Excerpt from Quensland, Bureau of Sugar Experiment Stations: Monthly Notes on Grubs and Other Cane PestsAny information upon the subject of white grubs is of such far-reaching importance that it should be readily available in every sugar-growing country. Furthermore, these notes, though they have appeared in scattered publications of the State, are here presented in a combined form, more accessible to our own growers, and more adaptable to filing in libraries. It is considered best to present them in their original form, as they were prepared, month by month, so that the progress of the investigation may be noted.As soon as I was able to make a brief survey of the situation, after my arrival in, Queensland, I outlined the following questions, seeking information from experienced growers. These were published in the "Australian Sugar Journal," August and September, 1917: -(1) How long is newly-cleared scrub land free from grub attack?(2) Have you any experience with Mauritius bean as a green manure following failure of the cane crop?(3) Have you used any other form of green manure successfully?(4) Have you any land that is now free from grubs that was formerly infested?(5) Have you had any experience in ploughing under the trash on infested land?(6) Have you any experience in the treatment of infested land with nitrate of soda or other chemical fertilisers?(7) What is your experience in the treatment of infested land with meatworks manure?(8) Have you any experience in the treatment of infested land with stable manure?(9) Have you any experience in late planting on infested soils - say, December?(10)Have you ever known grubs to attack cane on forest land?I hoped from the answers to these questions to compile a lot of valuable information, which might aid us in our materially in our study of cane grubs and their control.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
