Australian truffles set for growth

Thursday, 17 April, 2008


Truffles Australis,  SWEP Laboratories and Palm-Ag Services have been engaged in ongoing research investigating soil samples from truffle-producing trees and non truffle-producing trees around Australia and have now established a clear difference in the soil requirements to achieve truffle production.

The breakthrough came after examining not only soil nutrition, irrigation management and climate but also the microbial interaction. This multifaceted research project has taken many years to come together. Most other truffle research has focused on just the major soil elements, or water or microbial issues.

SWEP, Truffles Australis and Palm-Ag Services believed the key lay in the interaction between all of these and the results of the research have proved them to be correct.

To get such positive results is a real coup for Truffles Australis and should allow for a positive expansion of the Australian industry knowing that fruiting is now nearly assured using these techniques.
