Permanent Pastures. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1914

Permanent Pastures. Still another anti-paspalumite wishes to speak his mind. The matter has been so well ventilated lately that further refer ence to it is hardly necessary; still, as the latest letter has much of interest in it, and new ground is broken, it is pub lished. Correspondence on the subject may now be considered closed. The Commissioner's decision regarding the prohibition of the erass will be an nounced as soon as possible. The Editor, "Irrigation Record." Sir,-There has been a lot of rumours floating around lately about paspalum; but the rumours are nothing to what the seeds from the experimental plot will be. It seems a peculiar thing to me that any one should want to experiment with pas palum when the Yanco Experimental Farm has already "experimented" and condemned it. Now, I'm not rushing in to print just to abuse Mr. O'Callaghan for suggesting the introduction of the pas palum curse, but to utter a timely warn ing to unfortunate new-chum irrigation ists, and at the...

AGRICULTURAL BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

AGRICULTURAL BOOKS. The Lee ton Central News Agency, con ducted by Mr. Tack Stewart, is a progress ive business. The proprietor is giving spe cial attention to the stocking of agricul tural works, and it is just as well that the settlers should know that they can obtain locally instructive volumes on various phases of agriculture. Among others available at this agency the following may be mentioned:-"The Countrv Gentle man," "Hoard's Dairyman," "The Pacific Rural Press," "The Irrigation Age" (four of the best periodicals of the day). Inexpensive volumes, such as "Rum sey's Vegetable Growing," "Poultry Book of Australia," "Duck Book of Australia." "O'Callaghan's Milk and Butter Tables," °re also to be had. In addition to these, Mr. Stewart has made arrangements with Messrs. Angus and Robertson for the sup ply of a large number of second-hand volumes on agriculture, and these he hopes to have available for issue shortly. Leg weakness is an intimation also that the maintenance of a sou...

Studies in Agriculture. SOIL FORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

Studies in Agriculture. SOIL FORMATION. By H. F. Braund. It is thought that a series of articles dealing with the scientific facts under tying the most commonplace operations in agriculture would not only prove interest ing to the many, but would also be a factor in helping towards success those who desire: to "make good" in the com mercial sense, as well as assisting those who wish to improve their store of agri cultural knowledge to take an intelligent interest in the simple daily routine of farm work and to know the "Why" and "How," for this also teaches us "When." Everything we grow antl anything we accomplish in the realm or profession which has long since been known by the name of "farming" under its many head ings and in its various aspects, is govern ed by rules or laws as inimitable as is the sun's rising. Everything in agriculture has its meaning. All things are logical if we oiily study them closely enough to see this. Why one man's block is richer or more suitable for fr...

FOR THE WHEAT, OAT, OR BARLEY CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

FOR THE WHEAT, OAT, OR BARLE7 CROP. Mr. W. T. Nixon, of .Geo. Shirley, Ltd., writes regarding harrowing the surface on dry areas planted with crop: " Much depends upon the breaking of the soil crust after rainfall, and in most of the wheat districts rain has fallen, re lieving many crops that were anything but promising. One's crop is not yet out of trouble, especially those growing upon the stiffer class of soil, for if this set surface is not broken by harrowing, the-s;land'''will consolidate and dry out quickly, whereas if harrowed as soon as 'the land is- 'flry enough much moisture 'will be conserved, besides permitting the necessary aeration of the base of the stool, which means much for the future of ' the crop. Should the surface be al lowed to cake hard there will be trouble as soon as the hot weather sets in, with little chance of doing anything beyond again chancing; to 1 rain,;? for on most of the heavy soils the harrow would not break the stiff dry surface unless heavily...

PECAN NUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

PECAN NUTS. Some time ago Mr Frank Coffee brought under the Commissioner's notice the question of the cultivation of the Pecan Nut, which is largely: grown in Ameritia, particularly in the State of Texas. Samples of these nuts were for warded to the Manager on 21st April last, with a view to their being planted at the Nursery, and since that date communica tions have passed between this office and the Department of Agriculture with re gard to the planting of a few varieties of Pecan Nuts at the Experiment Farm. Difficulty has, however, been met with in obtaining seed, but arrangements have now been made with a grower'of Helidon, Queensland, for <a supply to be purchased by the Commissioner for distribution among settlers who would be willing to plant them. The Pecan is a species of hickory found in the south-central United States. In Texas it attains immense size. The nut is small, oblong, and thin-shelled, and is said to have a sweet rich flavor. More over, it has excell...

Lucerne Growing. UNDER IRRIGATION IN NORTHERN INDIA [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

Lucerne Growing. UNDER IRRIGATION IN NORTHERN INDIA Some years ago Mr. G. W. D. Breadon, now of the Commissioner's Engineering Staff at Leeton, carried out extensive lu cerne growing experiments in the Pun jaub, India. The following information has been culled from notes which he has been good enough to supply : With a view to supplying succulent fod der during the four months in the year when the natural grasses and herbage of the Punjaub do not provide sufficient food of the kind for the milking cattle there, it was decided to plant an area with lucerne, the great fodder value of which is recognised throughout Asia. See ing that there are so many varieties of the plant, it was at first difficult to de termine which wEs the most suitable to the conditions, but, after careful con sideration, it was decided to try both "Kaligan" (Turkestan lucerne) and "Al falda" (Arabian lucerne), both good types of the lucerne family. Selection of thfe Seed.-The greatest of care was taken to obtain...

Genera) Notes. THE NEXT SETTLERS' MEETING. In accordance with arrangements made at the last settlers' meeting, all subse quent meetings iare to fall automatically on the Tuesday following the monthly meetings of the two Associations. This moon those meetings have been fixed for the 30th July and the 1st Au gust, and the Commissioner's meeting will therefore follow on the evening of Tues day, the 4th August, at 7.30 p.m. At least one matter of vital import ance will be discussed, and all settlers are cordially invited to be present.

Settlers Meetings. THE LEETON MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

Settlers Meetings. THE LEETON MEETING. The second of the series of Settlers' Meetings, recently inaugurated by the Commissioner, was held at Leeton on Monday, 13th July. In opening the meet ing, the Commissioner stated that a cer tain amount of misconception had ap parently arisen regarding his position in reference to the meetings. He stated it was his intention to be present whenever he possibly could. In fact, he had de cided to try to make arrangements to meet settlers on the occasion of each meeting. He regarded them as his own meetings, and he fully recognised the good which must result from his being brought into close touch with ,the settlers twelve times in each year. He apologised for his absence on the last occasion, and fully ex plained the importance of the ^business which made it impossible for him to be present. The following matters were then discussed: Straying- Stock.-The Commissioner pointed out that the matter had apparent ly been well threshed out with the man a...

Irrigation Record. Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, Vew South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to The Editor, 'Irrigation Record," Leeton, N.S.W. Culture. NOTES BY MR. W. McEACHERN. The matter of citrus culture has been so fully discussed that it seems hardly ne ressarv to again nrake lengthy reference to it, but in view of the fact that manv settlers are turning their attention to the growing of citrus trees, further reference to the matter at this time of the year is perhaps opportune, more particularly as outside nurseries are catering for the re auirements of settlers on the Area as well as the Commissioner's nursery at Leeton. Varieties Advocated.-I consider that settlers on the Area should devote their hnd to the cultivation of the following four varieties of oranges: (1) Washington Navel. (2) Joppa. (3) Mediterranean Sweet. (4) Late Valencia. These ripen in the above order, and are of the highest and most appr...

AT MIRROOL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

AT MIRROOL. A very largely attended meeting of set tlers was held at Mirrool on the evening of Saturday, the 18th ultimo. The Com missioner, the manager, and several of the heads of branches were present. The fol lowing matters (inter alia) were dis cussed: The Water Question.--The necessity for winter watering was brought under no tice by Mr. Hawkins, who explained the position fully. The Commissioner gave a similar reply to that reported in con nection with the Yanco meeting, and it was decided to allow the matter to rest in his hands on the understanding that water would be provided as early as pos sible. * In reply to an inquiry the Commission er stated that arrangements had been made to supply water for the small farms to the north of Hanwood Village at the opening of the irrigating season, even if it necessitated the construction .of an earthen channel to meet the requirements of the situation. Establishment of a Cheese Factory. The Commissioner pointed out that the last time ...

Dairying Notes, Instructor in Dairying and Allied Agriculture. Steers v. Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1914

0 Dairying Notes, BY H. R. ALEXANDER. Instructor in Dairying and Allied Agriculture.: Steers v. Pigs. One of the first things that I noticed on coming to the Areas was the number bf steer calves that settlers were rear ing. In mustering up the stock the other day I was surprised at the very mixed .class of cattle which I found running to gether, and I felt very sorry indeed .at the great preponderance of steer calves. ! These calves are practically of all dairy jbreeds, and could not be classed as good ibeef types. On a place like the Irrigation 'Areas, where conditions are such that '.settlers must make the very best use of the land under their control and the fod der grown thereon, it is a pity . to see so many steer "calves, for they are an ex pensive commodity for settlers to bother about. I It is apparently not generally known or - realised that the same amount of feed which is necessary to rear a steer until it is able to look out for itself-and it .jis apparent that settlers ...
