of the stem.
When flower appears on cotton plant several hormonal changes occur leading to increased concentration of abscisic acid up to 100 folds, as abscisic acid has role in desiccation tolerance in seed, this higher concentration of abscisic acid in flower indirectly increase concentration of ethylene and form abscission zone
on peduncle and flowers start to drop.

where the boll peduncle attaches to the fruiting branch, resulting in either boll abscission or retention.
