Profitability and yield of a truffle orchard
A truffle tree starts to produce around 5 to 8 years depending on species, planting densities and maintenance.
At the 12th year, the indicative production per hectare can go from 20kg to 90kg, in the case of Tuber melanosporum.
The truffle finds in France many areas of predilection, particularly the Truffle of Burgundy, which can settle everywhere, provided that the soil is limestone. (See: Map of soil and climatic zones potentially conducive to the truffle registered design Card ROBIN, reproduction prohibited).
French truffle production has dropped dramatically over 100 years.
It has increased from more than 1000 tons at the beginning of the 20th century, to an average of 30 tons per year between 1990 and 2000.
Since the 1990s, more than 90% of French truffle production comes from truffle trees planted with truffle trees from controlled mycorhization, many of which are PLANTS TRUFFIERS ROBIN.
