Good News for Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 26 January 1889

Good. News for Farmers. If the information we have received from Italy prove correct, an entirely new industry will'shortly be opened up amongst our coast farmers. We are told that an Italian firm has discovered a process by which corn cobs can bo converted into building material.

Of tho simpli city of the process il is unnecessary to speak ; but the question will bo whether these corn cob blocks will prove ds lasting as circumstances, the maize growers on the coast, who havo for some y«ars suffered from a plethora of corn in Egypt, - and who havo puzzled her brains to devise some output for thoir superfluous produce, ought to be morn than ?ordinarily gratified to loam that science has not dealt with ...
