Start a Bamboo Farm

A bamboo farm once started could continue to exist for years on and give you some form of residual income. However, starting one needs extensive planning and preparation. Our guide can help you get ready to propagate bamboos commercially. Read on and discover important information to help you get started.

Bamboos are employed for a variety of uses, perhaps for every article and utility anyone can think of? as an ornament, food, structural support and material for making items from musical instrument to kitchen utensils.

bamboo farming

It is native to the tropics, but some are also tolerant of cold climate. If you want to start a bamboo farm, you would need space and extensive planning to propagate it commercially. What you will spend in establishing a bamboo farm will depend on the species you want to raise.

There are more than 1,000 species of bamboo to choose from. Some can be a foot short while others could grow to more than 100 feet. Your capital outlay will also depend on the state of the land you want to cultivate. If it needs additional tilling and soil conditioning, you would have to spend more.

Land Preparation: Before planting bamboo seedlings, test the condition of your soil, particularly for acidity. Bamboos grow best in slightly acidic soil. It may be that you would need to put in lime to adjust its pH level to a degree most suitable for bamboo growing.

Plantation: You can have bamboos for planting by growing them yourselves from a seed, using node cuttings or potted bamboo. Seeds are obtained from outside the U.S. and then grown in greenhouses. Bamboo starter plants, meanwhile, are sold from $25 to more than $100. To make sure the bamboo variety you’ve chosen is suited to your place’s climate and soil, grow it on a small scale first.

Planting bamboos should follow recommended specifications, particularly with regards to spacing. Some farms use CAD program and hire computer technician to measure distances so as to draw a master plan that includes the quantity and appropriate placement of bamboo groves, as well as irrigation system design.

Maintenance: Bamboos are drought tolerant and resistant to insects and diseases. But it may be that the variety you are growing needs special care. Learn what specific requirements your plant needs, for example, how much water does it need for a given period. Generally, bamboos need watering once or twice a week in the first few months. Also think about leaves cutting and pruning as your plantation grows.

Harvesting: Bamboos take years to grow. It will take about six years before you can have your first harvest, which means you would have to wait that long to earn from your investment. And capital outlays are usually big at the start. After the first commercial harvest, however, cuttings will be done annually and could continue for 50 years with only maintenance required on your part. An internal rate of return for a bamboo plantation is 31%.

    I have begun a Bamboo farm project that will collect 1,900 metric tons of carbon per year. This project was started for the sole reason of receiving payment for carbon offsets. How do I offer these offsets for sale on the carbon trading markets? Phyllostachys pubescens (Moso Bamboo) was chosen for many reasons including: growth rate, type of soil, topography, temperature, rainfall and others.

Particular to NC we have lost many textile jobs and I was pleasantly surprised that there is a textile component to bamboo. Its great to offer (timber/textiles) I would like more information on type of bamboo that would grow well in my area focusing on timber and textile species, type of equipment needed to plant cultivate and harvest and field layout that would maximize production. Further, if you have any numbers of pounds/tons per acre can be produced by said types as well. I have about 100ac. to plant so let's get this thing started!

Our plan is to buy 10-20 acres in oregon to plant bamboo for timber production and shoot production. I have done a lot of research. But I guess I would like to know if we get this started in the next year or two, can we make enough to sustain our family of four. We would prefer to live on the same land the bamboo is planted on.

  • Will said on October 22, 2010
    I have a project for my university. My project is to propose a bamboo plantation on the banks of the Yumuna river in Agra India. I am working alongside the N.G.O CURE for this trip. My idea was to grow the bamboo to be harvested as a building material and mainly to use the fibres to produce bags to be sold in London, to create a small revenue for the slum population of Agra. Unfortunately I have no idea about the growing, cultivating, harvesting and treatment of bamboo! I would love to talk to anyone about this and see if you have had any success. And if you could you please tell me what sort of bamboo would be ideal for the eventual harvesting for building materials and for the extraction of fibres to make into bags. Any information you might have on equipment needed to harvest. and possibly the equipment that might be needed to process the bamboo into the fibres needed to make bags would be fantastic! This will be a very very small scale operation, with a very limited amount of space to grow and process the bamboo. I hope you can help me, this project is very exciting for me and has the potential to be a great success. Kind regards, Will Pohl, my email is pohl.will@gmail.com, thanks

  • David Benfield said on December 8, 2010
    outside of Durham, NC. We just started a bamboo farm last week with 3 different groves: Moso, Henon, and Sweetshoot. We chose those varieties for both shoot and pole production, and have several options for revenue streams. We aren't anticipating much harvest until 7-10 years for the Sweetshoot or Henon, and probably 10-15 years for the Moso. We planted 7 plants sized 5'-8' for each grove with swales providing primary irrigation. We will be planting more in the Spring. You can email me for more info: david@brightsidebamboo.com.

  • Raghunath expert adviser said on April 25, 2011

    @O R Maxey, Hello O R Maxey, Well bamboo farming is a flexible source of income. You can harvest bamboo in early summer and spring. One main advantage is no need to replant it every year it will automatically replant from the root. It requires hot weather to grow better. So i think FL/TX has better weather for bamboo farming. Soil moisture is most important, the land should be well drained. The best soil for bamboo is loam soil or marly soil. More information can be found here.
