GULF COAST STATION I :i.IO REPORT 56-1

SUGGESTED PESTICIDE FORMULATIONS FOR GLADIOLUS IN FLORIDA <;

R. O. Magie and E. G. Kelsheimer /> ':,

Foliage Treatments ,
A. Disease Control .

1. Zineb (Dithane Z-78 or Parzate) 2 Ibs. in 100 gal. plus 4 to 6 ounces 'of
spreader such as Triton B1956.

2. Nabam (Parzate Liquid, Dithane D-14, Ortho-nabam, Thiodow, etc.) 2 quarts
plus 3/4 to 1 lb. zinc sulfate (36% zinc) in 100 gal. Add the zinc sul-
fate slowly with stirring after diluting the nabam with half of the total
water required. Add 4 to 6 ounces of spreader.

3. Maneb (Manzate or Dithane M-22) 2 Ibs. in 100 gal. plus 4 to 6 ounces of
spreader.

4. Zineb dust containing 6% active ingredient.

B. Insect Control (Add insecticides to above fungicide mixtures when necessary)

1. On new plantings, especially in autumn, make two or three applications of
1 lb. chlordane active ingredient per acre, or two or three applications
of 1/2 lb. dieldrin active ingredient per acre. (Begin applications as
soon as sprouts appear).

2. General purpose spray: DDT wettable powder, 1 1/2 Ibs. active ingredient
per acre.

3. During late winter and spring when thrips are prevalent Spray: benzene
hexachloride, parathion or chlordane spray should be used in rotation with
the DDT spray. For each acre use 2 lbs. of 10% gamma isomer of benzene
hexachloride; 1 lb. of 15% wettable parathion; or 1 lb. chlordane active
ingredient for each application. Dust: Benzene hexachloride (1 1/2% gamma
isomer), 5% chlordane, 10% DDT, 1 1/27 parathion, or 2% Dieldrin.

4. General purpose dust: 5% DDT

5. Cut-worm dust: 5% chlordane or 2% dieldrin.

6. Red spider -- Spray: 1 1/2 or 2 lbs. of 15% wettable parathion per acre;
Dust: 1 or 1 1/2% parathion dust applied at rate of 25 to 35 lbs. per
acre, or sulfur dust.

Bulb Treatments*
A. Pre-storage

1. Captan 75, 8 lbs. per 100 gal. or captain 50W, 12 Ibs. in 100 gal. Soak
bulbs 20 to 30 minutes within 18 hours after cleaning the bulbs.

2. Dowicide B, 4 to 6 Ibs. per 100 gal. in warm weather or 8 lbs. in cold
weather. Soak bulbs 20 to 30 minutes. Protect Dowicide B from air and
use it before it turns brown and lumpy. Add 1 or 2 cups of wetting agent
per 100 gal. Apply within one day after cleaning.

Bulb Treatments*
A. Pre-storage

1. Captan 75, 8 lbs. per 100 gal. or captain 50W, 12 Ibs. in 100 gal. Soak
bulbs 20 to 30 minutes within 18 hours after cleaning the bulbs.

3. Spergon dust diluted to 24% active ingredient. Apply immediately after
cleaning.

4. Captan 50W diluted to 12% active and used as a dust. Apply immediately
after cleaning.

B. Pre-planting

1. N.I.Ceresan, 2 lbs. per 100 gal. plus wetting agent. Soak 1 minute.

2. Dowicide B, 6 lbs. per 100 gal. plus wetting agent. Soak 20 to 30 minutes.

3. For sprouted bulbs with roots: Captan 75, 8 Ibs. per 100 gal. Soak 30
minutes.

C. Pre-storage and pre-planting

1. Cleaning treatment: Captan 75, 6 lbs. per 100 gal. + wetting agent.
Pre-planting treatment: Dowicide B, 6 lbs. per 100 gal. + wetting agent.
Soak 20 minutes at each treatment.

2. Cleaning treatment: Dowicide B, 3 lbis. per 100 gal. 20 min. + wetting
agent.
Pre-planting treatment: 1 minute in N.I.Ceresan, 2 lbs. per 100 gal.
Use wetting agent to wet powder.

Bulblet Treatments -- pre-planting

1. N.I.Ceresan, 2 lbs. per 100 gal. plus wetting agent, 30 minutes.

2. Ceresan M, 2 lbs. per 100 gal. plus wetting agent, 30 minutes.

3. Arasan SF-X, 8 Ibs. per 100 gal., 30 minutes.


*Bulb treatment time can be reduced from 30 minutes to 20 or from 15 min. to 10
if a wetting or penetrating agent is used. Triton X-100 and Tergitol Dispensant
TMN are effective, but TMN should not be used with Dowicide B. If these are not
available, use the liquid, dish-washing detergents or the powders such as Dreft
and Tide. For 100 gallons of dip use 2/3 to 2 cups of detergent, depending on :":z
its penetrating power which can be determined by timing the period necessary to
wet the inner husks of bulbs with tight husks.
