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.

      Complete Data and Analysis for: Fungicide Effectiveness on Soybean Rust in the Southeastern United States 2004-2014: A Meta-Analysis

        Soybean rust is a concern to soybean growers and management of soybean rust primarily depends on disease scouting and the timely use of fungicides. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of fungicide-use through a quantitative meta-analysis of data compiled from published and unpublished soybean fungicide trials across the southern United States from 2004 to 2014. The data included in this repository includes the complete dataset as a comma-separated-value file and all Program R code necessary to replicate the data processing, analysis, and graphing.
