Various species of truffle have been produced in plantations (truffières - pronounced true-fee-airs) since the early 1800s.  New techniques introduced in the 1970s made the cultivation of truffles and, more recently, other ectomycorrhizal mushrooms, somewhat more predictable. Even so for a wide variety of reasons many plantations never produce.  Consequently, investing in the cultivation of truffles and other ectomycorrhizal mushrooms must still be regarded as a speculative venture and potentially high-risk.
