I'm a new grower looking for some information on the root system of giant pumpkins, I found this old diagram of pumpkin roots Link-(bit.ly/324Ez6H), it gives some measurements but how do they compare to giant pumpkins?
It shows like 90% of the root mass is only 8inchs deep?
also a big question I have is what are the roots like that grow off the vine when you bury the node? are they substantial or is it just some small roots that don't go very far? Any info you can tell me would be much appreciated, it would be really awesome if someone made a diagram of a giant pumpkin root system...

I can't find anything on your link.

Not what I have seen in pictures of pumpkin roots.
