Some propagation techniques of Malayan bamboo production

B. N. Nuertey

Abstract




Investigations carried out at the Oil Palm Research Institute, Kusi on some propagation techniques of Malayan bamboo production confirmed cuttings as preferred planting materials over the suckers. It was also observed that the upper end setts of the bamboo cuttings sprouted better than the lower end setts. The number of tillers per cluster from plants nursed and transplanted to the field after four months was significantly higher by the 30th month after planting than for plants for which cuttings were planted directly in the field.
