IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914
JIMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. Experiments conducted for the past fiurteen years have led to thle foliow tug conclusions of interest to the prio tical farmer in the matter of rotation t f crops. Potatoes' require the least water, and leave the subsoil rich in moisture. They therefore leave the soil in a more favorable condition for subsequent crops,- provided that the getting in of the potatoes be not un duly delayed and that al.trogen be adil rl to the soil in a readily assimilable form. Pens are another orop which :tuadb little moisture from the soil; oats, on the other hand, take up much. As far as the moisture of the soil is con crned, it is better to grow wheat after rye than rye affer wheat. Clover ex hausts the moisture of the soil in thI highest degree. Thus in dry years, ? crop sown after clover will find the con ditions of the soil unfavourable and will develop slowly. -

AGRICULTUBAL ITEMS. Imperfect draiiage is one el the chief causes of oroeard trees ding. Usually the grower attributes the loes of his trees to every known di-ease before giving the drainage system rea sonable consideration. it matters not whether footrot be in fectious or not, prevention rs better than cure, and it such sheep as are lame are removed from the hfock, they can be attended to more effectually and readily, and .the disease cured more quickly than if allowed to run with the remainder of the flock. Milk should always be heated in jack. eted vessels so that it will not get burned. The protico of introducing live steam into milk as a means o1 heating is.most objectionablo.
