             Plants Mycorrhized with Black Truffle



 

 Our know-how stems from twenty years of experience dedicated to the elaboration of techniques which exactly reproduce the phenomenon of mycorrhization.

Every plant born in our nurseries comes from rigorously selected acorns.

The particularity of our region offers a range of acorns from diverse origins with a same essence (altitude - region…).

Our expertise in mycorrhization techniques combined with optimal growing conditions (hydroponics - sterile environment protected from other mushrooms contamination) significantly improve both the productivity and the cost-effectiveness of truffle plantations.

The plants are controlled and certified by the CTFIL (Interprofessional technical center for fruits and vegetables), thereby ensuring a high mycorrhizal level and a mycorrhization exclusive to the Tuber Melanosporum.


                      

The plants are grown in Melfert plugs and in Godets Antichignon (a French patented system).

The advantage of these methods is being able to keep the root and rootlet systems intact during the planting (this way plants do not experience any stress, so recovery and growth will be favored the following year).

When the plants reach a certain maturity (between 1 and 2 years), they are ready to leave our nurseries.
