Analyse de terre pour la truf­fi­cul­ture – Robin Pépinières

Soil anal­ysis:

Soil analysisWhen a parcel is se­lected for a fu­ture truffle or­chard or mush­room or­chard, it is indis­pens­able to carry out a soil anal­ysis.

This soil anal­ysis is to de­ter­mine which host species (truffle oaks, truffle hazel tree...) and espe­cially which as­so­ci­ated fungi (Perigord truffle, Bur­gundy truffle, Lac­taire, Slipery jacks...) are the best adapted to your soil.

These are de­pen­dent on the phys­ical and chem­ical prop­er­ties of your site , and espe­cially its acidity (pH) its cal­cium and of or­ganic matter con­tents.

Methods of the anal­ysis:

  • If your land is ho­mo­ge­neous, send a soil sample of around 500g taken at a depth of 20 cm.
  • If your land is hetero­ge­neous or pre­sents re­lief, send us sev­eral 500g soil sam­ples, taken at a depth of 20 cm, clearly la­beling the dif­ferent sam­ples.
