Investing in Bamboo

Eco BambooLot in Nicaragua

Eco BambooLot in Nicaragua

I have been approached by an agent who aggressively wants to sell me 1.23 acres of bamboo plantation with free title to the land in a company named EcobambooLot in Nicaragua. They are projecting positive cash flow in the 3rd year after ownership and successively growing then on. The upfront cost including the maintenance fee is $11,000. Starting in the 3rd year the maintenance fee is 16% of the revenue from sale of crop.


Minimum Acreage for a Profitable Bamboo Plantation

Minimum Acreage for a Profitable Bamboo Plantation

What is the minimium area to at least have a profit for bamboo, especially if you only grow for poles? When can you expect income for pole production, in a small scale level? Yes, there is money in bamboo, but it is the flooring and other stuff already, which for sure small farmers can't afford to set up such facilities. So, again what is the minimum area? Thanks. This site is very helpful.
