A field study was conducted consecutively for two years (2009 and 2010) with 25 commercial genotypes of gladiolus at Model Floriculture Centre, G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. The study aimed at predicting some important floral and corm characters from its plant height. The measurement of plant height has been shown to be good technique to predict the some floral parameters like spike length, rachis length, number of florets/spike and floret diameter as well as some corm characters like corm weight and of gladiolus and can thus help in the advanced interpretations of the economic parts for successful business.
