Populations of the army cutworm, Chorizagrotis auxiliaris (Grote), tended to be higher in winter barley than winter wheat planted side by side in the same field. Highest populations occurred in barley within 30 feet of the adjoining wheat. Distribution of larvae in linear 1-foot samples agreed closely with the Poisson. Practical application of these results are discussed.
