[Webinar] Gregory Bonito: Truffle Farms of North America Databasing Project – Creating a resource for the North American Truffle Industry

November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

View Recording (Public Access)

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.
