Book Description RareBooksClub. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 298 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.6in.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1871 Excerpt: . . . grown as a necessity when the Colony was first settled; but latterly the farmer has turned his attention to more profitable crops. The same observation holds good of maize, to which the land and climate are admirably adapted. Despite the prolific character of the crop, the profit is small. It is also a fact, in relation to wheat and maize, that, owing to the mode in which they are cultivated, the growers become every year less capable of withstanding foreign competition. The land being cropped year after year, and neither manured nor properly cultivated, its yield naturally diminishes. Theremedy of course would be the introduction of better husbandry where the wheat crop is felt to be a safe one, as in the Orange and Bathurst Districts. Still, although the yield per acre is falling off, the acreage continues slowly to increase, but the wheat crop is changing its location, and eventually will be settled on the tablelands. The railways which penetrate fine wheat lands in the west and south will be the means of effecting and establishing this change. The wheat crops occupied 115, 928 acres in the year 1860, yielding 1, 605, 353 bushels, or 13f bushels per acre. In 1869 there were 189, 452 acres of wheat, which yielded 3, 200, 959 bushels, or 16-J bushels per acre. The price in February, 1871, was about 5s. per bushel. Maize is grown for grain and also for green fodder. In 1860 there were 49. 506 acres under maize, the yield being 1, 602, 630 bushels; in 1870 there were 129, 713 acres, yielding 3, 880, 805 bushels. Barley and oats are chiefly cultivated for hay; the acre produces, of the former from 12 to 14 bushels, of the latter from 12 to 13 bushels.
