The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 62

Turnips

Turnips.

There was in 1891 a much greater quantity of laud sown with turnips and rape than in 1890. The low price of grain has caused greater attention to be given to sheep feeding, and as one of the results there were 402,184 acres under turnips and rape in 1891, against 352,903 in 1890, an increase of 49,281 acres. The facility with which root crops are grown is a most important factor in the future development of the pastoral products of the colony.
