Flower plays an important role in people’s celebration and everyday lives. Among the floriculture, gladiolus is one of them. Cultivation of gladiolus flower produces huge emphasis due to less maintenance and high economic return. Even though, the diseases on gladiolus have major economic impact on quality and quantity. Moreover, weather condition is one of the major factors on disease cause and its development, which is directly proportionate to different parameters viz, Temperature, Rainfall and Humidity. Therefore, by considering the economic losses, an investigations and experiments were carried out during 2012-2013 at Department of Plant Pathology, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (Maharashtra). The observations on wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. gladioli) incidence were recorded at weekly and monthly in relation to different effect of weather parameters and its correlation. During the experiment, it was observed that initiation of wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. gladioli) symptoms occurred during 26th meteorological week with an incidence 1.25 per cent. Higher disease incidence i.e. 43.12 per cent was recorded during 46th meteorological week. Maximum temperature showed positive correlation with wilt infection whereas negative and significant correlation was established by rainfall, minimum temperature and relative humidity.
