This report on bamboo species’ site suitability matching for Uganda is expected to identify the exotic bamboo species currently planted in the country and inform actors across the bamboo value chain about their growth performance and suitability for being planted in different agro-ecological zones (AEZs). The report captures the origin of each bamboo species, its growth performance in its native range and in different AEZs where it is currently grown in Uganda, and its potential for ecological and socio-economic utilization in different parts of the country. This report is intended to serve as a guide for farmers, foresters, and extension agents in matching each bamboo species to its most suitable AEZ in Uganda. The guide is expected to provide the confidence needed by bamboo growers and value-chain actors in decision-making on bamboo production and utilization on a commercial scale.
