The objective of the present work is therefore to explain more fully the impact of soil on the productivity of Tuber melanosporum carpophores through a quantitative statistical estimation of the influence of conventional surface horizon properties (granulometric texture, pH, calcareous fractions, organic carbon, total nitrogen, exchangeable cations).
The maximum annual production of carpophores in Tuber melanosporum brules was evaluated as an expression of the greatest quantity (in g) of fresh carpophores picked that year.
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.
