[Webinar] Christine Fischer: Understanding basics & fundamentals of starting a truffle plantation
March 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Introductory NATGA webinar will provide a foundation to the science and ecology of Tuber melanosporum. With this knowledge and understanding we are better prepared to evaluate and make decisions for the establishment and management of a Black Truffle orchard from the onset of the inclination to be a truffle farmer through the realization of that dream. A strong foundation helps to inform good practices.
