Model demonstration sites with nurseries

CIBART develops bamboo resources through nurseries, model plots and manages existing clumps through training of farmers on better management techniques. Model plots are for showing farmers how to raise bamboo plantations and the additional income bamboo can give them. Formal training on plantation, management, harvesting, nursery raising, and plants protection are conducted in these demonstration plots.

CIBART has established nurseries in Ukai and Navsari in Gujarat and Maknipurwa in Uttar Pradesh. Species suitable to location and which have local applications have been procured for those nurseries. Nurseries in Ukai, Manpur, Gujarat and Maknipurwa, Uttar Pradesh have raised over 75,000 tissue-culture Bambusa balcooaplants, 10,000 Bambusa bambos seedlings, 3,000 Bambusa pallida seedlings, 3,000 Dendrocalamus strictus seedlings and 200 Dendrocalamusbrandisii seedlings. CIBART ensured that the villages selected for nursery setting have trainees who have completed on-job training programmes to support persons running the nurseries. Field workshops to demonstrate better nursery management practices are conducted for those interested in establishing community nurseries.
