'Rio Verde' cabbage was transplanted on March 25, 1985, Into Myakka
fine-sand on-the University of F-lorlda's Central Florida Research and
Education Center In Sanford. A plot consisted of one 30-ft row with
12-inch-plant spacing. -Each plot was separated by two unplanted rows;
row spacing was 30-inches. Nemacur 15G at-2 Ib al/acre was applied and
Incorporated pretransplant in a 15-inch band for nematode control.
Randox 4E-and Vegedex 4E were-both applied at 3 Ib al/acre immediately
after transplanting for weed control. Treatments were replicated in
four randomized complete blocks separated by 25-ft weed-free alleys.
Sprays were applied with a CO -pressurized sprayer mounted on an
Allis-Chalmers, Model G, tractor. Three nozzles (D3-25) were used per
row; one overhead and one drop on each side. The delivery rate was 50
gpa with a boom pressure of about 40 psi and a speed of 2 mph. A
wetting agent (X-77 at 2.4 ml/gal) was added to the insecticide
treatments. Sprays were applied April 19 and 23,-May 1, 8, 15, and 23,
1985. Ten plants were rated for damage on the head and first four
wrapper leaves In each plot on May 29, 1985, using a scale of 1-6 as in
Greene et al., Jour. of Econ. Entomol. 62(4):798-800. The percentage of
heads that were marketable was based on the frequency of heads with
damage ratings of 3 or less.

The Infestation level was considered very heavy. The pestiferous
species present were the Imported cabbageworm, cabbage looper, and
diamondback moth. The treatments that gave acceptable control were:
Orthene 75 SP at 1.0, UC 84572 0.85 EC at 0.05 and 0.1, and UC 86874
0.42 EC at 0.1. Significant (P<0.05) rate responses were exhibited by
Lannate 1.8 L, Monitor 4 E, and Orthene 75 SP. Pydrin 2.4 EC and the
Bacillus thuringlensis formulations, which are heavily used In central
Florida-for cabbage insect control, were the least effective. No
phytotoxicity was observed.
