LA SANIDAD EN TRUFICULTURA: Guía de identificación de agentes nocivos en la truficultura
This new book has just been released this month. For the first time a book about the main pests of the truffles, but mainly with technical sheets with up to 80 pests and diseases of Quercus ilex host tree in Spain.
We would like to thank to the coordinators of this book to invite the members or Micofora team to join to write a couple of chapters.
It will be so useful to technicians and truffle growers in order to distinguish the pathogens in our orchards and fight diseases!
Note anyhow that most chemical products commonly used in other crops are not registered to be used for oaks not for truffles, so even they could be effective, their use can not be legal in truffle plantations.
The book is now just printed in spanish. I don’t think an english version will be printed as most of these pests are not found in other countries overseas where truffles are being grown, but just in the mediterranean area.
You can get it at the Teruel Truffle Growers Association site: http://trufadeteruel.com/blog/la-sanidad-en-truficultura-guia-de-identificacion-de-agentes-nocivos-en-la-truficultura/
for 25€ plus shipping costs.
