Dataset Open Access
This repository contains raw image data of root crowns imaged using the backlit RhizoVision Crown platform of alfalfa plants from either inside or outside disease rings caused by cotton root rot for a manuscript to be submitted. Data files and the R scripts are included for complete statistical analysis associated with the imaged root crown set.
Please cite both this repository and below journal article if reusing this data for a publication.
