A late spring slicer cucumber cultivar trial was conducted on
Myakka fine sand in Sanford, Florida, as one location in the Southern
Regional Cultivar Evaluation Program. The late planting was due to an
unusually wet February and March. The normal rainfall for these months
is 7.1 inches. We recorded 14.1 inches in 1983.

A preplant broadcast application of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at a rate
of 1,000 pounds per acre was made. Beds, 5 foot on center and 4 inches
high, were made and treated with Mocap for the control of nematodes.
Seeds of 15 cultivars and lines were hand planted on April 8, 1983. One
row plots, 25 feet long with 4 replications in a randomized complete
block design, was used. One application of a 5-5-8 and two of a 10-4-10
fertilizer at 500 pounds per acre were applied and cultivated to incor-
porate at two-week intervals from planting.

No fungicide was used in this trial. Two applications of an
insecticide were used and some pickle worm injury was noted on the last
two harvests. Irrigation was used 6 times due to no rain from May 5 to
May 31. Seven harvests were made from May 27 to June 20. FMX 4444 was
replanted, but still failed to have over a 10 percent stand in any of
the four replications.

Sprint 440S had the highest total marketable yield with 760 bushels
per acre. Guardian, MOX 5513, and Raider were not significantly
different in yield from Sprint 440S. These four lines were the overall
best followed by Dasher II, G8M, and Revenue. Poinsett 76 had the best
disease resistance, but as usual, did not have as high a yield as most
of the other.
