Data from: Site-specific management of cotton root rot using airborne and high resolution satellite imagery and variable rate technology

    Cotton root rot disease tends to occur in the same general areas within fields in recurring years, thus site-specific application of Topguard Terra fungicide only to infested areas can be as effective as and considerably more economical than uniform application. The overall objective of this research was to demonstrate how site-specific fungicide application could be implemented based on historical remote sensing imagery and using variable-rate technology.
