To evaluate the ability of a farm in Mexico to cultivate truffles, transfer technology to produce mycorrhizal plant, assess the feasibility of a range of local pine (Pinus cembroides) for cultivation of Tuber bochii and make a pilot plantation.


In a first phase we analyzed the potential of the farm to grow truffles. Secondly we selected the best host tree and the kind of truffles that could best adapted to the conditions of the farm, ie with Pinus pinea and Pinus cembroides mycorrhized with Tuber borchii. Finally truffle trees were planted in the field.
