Abstract

Mr. Joseph Barwick contributed the following paper on this subject
to the Council of the Royal Society of Tasmania, and it was read by
the Secretary at Monday night's meeting. In his paper Mr. Barwick
said :— My apology for addressing this paper to you is that we have
no Farmers' Club in Tasmania, or experimental farm, and my object is
to ask that a small space in your Botanical Garden may be granted to
test the cause of smut under your manager ; but before asking for this
unusual concession it is due to you that I should explain a few of the
tests that I have practised for the last 15 years. It is a fact that this
pest has hitherto defeated all attempts to discover the cause, which
I can fairly claim to have discovered, and it was in this way. Includes additional discussion of the subject by Mr. R. M. Johnston
