Crop Science & Production (CSP) Research Projects

MAHUPU PROJECT

"Propagation and processing of the desert truffle (Kalahari tuber (Terfezia) pfeilii)”

The project aims at addressing the dwindling yields of the Kalahari desert truffle due to drought, overgrazing and overexploitation. The project is assessing various tree species and curcubits as symbionts of the truffle fungus and to assess the effect of fencing to reduce overgrazing and supplemental irrigation on truffle yields in the field. It is funded by the BCA RPC.
