The profitability of his truffle or mushroom orchard project.
A profitable, sustainable, environmentally beneficial investment, investing in truffle farming or mushroom cultivation can be an attractive choice for good asset management.
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.
Yield of an orchard with Mushrooms:
For mycorrhizal ROBIN FAMPLE® PLANTS with Lactaire.
Production can begin 4 years after planting, Lactaria fruiting in autumn, when the night temperature begins to fall to be between 5 to 10 ° C in concomitance with the arrival of the first rains, which are necessary to induce the fruiting.
The average production of mushrooms per plant is about 400g (170 to 450 kg per hectare per year, depending on planting density).
For mycorrhizal ROBIN CHAMPIGNON® PLANTS with Yellow Boletus.
Production can begin from the 3rd year, and the average harvest per plant ranges from 1.7 kg to 3 kg (ie one tonne per hectare to 3 tonnes per hectare per year, depending on planting density).
