Best Country to Grow Bamboo in Central America
I currently have invested in El Salvador in softwoods, but want to diversify into bamboo plantations, so what's the best place/country to invest, grow and process Guadua bamboo; Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua or Costa Rica?
Stephane from Guadua Bamboo replied:
Essentially Guadua angustifolia can grow in all of Central America, but it is key to:
- Have high quality planting materials available.
- Find the best site location in terms of soil and climate conditions.
- Have a professional team with experience in bamboo cultivation.
- Have access to a wide network of clients for the sales of your crop or value added product.
Perhaps the question becomes: where is there an active market to sell your bamboo and what prices can you get?...
