Teft Grass. Mr. B. Harrison, F.R.H.S., Buringbar. New South Wales, contributes the following:— [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 October 1914
Teffc Grass. | Mr. B. Harrison, F.R.H.S., Bur inpjlmr. New South Wales, con tributes tlio following :— The above variety of grass is a native of Abyssinia, and was in troduced into South Africa some years ago, where it has -proved of immense value for fodder, and it is very useful for a summer hay crop. Where there is sufficient moisture to germinate, it is of remarkably rapid growth. It lias been cut for hay in seven weeks from the time it was sown. When.it is high onough to shade the ground its growth is simply phenomenal, and as many as two or three cuttings can be obtained in a short season. According to analysis, it is very nutritious, and cattle, horses, sheep and pigs eat it greedily. One farmer in South Africa declares that his cattle will leave green lucerne for it, while a prominent dairyman avers that it largely increases the flow of milk. A South African writer says: "An average crop in this dry. country'is two tons per aero ; but a good crop will yield three I tons or n...
Advance Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 October 1914
Advance Victoria. He is a poor patriot and a worse economist who shuts his eyes to, and denies the possibilities of his own country. There are plenty of people who regard affairs so persistently from one angle that they have contracted a perman ent cast in their moral and mental vision. Among these are those who clung so long as they could to the ancient superstition that j no good manufactured tiling could > como out of Australia. When' that was exploded t hey took up j new ground, and gave it out that what was manufactured was in ferior, and that we had gone far onough. and had protection enough. Returns which have been prepared by Mr. A. Laugh ton, the Government Statist, show that Victorian manufactures have made astonishing progress. Dur ing the ten years up to December j 13, the number of factories in this I Stato increased from -1208 to 5613, the number of hands from 76,287 to 118,744, and salaries! from £4,7 94,3(55 to £10,714,336 The return also shows a very creditable l...
Estimating Wheat Crop Averages. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 October 1914
I Estimating Wheat Crop I Averages. Experienced farmers have the faculty of estimating at a glance the approximate yield of a pad dock of wheat in a manner which is astonishing to an outsider. It is said by an English authority, to-be not difficult for a person without experience to get a good idea of the yield by the following simple method:— Select from the field three good ears, three medium ears, and three poor ears, and fount the number of grains they contain. Add them together and divide by nine, thus getting the number of grains to the ear. A good crop contains about 200 ears to the square yard, a medium crop about 150 ears, and a poor crop not more than about 120 ears. By simple multiplication it is possible to calculate the approxi mate number of grains to the square yard, and thus to the acre—4840 square yards. Of course, the result is far from mathematical exactitude, but the expert says it is near enough for for practical purposes.

Seed Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 29 October 1914
Seed Wli^at. The Chamber of Agriculture at its recent meeting discussed a matter of considerable importance to whoatgrowers. Mr. J. S. Mor timer, the Numurkah delegate, complained that if undertneFood Products Act the Stato allowed farmers to keep only 100 bushels of tlic wheat they may have stored in their barns, a hardship might be inflicted. That quantity would ee.v&lt;,>»inly bo insufficient for tho larger men for seed purposes next season. Mr. Kendall, ex M.II.K., pointed out that if all the wheat above .100 bushels wore taken, seed would have to bo im ported. Jn 1903 Victoria import ed 3.000,000 bushels for seed, with the result that an infinite variety of new weeds was introduced. In Mr. Kendall's view it would be better to allow farmers to retain all the grain ihey require lor human consumption. It ia not likely that tho authorities will take from growers anything under their full seed requirements. Tho chamber decided—"Thati where wheat in obtainable in the count...
