The very pebbly soil is favorable to the truffle. The black truffle is a very highly valued product for which there is growing demand. Panoramic view of an adult plantation in production with trees that have been significantly pruned.

Viveros y Truficultura “Hnos. Salvador Redón”

Generally, various species of Tuber sp can appear Tuber brumaleTuber aestivumTuber uncinatumAD type mycorrhizas, etc. All seedlings come with the following guarantees: In this case, we shall reserve the shadier zones with higher precipitation, that is to say, what we call humid ombroclima, for the T. They can be truffles of any size, but generally they are rounder, less irregular and thus more valuable commercially.

If we wish to recover the former production, forestry actions will be necessary to maintain an adequate cover for the truffles; even so, periodic inoculations may be necessary. What is a well-mycorrhizated seedling? The promoter and director of the company, Mariano Casas, a biologist by training, previously worked with Truficultur S.

Other woodlands that may have soil and climate conditions favorable to truffle production nonetheless have never produced them; here, by undertaking inoculations and truffle forestry actions, it is possible to give the woodland a value that would be hard to achieve otherwise. The truffles form ectomycorrhizas with forest species; in the case of the black truffle, it primarily associates with holm oaks, oaks, hazelnut trees, kermes oaks, etc. Definitively, it is a matter of applying the available knowledge on how forest ecosystems function to achieve a continuous functioning of those systems.


Xavier has his own truffle orchard of more than 4. It lives buried in the ground, which means help from a trained dog is needed to find and harvest it. A well-developed root is necessary for an abundant mycorrhization to exist. These advantages for both parties described here are only the most important ones. The type B substrate Complete Substrate for Nests is the result of adding organic materials to the type A substrate.

The reward in the form of truffle production may begin when the plantation is about eight years old.

In terms of the aspect and development of the seedlingcriteria of quality exist that are followed by the technicians of the various local mznual national governments when it comes time to purchase seedlings for public reforestation.

We can carry out forestry actions in combination or not with periodic inoculations that can notably improve the production of the woodland.

In general, what is said about the seedling mycorrhizated with black truffle T. The type of symbiosis that plants form with fungi varies from one type of plant to another. This type of truffle fetches a higher price.

These woodlands often produce black truffle or summer truffle. The map shows the distribution of these truffle species, as described in detail below: The process of mycorrhization and the precautions necessary to produce a quality seedling are the following: Examining root samples in the laboratory is tguficultura to evaluating the quality of the mycorrhization of the seedlings we produce; examining roots collected in plantations at different ages is also important.

The black truffle and the summer truffle are primarily associated with holm oak Quercus ilexPortuguese oak Quercus faginea and kermes oak Quercus coccifera. Some control methods for seedlings avoid this problem by speaking of a minimum number of mycorrhizated apexes and not giving all importance to the percentage.

If the interior environment is not correctly managed, the higher temperatures and humidity of the greenhouses favor the rapid development of opportunist fungi that can mycorrhizate the root system of the young seedlings.


Guaranteed quality of mycorrhizated seedling.

Some aspects of the seedling are clearly visible: It must also be kept in mind that a truffle bed of white truffles will not produce T. A well-developed root is necessary for a minimum number of mycorrhizas. There are woodlands of holm oaks, Portuguese oaks, mixed woodlands, that once produced truffles but no longer do so or are in decline.

This overly closed holm oak woodland has lost the structural conditions favorable to the continued appearance of truffles. The components to make the substrate and their proportions are chosen to ensure a mix with tryficultura texture and pH highly favorable to the formation of mycorrhizas of T.

To achieve this, the inocula must be exclusively of T. Es un sustrato completo con la materia organica incorporada listo para utilizar.

In terms of previous crops, the most interesting lands for trufficulture are those on which cereals, arable crops in general, grapevines, olive orchards, and almond orchards have been cultivated, as well as those lands that have ceased to be cultivated but have truficulltura invaded by forest species pines, holm oaks, oaks, etc. Substrate A contains a mix of different ingredients that favor the development of the root and the formation of new mycorrhizas; it also contains truffle spores.

The truth is, the first years of trufficulture in Spain were not very successful, the seedlings commercialized in the s by a few Spanish companies and one trufivultura two French and Italian ones, were, in general, quite poor in terms of the quality of the mycorrhization, and thus the first plantations that should have served as examples to encourage others with their first fruits were instead disappointments.

Each batch is painstakingly analyzed and each order is reviewed.
