How to make a successful truffle orchard?
The soil, the first factor of success to cultivate truffles
Truffles only grow on a certain type of soil. This is why no "serious" truffle growing project starts without a preliminary soil analysis. Several characteristics must be checked, starting with the pH, the granulometry, the rate of limestone and clay, the content of potassium, magnesium, calcium, the water retention capacity... So many parameters to take into consideration to choose a particular truffle species.
