USE AND ABUSE OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

USE AND ABUSE OF WATER. (By W. McEachern.) The second rotation watering will be commenced on the 15th instant, and I would like, as far as possible, to have the assistance of settlers in the management and control of the most important of the settlement's privileges-that of applying water to the land. Admitting that there are always two ways of doing a thing-a right and a wrong way--it very often hap pens that the wrong seems the easier, but the best results can only be obtained by adopting the best methods. First of all, let me impress on irrigators the necessity for having their head ditches sufficiently large to carry the water re quired; secondly, to see that these ditches are thoroughly clean of weeds and all preparation made for receiving the water before it is turned on. This applies to all classes o<f crops-trees, vines, cereals, or lucerne. With regard to trees and vines it is most necessary that good cultiva tion be the first duty after applying water, as this w...

Instructions to Settlers. FRUIT CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

Instructions to Settlers. FRUIT CULTURE. (By W. J. Allen.) The orchardist's busy time has not yet arrived. Next month there will be a con siderable number of thfings demanding immediate attention, but jeven. at the present time there are various * matters which require to be looked into, and in the following notes an effort has been made to bring some of them under re view Deciduous Trees Just Planted.-It is perhaps unnecessary to point out that all young deciduous trees should now be in the ground, and if they have not al ready been watered they should be given a light irrigation so as not to cool the ground unduly. A watering should be immediately followed by thorough culti vation. If the young trees are dormant buds, care should be taken to rub off any young shoots which imake their appearance. This, of course, does not apply to the bud itself. In many cases dormant buds will be shooting by the time these notes ap pear. The stock should also be cut back to somewhere about 6in. ab...

Soils and Moisture. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

Soils and Moisture. No. 2. Much has already been said of the harm which results from the pouring on- the soil of too much water, but perhaps a few figures will convey more than half a dozen articles containing only general state ments. It has often been remarked that wheat, for example, seems to do well on a very small amount of moisture. In South Australia and the western mallee country of Victoria success has been achieved by wheat farmers on a rainfall of about 9in. The saime thing is reported from America, where in arid and semi-arid regions with a tropical .climate, 5in. has been sufficient to raise a crop planted in dry ground, and careful cultivation thereafter has re sulted in sufficient profit being made to pay for the time and labor involved. This being the case, it becomes interest ing in inquiring what happens to the water that is poured on to ground which gets 2 acre feet or 24in. during an irriga tion season as well as a rainfall of seve ral inches bringing the total u...

A Shorter Catechism for Irrigationists. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

A Shorter Catechism for Irrigationists. 1. What is Irrigation ? Irrigation is the art of cultivating the soil so thoroughly that a minimum amount of water is required for the proper growth of crops. 2. What is Rotation ? Rotation is the Irrigation Dairy Farmers' best hope. It means abundant feed for the cows ; full time for the butter factory ; and salvation for the settlers who conscientiously and in telligently apply the principle to the working of their farms. 3. What are the benefits which in this life accom pany or flow from Irrigation and Rotation ? Revenue to keep 'the wolf from the door; to develop the farm; and a good deal in addition to spend on other things, if the settler makes dairying his chief aim in life. 4. What is the duty which is required of every Irrigator ? To work his farm to the best advantage and to live in peace and harmony with his neigh bours. 5. What is forbidden to Irrigators ? To feed their stock on the roads and channel reserves; to have dirty farms a...

MIRROOL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

MIRROOL MATTERS. Supply of Contour Plans-Settlers com plained that there had been great delay in supplying contour plans. The Com missioner was forced to admit that this was the case, but he pointed out that the trouble was entirely due to the fact that the present staff was unable to cope with the rush of work, and unfortunately it was not practicable to increase the staft. Every effort was, however, being made io bring the work up to date as quickly as possible, but delay was unfortunately unavoidable. Charges for Hiring Implements.-Set tlers in this case considered the present charges excssive. The Commissioner pointed out that the hiring rates had been made high with- the view to forcing settlers to return implements as soon as possible. It was not practicable to keep a large stock of implements for the occa sional use of settlers, and if low rates were levied a settler would probably re tain implements much longer than was necessary. An opinion was expressed by one settler at t...

Settlers Meetings. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

Settlers Meetings. Settlers' meetings have, recently been held at Leeton and Griffith, but the sub j cts brought forward for discussion were, generally speaking, not of the greatest importance. There are, however, one or two exceptions. Grading.-The rno^t interesting matter discussed is perhaps the quality of the grading done by the Commissioner's teams. It was stated at Mirrool that little of the work was entirely satisfactory. In some cases the trouble is not so much with the grading as with the outlets or the head ditches. It is, no doubt, more than a coincidence that the complaints now be ing made by the Mirrool settlers are on all fours with those made a year ago by the Yanco settlers. The question of. grading is admittedly a very difficult one. It has always been a bugbear with the State Rivers and Water Supply Commisson in Victoria, and trouble has always been experienced in dealing with the .matter on the Murrum bidge Irrigation Areas. It is only fair to say, however, that, ...

Poultry Notes. GREEN FEED FOR CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

Poultry Notes. GREEN FEED FOR CHICKENS. : Where settlers have a patch of lucerne there is no necessity for them to bother about much other green feed for chickens but, if settlers go in largely for poultry raising, and have not yet got lucerne es tablished, the matter should not be lost sight of. Rape or Kale are highly recom mended by the Department of Agricul ture's expert. One beauty about rape is that if sown in well prepared soil it will be fit for feeding chickens in a few weeks. Although it should be sown in the autumn to give the, best .results, a spring sowing is satisfactory as far as young chicks are concerned. The imethod recommended is to sow thickly and thin out, giving the chickens the plants as they grow. Broadcast sow ing at"the rate of 151b. to the acre will provide a good stand. Working this out, 41b. should sow a patch 16 x 10 yards. Planting should be done immediately. Kale should be sown at the rate of 101b. to the acre, sufficient plants being trans planted in...

Instructional Work. THE COMPLETED ARRANGEMENTS. The Commissioner wishes isettlers to be aware of the arrangements which are now in operation for the carrying out of in structional work on the Irrigation Areas in the several particular bra'nches of irri gated agriculture. The matter of specialisation of instruc tion and the different branches of agri culture is one which involves the employment of several special offi cers.

His duties will be practically of an out door nature, and will include the responsi bility for the efficient use of the water as applied to the land. This* will mean that he will be available to afford instruction a*s to the miost efficient methods of hand ling water and at the same time he will be responsible that no water is wasted on the roads contrary to the regulations.

Experimental Plots. MAIZE FOR GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1914

Experimental Plots. MAIZE FOR GRAIN. Full details of the results of the experi ments carried out on the Areas last sea son in connection with the growing of maize for grain are now to hand, and, taking into consideration all the circum stances, the figures must be considered extremely satisfactory; in fact, in some cases they are phenomenal. It may ibe noticed that in most instances individual plots were relatively small, and the yields therefore cannot be taken as an average of what large areas would have yielded, but making all allowances of this kind the fact remains that provided proper con sideration is given to the conditions under which maize has to be grown, several well-known varieties would appear to be certain to. yield returns under irriga tion which would necessarily mean good profits for the farmer going in for maize-growing, no matter whether the grain is to be sold in the open market at fair average prices or fed to pigs or other stock.
