A Surprised Visitor. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

A Surprised Visitor. While oil the way to Mirrool to attend the recent settlers' meeting held there, the Commissioner incidentally met Mr. H, L. Levien, one of the Mildura pion eers, who happened to be in the district on business, and was anxious to have a look at the Irrigation . Areas. He was taken along to Mirrool and inyited to attend the meeting on Saturday evening. Mr. Levien is one of the outstanding suc cesses at Mildura, and the remarks he made after listening to the settlers' re quests 'and the Commissioner's replies are worth quoting verbatim. Here they are: "I have to thank Mr. Wade and the meeting generally for the courtesy of al lowing me to be here present at one of the most delightfully enjoyable meetings of irrigationists which it has ever been my lot to attend. You, gentlemen, in New South Wales, have a chance that no other irrigationists in Australia have ever had.

Instructions to Settlers. THE FIRST WATERING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

Instructions to Settlers. (By W. McEachern.) THE FIRST WATERING. By the time this article is published water will be running in almost every lateral on the Irrigation Areas, and set tlers will either be watering, about to water, or will have just finished watering. Of course, the nature of the watering will vary in the case of -each individual crop, but there are some general rules which apply in every case. First of all, too much stress cannot be laid on the fact that the object to be ob tained from the artificial application of water is to get it into the soil and keep it there for the future use of the plant which it is to support. The retention of the moisture depends very largely on the depth at which it is stored and the amount of cultivation done. Water Slowly.-It is a well-known fact that water will percolate much deeper into the soil if run slowly through fur rows than it will if it is rushed over the ground at a rapid rate. In fact, I have no hesitation in saying that more...

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. Moisture. There is perhaps no more important sub ject to the irrigator than that which deals with the various relationships between soils and moisture. Many of the failures which occur on irrigation settlements are largely, if not entirely, due to ignorance of the basic principles which govern such matters, and now that the irrigation sea son of 1914/15 is upon us the time seems opportune to give a little consideration to this important question. It is hoped that the information given in the follow ing notes will result in many of the mis takes made .last year being obviated this season, both by old hands and new de votees to the art of irrigation. Why Water is Necessary to Plant Life. -1. As pointed out in Mr. Braund's ar ticle last issue, good soil contains the neces sary...

SETTLERS' COMPLAINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

SETTLERS' COMPLAINTS. With a view to ensuring prompt atten tion to any complaints or grievances which settlers may deem themselves to have, the Manager has arranged for the Sub-Manager to give personal atten tion to such matters, and any settler who considers that he -has cause of com plaint, owing to delay or any adminis trative weakness, , is invited to go to the Sub-Manager and state his case. A note will be taken of the complaint and an in vestigation into the- circumstances will then be made with the least possible de lay. The system has been in operation for a week or two now, and is doing a lot to minimise the little frictional troubles which have existed in the past. In ad dition, it tends to conserve the Manager's time, and allows him to devote more at tention to the scheme's bigger problems.

WINTER WATERINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

WINTER WATERINGS. At the meeting of settlers held at Leeton on June last, and at the later meeting held at Mirrool, on July 18, the Commissioner was asked whether, in vieiw of the very dry winter which had been experienced up to date, (arrange ments coulid be made, for an early water ing if no rain fell before August. The Commissioner undertook to expedite the work of repairs and alterations in the main canal, so that such watering could be afforded, if required, at the earliest date. Under the Commissioner's special instructions night shifts were en gagied at the several points where the greatest amount tof work was involved. The officials and the workmen engaged on these alterations hjave pushed on the work in a praiseworthy manner, with the result that the water was made available both on Yanco and Mirrool Irrigation Areas during the first week in August. The instructions given by the Com missioner were that every latitude was to be allowed the settlers in this first watering, an...

WATER DISTRIBUTION AND MAINTENANCE. Appointment of Superintendent. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

WATER DISTRIBUTION AND MAIN TENANCE. Appointment of Superintendent. It will be within the memory of the settlers on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas that applications were recently in vited for the position of Superintendent of Water Distribution and Maintenance to take charge of this sub-department of the Administration of the Areas. The ad vertisement inviting applications stated that the applicant need not necessarily be an engineer, as the Commissioner felt that the position would be better filled by one who had a practical experience in the handling of water, and who also might have a practical knowledge of the neceissitiies of irrigators in regard to various crops. The applications received in response to this advertisement num ber ed over 300. After having carefully gone through the applications, the Com missioner came to the conclusion that there was no applicant who had the ex perience necessary to fulfil the require ments of the position.

Tomatoes. SOME DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

Tomatoes. SOME DISEASES. ; A few issues ago mention was made in the "Irrigation Record" of one or two seed bed diseases, the control of which had been investigated in California. The same authority has published somie fur ther informatiorn regarding diseases in to matoes, and the following extracts should be of use to settlers in showing how best to control and cure them. It is tea-med that most lof the diseases men tioned have already visited the Areas in fact they are common wherever to matoes are largely grown. One or twc> of them are somewhat obscure, but ap parently Bordeaux Mixture is an almost general correction for most of them-due to the presenice of various fungi or micro organisms. It would not be a bad maxim for tomaJto growers to remem ber this, and " when in doubt" use Bor deaux mixture. as a spray. - Failure to Set Fruit.? Cause: Tomato growers are often trou bled by the bltissoms dropping ifrom the vines, and although the plants-grow lux uriantly very little fruit...

Studies in Agriculture. (Continued from last issue.) PHYSICAL CONSTITUENTS SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 August 1914

(BY H. F. BRAUND.) (Continued from last issue.) PHYSICAL CONSTITUENTS SOILS. These may be roughly divided as fol lows:-Sand, clay of various kinds, and humus - or decayed organic matter. Soil consists of two parts-of an organic part, which can readily be burned away when the soil is heated to redness, such as is often seen when a big bush fire passes over a paddock and in places heats the soil to such an extent that the color be comes lighter-and an inorganic part which canmot be destroyed by fire and is composed entirely of earthy and chemical substances. Sand consists of coarsa particles of quartz or silica. Water passes through it freely Jand washes out by degrees any plant 'food that may be intermixed with it. ;It has a very low moisture capacity. Does not retain water well. Is easily moved by wind. Although sand by it Self has no physical or chemical proper ties which can commend it to the cul tivator, yet as a constituent of soils it Confers upon them certain important pro per...

PREPOTENCY AND EXTERNAL SIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 September 1914

PREPOTENCY AND EXTERNAL SIGNS. The following information, gathered from a recent issue of the "Stock and Station Journal," should prove interesting reading: In a private letter from Dr. Raymond Pearl, the noted biologist of the Maine Experiment Station, on the subject of milk inheritance, he says:-r"In regard to the question of judging prepotency from external signs, I am afraid I cannot help you at all. In my judgment it will be many years before we have any consider able body of reliable scientific evidence on this point. Ultimately I think we shall have it, but at the present time any statements regarding this co-relation be tween prepotency and external charac ters is, in my experience and judgment, very largely guesswork." In one sense Dr. Pearl is right. Judg ing prepotency is very largely guesswork, and so is much of the judgment we use in determining all other desirable quali ties in both male and female. We are certain of one thing, and that is, that all of the noted breede...
