Producing bamboo for different purposes is therefore cost-effective and sustainable, as this grass has a very good yield per hectare. With these characteristics in mind, one can understand why farming this grass does not pressure the region for extensive and damaging land extensions. Twice as good as trees It is important to note that Bamboos are not uprooted during harvest which means soils are preserved and soil erosion prevented.
