Studies of the relationship of Anthonomus grandis Boheman to short season cottons cultured in different planting arrangements were carried out in Texas for 3 seasons; a single experiment was conducted in each season. Effective blooming periods of ca. 30 days before buildup of 2nd generation boll weevil populations re- suited in yields of 600–800 lb lint/acre from certain genotypes. This increased production was associated with the ability of a genotype to retain a high percent of its flowers during the blooming period. Maximum earliness and yields were recorded with genotypes planted 2 drills on 40-in. beds or single drills on 26-in. beds.
