Two strains of larval Heliothis zea (Boddie) were reared on diets prepared from lyophilized squares of 14 glanded and glandless pairs of cotton lines. One strain was reared also on squares on green plants of these lines. In general, there was no difference in the growth of the 2 strains, and all larvae were larger when they were fed on glandless diets and plants. Ascorbic acid was necessary in the artificial diets for normal growth of larvae.
