Abstract: India is one of the leading countries of the world, second only to China, in bamboo production with a figure of 32.3 million tonnes/year. Bamboo species cover an area of around 10.03 million hectares, which contribute 12.8% of the total forest cover of the country. In bamboo diversity India ranks third i.e. next to China (300 species) and Japan (237 species). More than 70 genera and 1,200 species of bamboo have been described, but only a few are grown commercially for their shoots.
