Author(s): MH Amlani, MB Tandel, VM Prajapati, JG Pathak and LK Behera
The present investigation was carried out at Singalkhanch, Ukai, Tapi, Gujarat. The experiment comprised of 15 species of bamboo viz., Dendrocalamus asper, Bambusa balcooa, Bambusa tulda, Dendrocalamus stocksii, Bambusa nutans, Bambusa vulgaris (Green), Bambusa vulgaris (Yellow), Gigantochloa atroviolacea (Java Black - Bamboo), Bambusa bamboos, Dendrocalamus strictus, Bambusa polymorpha, Schizostachym pergracile, Melocanna bambusoides, Bambusa jantiana and Schizostachyum dullooa. This experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) comprising of fifteen species of bamboo as treatment and three replications. Among the growth parameters bamboo species with the maximum value were found as in Bambusa bambos for culm diameter at breast height (7.75 cm); Bambusa vulgaris (Green) for culm height (17.73 m) and clump height (18.80 m); Bambusa polymorpha for internodal length (86.25 cm); Schizostachyum dullooa for culms per clump (105); Melocanna bambusoides for clump girth (10.80 m) and leaf area (76.31 cm2); Bambusa balcooa for leaf length (23.73 cm) and leaf width (4.61 cm). In the trial, there was definite variation found for growth parameters among different species of bamboos in South Gujarat conditions
