'Silver Queen' sweet corn was planted on September 10, 1984, into
Myakka fine sand at the CFREC in Sanford, FL. Counter 15G at 2 lb
ai/acre was incorporated at planting in a 10-inch band for nematode and
soil insect control. Lasso 15G at 3 lb ai/acre was applied in a 10-inch
band at planting for weed control. Each plot consisted of a single 50
ft. row with 7-inch plant spacing. The rows were spaced 5 feet apart.
Treatments were applied in a randomized complete block replicated 5
times. Blocks were separated by 25-ft weed-free alleyways. Sprays were
applied with a tractor mounted CO2-pressurized sprayer. Three nozzles
(D3-45) were used per row; one overhead and one drop on each side. The
delivery rate was 50 gpa with a boom pressure of about 50 psi and a
speed of 3 mph. Treatments were applied on September 26, October 1, 5,
8, and 11, 1984. The Orthene 5% bait was applied over-the-top in a
15-inch band with a shaker-can. Twenty plants per plot were rated for
damage on October 15, 1984, as follows: O=no damage; 1=etching present
on outer leaves, no whorl damage; 2=damage evident on some whorl leaves;
3=all whorl leaves damaged.

The results are presented as the percentage of the plants showing
damage to the whorl (a rating of 2 or 3). The infestation of fall
armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, was very heavy, making this a rigorous
test of efficacy. The large amount of damage in the corn treated with
MK 936 0.15EC at 0.02 is inconsistent with other studies and cannot be
explained. All the other treatments provided significant (P<0.05)
control over the untreated check. The treatments showed a wide range of
activity in this trial and the large amount of variation between plots
resulted in a low level of significance between large differences in the
amounts of damage. In general, of the materials which are currently
available to the growers, the following gave acceptable results:
Lannate, Parathion, Larvin, and Bolstar. Fenvalerate and permethrin did
poorly, which is consistent with previous trials. The results from the
chlorpyrifos treatments were erratic, but the low rate of Lorsban 50W
did give an acceptable amount of control. No phytotoxicity was
