Abstract

Excellent late pasture growth resulting from the widespread rains last October will increase the bushfire hazard with the advent of continued hot weather. This has been emphasised recently by the Deputy-Director of Meteorological Services (Mr. G. W. Mackey), who points out that many paddocks now carrying heavy stands of feed will be highly inflammable once the growth has dried out. Farmers are urged to take the fullest possible precautions to avoid disastrous bushfires. Farm fire-fighting equipment should be overhauled and kept in a high state of efficiency ready for immediate use. Firebreaks should be kept free from inflammable material and widened where possible.
