About Bamboo Nursery

 

Bamboo is the most common Non timber Forest Produce (NTFP) found in India. It occupies more than 25% share among NTFP.

 

NTFP division started nursery at Taipu during the year 2007-08 by nodal cutting followed by macro proliferation. During the year 2007-08 National Bamboo Mission(NBM) funded Rs 2.73 Lakh for production of 50,000 bamboo seedlings/cuttings. Based on the guidelines of National Bamboo Mission (NBM) nine species have been raised and 18,650 nos have been distributed

 

During the Year 2006-07 more than 10,000 bamboo cuttings were supplied to different Divisions of North Bengal and during 2007-08, this amounts to more than 27,000. During 2008-09(upto November) 18,650 cuttings and seedlings of bamboo species have been given to Darjeeling Division and Kurseong Division of Hill Circle for creation of plantation

FIELD TRIAL OF MACRO-PROLIFERATED BAMBOO PROPAGULES
2007 PLANTATION AT TUKRIAJHAR

The Macro-proliferated bamboo cuttings of Bambusa vulgaris and Bambusa nutans have been planted in the plantation since 2006-07.

 

Our observation shows it has good survival rate in suitable areas. Probably this is the first large scale field trial of macro-proliferated cuttings of bamboo after Dr K C Koshi, TBGRI

2008 PLANTATION AT TUKRIAJHAR
   

BAMBOO RHIZOME NURSERY

 

5000 rhizomes have of recommended species of NBM have been planted  at Taipu with the objective to supply bamboo for production of bamboo cuttings and bamboo rhizomes in coming years

   

BAMBOO WITH SARPAGANDHA AS INTER-CROP

 

Bambusa nutans(Makla) bans is relatively growing slow in comparison to other sp planted here. Rauwolfia serpentina (which give economic yield by two years) have been tried as intercrop in between bamboo. Objective of this experiment is to use available unutilized space  between two rows of bamboo for initial  two years. Same experiment also tried with Asparagus recemosus.
