WHEAT. (From the Farmer's Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 4 September 1839

WàtitAT. I (From th» Farmer's Magetiue.) j THE preparation of the seed is of great consequence. Two objects are to bß answered by it; to get rid of the light and imperfect seed, and likewise foreign seeds, or the seeds of weeds ; and to furnish a preventative against smut. The smut, which io respect to its nature, has long been a matter of dispute, is now generally considered to be a minute plant, the seeds of which adhere to the grain of wheat. These seeds mnst be destroyed ; and this is to b#done by the application of serine caustic or cleansing substance to the grains before sowing. Various steepSTor w&shes have been successfully used-4 very small solutions of arsenic, of blue vitriol, and of green vitriol, have been employed with perfect success. But a strong brine is equally efficacious ; lefcïit be, if convenient, the brine of a beef "bar rel. Let the seed wheat be first thoroughly washed in water, and all the dirt and light imperfect seeds be floated off; and then, af...

SHEEP FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 4 September 1839

SHEEP FARMING. EVERY thing relating to sheep farming taust be interesting anti important to the settler in South Australia, and we there fore deem it to be our duty to devote as tauch of our space »9 possible to sucb subjects. Sheep will be one of the great sources of the wealth of this colony-its climate and luxurious herbage being admirably adapted for the prod notion of the finest woo!, and in the greatest abun dance ; and we have uo doubt from the spirited manner in which this branch of industry is pursued, aud from the rapidity with which our flocks are increasing, vet y shortly South Australia will make no inconsiderable figure in the English wool »arket. In the growing and general manage ment of wool, the seièler of this colony enters the field of competition under very great advantages.
