Data underlying the publication: Chitin- and keratin-rich soil amendments suppress Rhizoctonia solani disease via changes to the soil microbial community



Microbial and chemical-physical data from soil samples treated with ten organic products were selected to assess their potential to enhance disease suppression in soil.
After the products were amended into two different arable soils, pot experiments were performed to assess soil suppressiveness against the fungal pathogen Rhizoctonia solani.
In addition, several soil characteristics were analyzed, as well as the bacterial and fungal community composition and how microorganisms interact within these communities, to better understand the effect of the organic amendments on creating disease suppressive soils.
