Oviposition resistance-nonpreference of boll weevils, Anthonomus grandis Grandis Boheman, was measured on day-neutral (flowering response not sensitive to daylength) lines of primitive cotton, Gossypium hirsutum L. Six of nine lines (T-109DN, T-277- 2-6DN, T-330DN, T-759DN, T-763DN, and T-790DN) had significantly less boll weevil oviposition and significantly fewer boll weevil-damaged squares than the susceptible checks, 'Stoneville 213,' and 'Deltapine 41,' or 'Deltapine 61' in both laboratory and field tests. The level of field resistance in these primitive cottons approximated that of the frego-nectariless resistant check, La.81-560FN. These primitive day-neutral-derived lines represent an important level and a previously unexploited source of resistance that can be used readily for germplasm enhancement of upland cotton. Their resistance was not attributed to any morphological trait.
