'Silver Queen' sweet corn was planted October 5 in Myakka fine sand on
the University of Florida's Agricultural Research and Education Center in
Sanford. Furadan 10G 2 lb ai/acre and Lasso 15G 3 lb ai/acre were incorporated
at planting time in a 15" band for nematode and weed control, respectively.
A plot consisted of one 50' row with 12" plant spacing. Plots were separated
by two untreated rows (row spacing was 30"). Treatments were replicated in
five randomized complete blocks separated by 10' weed-free alleys. Sprays
were applied with a CO2 pressurized sprayer mounted on an Allis-Chalmers model
G tractor. Three nozzles were used per row; one overhead (TX 24) and one
drop (TX 12) on each side. The delivery rate was 50 gpa with a boom pressure
of about 40 psi and a speed of 3 mph. Sprays were applied October 27,
November 4, 12, and 18. Twenty plants per plot were rated for damage on
November 19 as follows: 0Ono damage; 1=etching only (evidence of foliar
feeding by newly hatched larvae); 2=light bud damage; 3=severe bud damage;
S and 4=bud completely destroyed. Damage ratings were taken when the plants
were 12 to 18" tall; the stage considered most susceptable to bud destruction
by fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith). Only the percentage
of plants showing ratings of 3 and 4 were included in the table since the
lower ratings were not considered a threat to the plant.

The infestation level was considered heavy. All rates of Ambush, Ammo,
and Cymbush, Lannate at .50 lb, Larvin at .75 lb, and Monitor at 1.0 Ib
ai/acre were very effective in stopping severe bud damage. Lannate at .25
Ib, Orthene at 1.0 Ib, and U-56295 at .675 lb ai/acre were fairly effective
in stopping severe bud damage. Significant (P < .05) rate responses occurred
with Lannate, Larvin, Monitor, Orthene, and U-56295. The addition of Coax
at 2 Ib/acre significantly (P < .05) reduced the efficacy of Lannate at .125
lb ai/acre (Lannate at .25 lb ai/acre is the lowest label rate for sweet corn).
The efficacy of Monitor and Orthene was not significantly (P > .05) changed
by the addition of X-77. No phytotoxicity was observed.
