Abstract:A hypothetical model of a 2-phase or reproductive-diapause control program for Anthonomus grandis Boheman is presented. The proposed program is designed for maximum suppression of the boll weevil population in the High and Rolling Plains area of Texas. The proposed program represents a modification of current 2-phase programs by employing an earlier starling date, based upon the ecology of the weevil in the Texas High and Rolling Plains.It is suggested that this type program will he the necessary 1st phase of any future boll weevil eradication effort.
