Bradenton GCREC Research Report BRA1985-20 July 1985


OBSERVATIONS OF UNREPLICATED FLOWERING ANNUALS
FIELD TRIAL FALL 1984

T. K. Howe and W. E. Waters


To keep abreast of the many new flowering annual cultivar releases made by
seed companies each year, observational (unreplicated) field trials are
conducted at the Gulf Coast Research and Education Center (GCREC), Bradenton,
Florida. Biannual trials are executed each spring and fall to compare new
cultivars to older, more familiar types. All evaluations emphasize the
performance of cultivars in ground beds with minimal labor inputs. Once
planted, no manipulation of the plants takes place such as pinching, pruning,
flower trimming or the application of growth retardants. The purpose of the
trials is to observe the inherent merits or weakness of the entries. Data
collection includes information on flowering dates, flower size and color,
optimum plant size, growth habit, and disease and insect tolerance.

All cultivars in trial at the GCREC were grown from seed supplied by numerous
companies. Seed were sown in a peat:vermiculite (1:1, v:v) medium and germinated
under environmental conditions required for each species. Seedlings were
transplanted into TODD@ containerized transplant flats (1~ x 1%" cells, Model
150) filled with a peat:vermiculite (1:1, v:v) medium amended with superphosphate,
dolomite and micronutrients. Plants were fertilized as necessary with 20-20-20
liquid fertilizer and were taken to the field (EauGallie fine sand) when large
enough to handle easily and set on 12" centers into raised, 30-inch wide beds
in which OsmocoteO 18-6-12 had been incorporated 3-4" into the soil at the rate
of 9.6 lb/100 linear feet of bed. The soil had previously been fumigated with
Vapadm (metham sodium) at 50 gal/A and covered with white on black polyethylene
mulch. No additional dolomite or superphosphate with micronutrients was added
to the land, since farm management at the Research Center applies these components
at intervals to keep the land ready for agricultural use. Cultivars were placed
in the field as single, unreplicated plots with 8 plants per plot.

Pesticides used during the season included: Diazinon bait to control mole
crickets applied at planting; alternating applications of Botran and Ornalin
(once a week for each) to control Botrytis beginning in mid-September through
late November, then alternating one each week through early December; and
Dipel as needed to control lepidopterous worms.

The observations on this unreplicated trial appear in the accompanying table.
Because only single plots were evaluated and the cultivars were not examined
in several locations in the field (replication), performance and quality ratings
may have been influenced. However, environmental and cultural conditions were











not atypical and the trial area showed no visible problems. If comparisons
of cultivars in this trial are made with the spring 1984 assorted annual trial ,
performance can be more accurately assessed. (The conspicuous absence of
petunia from the list is due to a major replicated trial effort devoted to
petunia grown in 4" pots, 10" baskets and in the field during 1984. The results
on petunia performance will appear elsewhere as a separate report). Information
on 31 species and 2 polyploid hybrids includes sowing and field transplanting
dates, date of first flower, mature plant size and an overall rating with
accompanying comments on plant habit, disease incidence, plant color, and
other horticultural qualities. Ratings were given at a time after peak appearance
to ascertain which entries maintain quality longer. Highest scores are 1-3;
acceptable or medium scores are 4-6; while 7-10 indicates plants are ready to
be removed from the bed. (1 = excellent; 10 = dead plants).
