We’re pleased to announce that dozens of growers have filled out the survey and the database is now growing. We are well on our way to answering a series of pressing questions for growers. Based upon the growers feedback we are launching a revised version that will be more user friendly. In addition we will be introducing the database website that will be accessible to all survey participants.
[Public] A team of researchers are conducting a survey of the North American Truffle Industry.
NATGA sees this project as a way to assess the size of our industry, when and where we are productive, growing conditions that work (or don’t work).
We need this data to drive research priorities and funding; and eventually marketing strategies for the industry. In many ways, it is also the beginning of an economic impact study. We need this information before we engage government or private entities for research and marketing funding and assistance.
