Abstract:Species, breeding stocks, and cultivars of cotton, Gossypium spp., were evaluated for growth, survival, and egg laying of Lygus hesperus Knight, a serious cotton pest. Nineteen cotton genotypes that adversely affected behavior and development of lygus bugs were identified. A high gossypol, nectariless, glabrous G. hirsutum L. cotton, 247-1-6; 4 genotypes of G. barbadense L.; and 5 stocks with germplasm from G. harknessii Brandagee and G. longicalyx Hutchinson and Lee were particularly unsuitable for normal behavior and development of L. hesperus. A glandless genotype had greater nymphal hatch and survival, while a frego bract cotton had greater nymphal survival, as compared to a commercial cultivar of G. hirsutum, 'Acala SJ-1.'
