Transfer of Technology Bamboo Shoot Production, Processing and Marketing from China to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka

Bamboo shoots are an important and popular nutrient in China, Japan and Southeast Asia. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka produce bamboo shoots that are similar to the once in South China. Due to a lack of processing technologies, their current bamboo shoot market and possible export is far below its potential. To up-scale this potential, technologies from China on bamboo shoot cultivation and processing mechanisms were introduced such as through the establishment of processing plants and the provision of technical training. In total more than 170 ha of bamboo shoot plantations were established.
