AUSTRALIAN TRUFFLE INOCULATION NURSERY
We grow and supply trees that have been inoculated with truffle fungi and can provide advice on all aspects of establishing a complete Truffière of any size. We produce our trees under a strict quality assurance regime, and confirm healthy colonisation of every tree before sale.
Whether you are considering becoming a commercial grower, or you are just a truffle enthusiast wanting to plant a few trees in a home orchard, we can help you.
Growing truffles is an exciting, newly developing industry with enormous potential both for the domestic market and export potential.
The ATGA (Australian Truffle Growers Association) has available an independent certification/evaluation program for truffle colonised seedlings, now known as AVSTEP.
Trufficulture fully supports this program and has been involved since inception in 2013.
A FAMILY BUSINESS
Colin, Jan, Nathan and Kaitlyn Carter and the Trufficulture team are passionate about producing consistently excellent truffle-inoculated seedlings for Australian and International growers.
As well as inoculating truffle onto a variety of trees such as Oaks, Hazels and Pines, we also produce commercial hazelnut trees.
Agronomy advice from legendary ‘Country Dirtdoctor’ Peter Brown, including a comprehensive soil report is available to new customers. On-going, extensive support is available for existing customers.
A soil test is essential to determine how to improve any soil, but many soil testing services available do not focus on aspects known to be critical for truffle culture.
We recommend the Agri-Link “Truffle-Ready Soil Test”, which incorporates the results of the latest research related to growing truffles.
Not only does this provide an accurate measure of things like available nutrients, pH, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC), and organic matter levels, but it includes detailed recommendations for improving the soil and managing the Truffle/Tree partnership. The developer of the Truffle-Ready soil test (Peter Brown) has many years of experience as a soil biologist and agronomist. His expertise on the soil requirements for the symbiosis between tree and truffle is widely recognised.
NB. Agri-Link is an independent soil analysis and advisory service not owned or operated by Trufficulture Pty Ltd.
