The company performs within its facilities and laboratory with always up-to-date and scrupulous techniques the sporal inoculations of the seedlings, a very important and delicate phase for a subsequent and good mycorrhization, it is carried out in spring, directly by our technician following a very strict protocol.

During seedling rearing in protected culture, all techniques are adopted to preserve a semi-hysterical environment, thus avoiding contamination by polluting fungi. In fact, seedlings inoculated with different truffle species are raised in separate greenhouses to avoid any kind of pollution.

The lots of plants are randomly monitored through the use of microscopes to verify the mycorrhization process, they are numbered and clearly identifiable by age and type of plant, they are also recorded in the "Register Of Certified Plants" which is endorsed by the Emilia Romagna Region Phytosanitary Service and must always be well updated with the loading-unloading.

In November the mycorrhization of the seedlings is checked and only the lots that have reached a 'high and uniform percentage of mycorrhized root apices with the inoculated Tuber and in the absence of mycorrhizae of other Tuber or polluting fungi, will be considered suitable for truffle farming. In addition, the plants must be well developed, balanced in all its parts (root, crown, trunk) and healthy from a phytosanitary point of view.
