Improving productivity of a previously unmanaged Bambusa blumeana plantation for culms and shoots in Ilocos Norte, the Philippines

, : Improving productivity of a previously unmanaged Bambusa blumeana plantation for culms and shoots in Ilocos Norte, the Philippines. Aciar Proceedings Series: 9, 24-35

The productivity of a previously unmanaged <i>Bambusa blumeana</i> (kawayan tinik) plantation was assessed over 5 years. We studied the combined effects of cleaning, irrigation, application of inorganic fertiliser, mulch and organic matter, and varying culm density regimes on the production of good-quality culms (poles) and shoots. Generally, irrigation significantly improved the productivity index, shoot emergence and number of shoots per clump.
