  • Information required for new Bamboo plantation

    A BIG HELLO to all the experts on this site.

    I am planning to develop a 15 acre plot with Bamboo plantation. I searched this whole forum but could not find the required details, hence posting a new topic.

    Can someone please provide the following information with specific details and NOT just high level information:

    1. How many plants can be grown per acre of land? I assume its 600 plants can be planted which may grow into more than 50 sticks per plant after say 10 years. Please confirm my understanding?
    2. What is the species I should go for yield as mentioned above?
    3. What is the spacing I should consider between plants that provides best returns?
    4. What is the rate of increase in Bamboo sticks per year? I mean how may sticks can I expect to harvest per year - year after year - after the initial 3 years? I have realized the first harvesting can be done after 3 years of cultivation.
    5. Please suggest plants for intercropping with Bamboo, in terms of better yield for Bamboo as well as better rate of return with the intercrop in the first 5 years?
    6 Can you provide specifics of subsidy and individual can get from NABARD or other government agency for such Bamboo plantation? Request for specifics please and not just general details.
    7. Can I get Loan for the plantation expenses with a repayment relief during the initial gestation period and from where and how much?

    I know the questions are too many and too specific, but I am banking on you guys as I know I will get answers to all my questions.

    Thanks in Advance.
