Weed management and irrigation are key treatments in emerging black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) cultivation
Results show that adequate weed control improves root and shoot dry weight while fertilizer and irrigation treatments did not influence plant growth, and T. melanosporum remained the dominant fungal symbiont, despite the presence of 14 other ectomycorrhizal morphotypes from these sites.
The Socioeconomic Impact of Truffle Cultivation in Rural Spain1
The Socioeconomic Impact of Truffle Cultivation in Rural Spain. Commercial black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) plantations have been promoted in Europe with the intention of benefiting rural economies
Economically profitable post fire restoration with black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) producing plantations
Results suggest that reforestation with T. melanosporum-inoculated seedlings can be successful following forest fires and highlights the competitiveness of this fungus within the ECM community in these soils.
Weed control modifies Tuber melanosporum mycelial expansion in young oak plantations
The effects of double-layer white mulch on herbaceous cover, soil temperature, reflected light, and the expansion of T. melanosporum bring us closer to being able to substitute traditional tilling of truffle orchards for the less expensive mulching treatments.
Time and dose of irrigation impact Tuber melanosporum ectomycorrhiza proliferation and growth of Quercus ilex seedling hosts in young black truffle orchards
The results suggest that a moderate irrigation dose promotes seedling growth and number offine root tips per unit of fine root length, which may be potentially colonized by T. melanosporum.
Pattern of Tuber melanosporum extramatrical mycelium expansion over a 20-year chronosequence in Quercus ilex-truffle orchards
This study used a chronosequence design to study the expansion pattern of this fungus as the host tree grows, and hypothesize that this expansion can be estimated by monitoring T. melanosporum DNA from soil beneath host trees of different ages and at different distances from the trunk of the trees.
A procedure for preparing forecasts of airport traffic is presented, and its use is illustrated through application to Mexico City. The underlying objectives are to identify the principal factors
Groundwaters in northern of Portugal: geographical and geological settings, hydrochemical typologies and exploitations
The northern Portugal area is rich in groundwaters, particularly in mineral waters and fresh waters. This is also the area where is great the diversity of hydrochemical typologies. This typologies
