First and foremost truffle production is NOT a guaranteed outcome when purchasing an inoculated seedling tree. There are many factors which lead to the success or failure of truffle cultivation. Truffle growing must therefore be regarded as high risk. However it has a proven potential to offer high returns to diligent and dedicated growers.
NZTA has prepared a guide for buying truffle inoculated trees. The guide is available in the members’ section of this website and should be read alongside the many other publications which are available on site selection, site preparation, looking after your trees and minimising threats.
