"Bonanza'sweet corn was planted May 23, 1985, in Myakka fine sand
on the University of Florida's Central Florida Research and Education
Center in Sanford. Lasso 15G 3 lb ai/acre and Furadan 15G 2 lb ai/acre
were incorporated in a 10" band at planting time for weed and nematode
control, respectively. Treatments were applied to single-row plots 40'
long with 12" plant spacing. Treatment rows were separated by one
untreated row; row spacing was 30". Treatments were replicated 5 times
in randomized complete blocks separated by 10' weed-free alleys. Sprays
were applied with a C02 pressurized sprayer mounted on an Allis-Chalmers
model G tractor. 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. Sprays were applied on
June 20, 24, and 27, 1985. Twenty plants per plot were rated for damage
on July 1, 1985, as follows: 1=very small amount of damage to whorl,
little etching; 1.5=very small amount of damage to whorl, but much more
etching present than in 1; 2=some feeding damage from larger instars
evident in whorl; 2.5=severe damage to whorl; 3=whorl ragged, tassle
destroyed. Damage ratings were taken when tassles were beginning to
emerge (shoot) from whorl.

The infestation of fall armyworm, SpodoDtera frugiperda, was
considered heavy. Lannate 1.8L at .9 lb ai/acre and the IGRs, UC 84572
and UC 86874, at .05 and .1 lb ai/acre were the only treatments that
gave acceptable control. No phytotoxicity was observed.
