Bamboo is the fastest growing plant known to man and therefore highly renewable. It has an incredible ability to absorb water and takes just 3 months to grow to its maximum height. It spreads rapidly, covering areas in a short space of time.
Because of Bamboos rapid growth and ability to spread, not only does bamboo provide the basis for a number of environmentally friendly products, it also improves soil quality in areas that have been overfarmed or suffered erosion.
Because Bamboo is naturally abundant, fertilisers, pesticides or fungicides arent needed, This means Bamboo is an Organic crop good for the farmers and good for the planet.
The yield you get from 1 acre of Bamboo is 10 times greater than the yield you get from cotton and water requirement for Bamboo is mainly from what falls, whereas cotton requires vast amounts of valuable water.
