The relationship between the meso-climate and tobacco leaf fleck is investigated by correlating wind, temperature and relative humidity records of six stations within the flecking area with the fleck index. Criteria for the recognition of the lake breeze are established and the correlations that exist between the lake breeze and flecking are shown. It is concluded that the lake breeze correlates effectively with flecking when the lake breeze is accompanied by a southerly gradient wind. The lake breeze and meteorological processes connected with it may provide a mechanism for fumigation in the manner suggested by Mukammal (1959) and (1960).
