Fall Slicer Cucumber Variety Evaluation

J. M. White '.-4 L


A fall slicer cucumber variety trial was conducted o a Myq jine;sand in
Sanford, Florida, as one location of the Southern Region Variety Evaidation
program. A broadcast application of a 5-5-8 fertilizer va rate of 500 Ib/acre
was used. Seeds of 12 varieties were planted on August !U! 978. Ut 'rb b plots
20 feet long, with 60-inch wide beds were used. After making bthe"beds~-Mecap_ 1J
was applied for control of nematodes and Amex1 at 1/2 gallon per acre was applied
for weed control. Plants were thinned to a 12-inch spacing within the row on
September 9. Three side applications of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at 500 Ib/acre were
applied every two weeks starting on September 10. The fertilizer was incorporated
by either hand or tractor cultivation. Overhead irrigation was used (about 1-inch
each time) after planting and when dry conditions existed. Four applications of
Thiodan 2E at 2 qt/acre were used to control pickle worm. No fungicides were
applied. The plots were disease free until the last ten days of harvest when
some powdery and downy mildew were found. Target spot also was noticed at this
time and was considered severe on all lines.

The first harvest was on October 4 and the last of seven harvests was on
October 26. Harvest was two times per week. Data were taken from 20 feet of
row in each of the five replications. Plots were randomized. The summary for
the data recorded is found in Table 1.
