Fall Slicer Cucumber Variety Evaluation

J. M. White

A fall slicer cucumber variety trial was conducted on a Myakka fine sand in
Sanford, Florida, as one location of the Southern Regional Variety Evaluation
program. A broadcast application of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at a rate of 500 lbs/acre
was used. Seeds of 20 varieties were planted on August 31, 1977. One row plots
with 60-inch wide beds were used. After making the beds, Nemacur was applied for
control of nematodes and Amex at 1/2 gallon per acre was applied for weed control.
Plants were thinned to a 12-inch spacing within the row on September 16. Three
side applications of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at 500 lbs/acre were applied every two weeks
starting on September 12. The fertilizer was incorporated by either hand or tractor
cultivation. Three lines did not germinate and were replanted. The second plantings
did not germinate. Overhead irrigation was used (about 1-inch each time) after
planting and when dry conditions existed. Four applications of Thiodan 2E at
2 quarts/acre were used to control the pickle worm. No fungicides were applied.
Although alternaria was present in local pickle fields, none was observed in this
trial. No disease symptoms were noted.

The first harvest was on October 14 and the last of eight harvests was on
November 7. Harvest was two times per week. Data were taken from 19.7 feet of
row in each of the 5 replications. Plots were randomized. The summary for the data
recorded is found in Table 1.------
