The humid agroclimatic conditions of Kerala, India permit the cultivation of an array of bamboo species of which Dendrocalamus strictus Roxb. (Nees.) is an important one on account of its high growth rate and multiple uses. Stand density, a potential tool in controlling the productivity of woody ecosystems, its effect on growth and root distribution patterns may provide a better understanding of productivity optimization especially when bamboo-based intercropping options are considered. Growth… CONTINUE READING
