A study of the influence of temperature on the growth ofFusarium vasinfectum Atkinson causing the wilt disease of cotton in Western India was undertaken at Pusa in the winter of 1925–26. The fungus was grown in solid and liquid media and the optimum temperature for growth in both cases was found to be approximately 25°C. The minimum temperature seems to be a little below 13°–14° and the maximum appears to lie between 35° and 40°C.
