Stock Market Truffles in the world

The hunt

To unearth a truffle, truffle hunters or trifolao work together with their dogs that, after being trained, are able to find truffles by detecting the smell through their keen noses.

Truffle hunters must possess a licence which can be obtained by paying an annual fee. There are harvest calendars for each type of truffle which vary according to the region. When sniffing a truffle in the woods, dogs will alert the hunter who will very gently unearth it by means of a specific hand rake.

In order to ensure the formation of new rootlets (and subsequently mycorrhizae) the hunter must carefully rearrange the soil he removed, so that a new fruiting body may form.
