Consideration of bamboo farming .
These are the most preferred for they attain large sizes that are more desirable
Most bamboos are extremely drought-tolerant once established, although they will spread faster and attain larger size with supplemental irrigation during extended dry periods. Although the soil still needs to be well-drained, temporary flooding is generally okey and some bamboos perform better than others on sites that remain water-logged. For drier sites or larger-scale plantings, we recommend supplemental irrigation for at least the first year to get the plants established and off to a good start.
Bamboo Species Selection
The investor is advised to select the right bamboo for his goals. If interested in only producing poles and potentially market bamboo for industrial uses in the future, then one of the larger timber bamboos such as Phyllostachys edulis (Moso) have better wood quality and are more desirable from an industrial standpoint.
Use proper distance between one crop to the other and the rows. Please note that bamboo used for privacy screens is usually planted on a closer spacing (5-8ft. apart), something to consider if your production groves are also intended to serve this purpose and you need a screen sooner rather than later
With bamboo, as with most perennial crops, it will be a few years before your first harvest. Your first harvest is 3-4 years. Kindly note that bamboo is very invasive and after the initial harvest, the subsequent yields increases consistently every year with a productivity life of years.
