Spring Slicer Cucumber Variety Evaluation

J. M. White

A spring slicer cucumber cultivar trial was conducted on Myakka fine
sand in Sanford, Florida, as one location in the Southern Regional Variety
Evaluation Program. Beds, 1.5 m wide, were made and treated with Mocap
at 2.2 kg/ha for control of nematodes. A preplant broadcast application
of a 10-4-10 fertilizer at a rate of 439 kg/ha was made. Seeds of 17
cultivars and lines were hand planted on May 1, 1980. One row plots, 7.6 m
long with 1.5 m wide beds 7 cm high were used with 5 replications in a
randomized complete block design. Plants were thinned to a 30.5 cm
spacing within-the-row. Three applications of a 10-4-10 fertilizer at
560 kg/ha were applied at two week intervals. The fertilizer was incor-
porated by tractor cultivation. Overhead irrigation was used three times
(about 2.5 cm each) when dry conditions existed. The season was considered
warm and dry with 10.7 cm of rain in May and 13.3 cm in June.

One application of Dipel at 0.56 kg/ha was used for insect control.
No fungicide was applied. Target spot 'J'-'ny and powdery mildew became
obvious around mid-harvest (June 26). XP-1251, FX 4289, and Slice Master
were the most susceptible to downy mildew. Several lines appeared immune
to downy and powdery mildew.

The first of 8 harvests was on June 12 and the last on July 7. The
summary for the data recorded is found in Table 1.
