Two nectariless strains of cotton, Gossypium hirsutum L., that were field tested for resistance to PectinoPhora gossypiella (Saunders) supported significantly fewer insects and sustained less seed damage than their nectaried counterparts. A glabrous strain also had fewer insects and less seed damage than a hirsute cultivar. The nectariless and glabrous characters combined in a single strain reduced seed damage cumulatively.
