Abstract:A method was developed for screening large numbers of cotton varieties in a small area and in a short time for oviposition preference by the bollworm, Heliothis zea (Boddie), and the tobacco budworm, H. virescens (F.). Differences in egg deposition among varieties were significant for both the bollworm and tobacco budworm. Hirsute varieties were preferred.
