Climate needed for truffle cultivation

Our latest published paper, “An analysis of the climatic parameters needed for Tuber melanosporum cultivation incorporating data from six continents” is now published and copies are available free of charge.

Abstract: Climatic parameters associated with sites producing Tuber melanosporum fruiting bodies within countries that have a natural population of Tuber melanosporum and those without such records were compared. Represented continents include Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America with only Antarctica remaining outside the scope of this study. The compiled data presents a broader than expected range of climatic parameters that are suitable for truffle cultivation. Development of fruiting orchards in countries that do not have a history of natural populations has expanded our understanding of the suitable climatic ranges of this species.

This paper presents the most comprehensive climatic dataset that has ever been published.
With research projects spanning 23 countries, the majority of our results are held in-house and used to help advise those we are working with to grow truffles. This keeps our truffle cultivation partners at the cutting edge of truffle cultivation. Select portions of our research are made public, by way of publication in academic journals and scientific conferences. For further information, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
