MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. I The monthly report of the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries for this month, for the counties of Worcester, Hereford, and Gloucester, is as follows :â CORN. I Wheat looks well almost everywhere, the dry weather having caused considerable improvement. Most of the barley has now been sown, but a good deal is not yet above the ground; where showing, the crop is generally promising, but here and there it is thin and discoloured. Oats are usually healthy and vigorous, but need rain. Beans and peas are very satisfactory crops. POTATO PLANTING. I In most districts good progress has been made with potato planting, but in north- west Hereford it has not yet begun. Con- ditions are generally favourable, although the land was frequently rather dry. In north Worcester some damage has been done to early varieties by frost. MANGOLD SOWING. I I In some districts mangold sowing is well forward, but in others it has not yet com- menced, the land being too dry. Rain is badly needed to enable the seed to germinate satisfactorily. FRUIT. I Blossom has been exceptionally abundant, and except in north Worcester, where stone- fruit trees have suffered, not much damage has been done by frost. In north-west Hereford, however, blight is becoming prevalent, and washing and spraying have commenced. CONDITION OF SEEDS. I Although there are are some good pieces, I seeds are generally thin, patchy and weak, I and in places have failed completely. PASTURES AND STOCK. I Grass has been fairly plentiful, but growth has been checked by cold nights and lack of moisture. All stock are in satisfactory condition. u LAMBING. The fall of lambs has been about average, and although there were occasionally heavy losses, on the whole, mortality among both I ewes and lambs has been rather less than usual. LABOUR. The supply of labour is about equal to the demand throughout the division.
