method of forwarding tur keys to the Sydney market is in the crates supplied by the Railway Commis sioner. These are obtained at any rail way station upon giving three days' clear notice to the Station-master. If the crates are to be taken away from the station it will be necessary to pay a deposit of £1 to the Station-master; this amount is re funded upon return of , the crate, to the station. '"'A good plan is to use one's own crate in which to bring the birds to the railway station, where they can be transferred to the crate provided by the Railway Department. This course obviates the necessary for paying the £1 deposit. "Turkey crates are set down to hold eight pairs of birds, but in forwarding turkeys from Yanco, it would be better not to put more than six pairs in each. The cost of eac...

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

POTATO PLANTING. Although, as often pointed out before, the spring crop of potatoes on the Areas will never be the main crop, it is recom mended that settlers with suitable light, friable soil for potato growth should plant potatoes in the spring not only for the purpose of endeavouring to obtain a payable return on the land utilised, but also for the purpose of 'obtaining accli matised and mature seed for the autumn planting. Mr. McEachern strongly recommends that any settlers intending to plant po tatoes in the spring should make arrange ments so that their seed will be here and ready for planting during the first week in August, if not earlier. He strongly advises the planting of the seed as early as possible, so that the tubers may mature before the very hot weather comes on. He considers that it should be possible to have potatoes sufficiently forward to enable seed for the autumn planting to be well matured, but in order to dp this, early spring planting is essential; not only...

Weekly Waterings. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

Weekly Waterings. In accordance with the arrangements made, the Committee, Messrs. Ziele, Lock wood, Brady, Sou thee, and Craig, who were appointed to consider the question of weekly waterings, duly met in the Manager's office on the 23rd instant, and fully discussed the matter with the Man ager and the Officer-in-Charge of Water Distribution. The discussion mainly fol lowed three distinct lines: 1. Whether weekly waterings were prac ticable. 2. Whether there was anything seriously wrong with the .present fortnightly rotation; and 3. What could be done to meet the spe cial needs of vegetable growers and others. The discussion was a lengthy one, and many interesting points were considered and settled. The results arrived at may be briefly summarised as follows: 1. Whether Weekly Waterings were Prac ticable. . It was decided unanimously, that they .were not practicable for the reason that the financial loss to the scheme would be out. of all proportion to the benefits to be. derived f...

The Canning Factory. MEETING OF VEGETABLE GROWERS. A well-attended meeting of settlers in terested in vegetable growing was held in the Commissioner's office' on Friday, the 26th June, at 3.30 p.m., for the pur pose of discussing and defining the con ditions under which supplies will be re ceived and paid for at the new Canning Factory. The Commissioner, who presided, ex plained that only those settlers living within a reasonable distance were noti fied of the meeting, as it was felt that it would be a simple matter later on to ex tend the information resulting from the discussion by circular. After going thoroughly into the matter it was de cided that the whole work should be carried out by the Commission, an an nouncement which was received with much satisfaction by the meeting. Mr. J.
