    A grower in Idaho has planted trees in close proximity that resemble hedgerows. The density of the growth makes harvesting with dogs very difficult.

    T.Mel requires open canopy so it is not recommended.

    I am using it to clear rocks from the new planting area and it saved a lot of back breaking labor. I have a good video of it in use if I could post it working.

    I do not believe we can change the labeling methods of the world. Foreign producers are not going to follow our lead and will continue to ship product into North America labeled Black Truffle that is not T-Melanosporum. This problem will not be resolved because NATGA says so, but, as an organization, we should have our own method to ensure credibility within our member organization. The NATGA label will become associated with quality and add value to the member/grower.

    When possible, the full nomenclature, place of origin, and date harvested should be on the label. If label space does not allow the full name to be printed, then an abbreviated version of the full name can be used.
