In nature, bamboo is found in wild and rarely found in proper cultivation. Bamboo being fastest growing plant, it demands best agronomy and agricultural practises to realise bamboo's full yield potential. Bamboo can be cultivated as a crop involving best agronomical practises, adequate supply of nutrient in the form of fertilizer, regular application of water through drip irrigation, timely weeding, pruning, soil earthing up and harvesting at the optimum clump and culm age.
The method of cultivation gets altered as per soil condition, direct farming of bamboo species and end use of bamboo. The spacing between bamboo plants within a row and spacing between two rows of bamboo also decided based on purpose for which bamboo is cultivated.
In general, wider spacing between bamboo is adopted for tall growing bamboo as well as when bamboo is cultivated for larger diameter. It is used in construction, strip board, special furniture etc.
