Truffle-inoculated loblolly pine seedlings

Co-cropping truffles with loblolly pine can provide growers with an additional $110,000 of income per acre over the truffle production cycle.  Loblolly pine forests have better survival rates against factors such as drought and other weather extremes when they are highly mycorrhized. Mycorrhiza Biotech uses patent-pending micro-propagation and biotechnology protocols to propagate loblolly pine seedlings inoculated with Tuber borchii.   We use DNA-based techniques to confirm the presence and level of mycorrhization. Once the presence of Tuber borchii is confirmed they are ready for planting in the prepared site. The process from germination to planting takes between nine and twelve months.
