The results show that active limestone had a positive and very significant impact on the production of carpophores in T.
Regarding the study of limestone, a simple, positive, and very significant correlation was found between the percentage of active limestone in the surface horizons and the production of Tuber melanosporum carpophores.
In summary, conventional soil properties (granulometric texture, pH, calcareous fractions, organic carbon, total nitrogen, exchangeable cations) have a limited impact on the production of Tuber melanosporum carpophores, as they account for only 27% of production variance.
