Fall Slicer Cucumber Variet '. %uapo .ro ,

J. M. White

A fall slicer cucumber variety trial was conducted on Myakka fine sand in
Sanford, Florida, as one location in the Southern Regional Variety Evaluation
Program. The field was fumigated with Shell D-D(R) in June 1979 for control of
nematodes. A broadcast application of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at a rate of 500 Ib/acre
(560 kg/ha) was used. Seeds of 18 varieties were planted on August 20, 1979.
One row plots, 25 feet (7.6 meters) long, with 60-inch (152 centimeters) wide
beds were used. Plants were thinned to a 12-inch (30.5 centimeters) spacing
within-the-row on September 5. Two side applications of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at
500 lb/acre (560 kg/ha) and one of 1000 lb/acre (1120 kg/ha) were applied on
August 30, September 14, and 18, respectively. The fertilizer was incorporated
by tractor cultivation. Overhead irrigation was used twice (about 1 inch or
2.5 centimeters each time) after planting and when dry conditions existed.
The fall was considered wet with 1.5 inches (3.9 centimeters) of rain from
August 20 through 31; 10.3 inches (26.1 centimeters) in September; and 3.7
inches (9.6 centimeters) from October 1 through 19. This gave a total of 15.5
inches (39.3 centimeters) of rainfall.
(R)
Two applications of Dipel at 0.5 lb/acre (0.56 kg/ha) and one appli-
cation of Phosdrin 4 EC(R) at 1 pt/acre (1.17 liters/ha) were used for insect
control. No fungicides were applied. The plots were disease free until the
last week of harvest when some anthracnose was found. The vines lost most of
their leaves soon after the last harvest. The first harvest was on October 2
and the last of five harvests was on October 19. Data were taken from 25 feet
(7.6 meters) of row in each of the four replications. Plots were randomized in
a complete block design. The summary for the data recorded is found in Table 1.

Seeds were from the following sources:

A Asgrow Seed Company, Kalamazoo, MI 49001

H Harris Seeds, Moreton Farm. Rochester, NY 14624

N Northrup, King, and Company, 1500 Jackson St.,NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413
