COCKSFOOT.

REAPING COMMENCED,

The reaping of the 1914 harvest of cocksfoot was commenced early in the week, but only in a few of the exceptionally early paddocks There appears to be plenty of labour available this seamen, and most of the men coming in to harvest anticipated reaping commencing much earlier than it has. It will be some days before reaping stert3 in earnest in the earliest paddocks.

The continued warm weather seems to make it even more apparent that there will be some very dirty crops this year, although some paddocks are quite free from extraneous grasses. The rain on Wednesday, al.though it put the reaping baok a day or two, will Berve to mature tbe seed better for harvesting, and the yield should be freer.
