The Cultivation of the Bamboo

The Bamboo Plantation in Italy

OnlyMoso Nurseries provides certified and quality bamboo plants for the realization of plantations dedicated to the production of culms, sprouts and biomass.

The giant Bamboo OnlyMoso® plants are selected in our nurseries and guaranteed by the continuous research that the company carries out on the development of bamboo. We are able to select the best qualities that are most suitable for cultivation on our territory also using the advice of agronomists and Chinese professors with whom we constantly control the nurseries and the growth and development of plantations

For cultivation we recommend three variants of plant sixths:
  • OnlyMoso® MOSO D-600
    Density 600 plants/Ha, Planting area 4,00 x 4,17
  • OnlyMoso® MOSO D-1200
    Density 1200 plants/Ha, Planting area 3,00 x 2,87
  • OnlyMoso® MOSO D-1800
    Density 1800 plants/Ha, Planting area 3,00 x 1,85
  • OnlyMoso® MOSO D-2500
    Density 2500 plants/Ha, Planting area 3,00 x 1,33

The sixth planting with more density of plants anticipates a few years the achievement of full productivity of the child. In the long term, productivity per hectare will be the same regardless of the planting used at the start.

We provide advice and assistance for the plant and childcare to ensure the best productivity and the safe return on investment. In addition, thanks to the connection with the Consorzio Bambù Italia, we ensure a careful exchange for the marketing of products (sprouts and wood).


Comprehensive support is provided before and during the child implantation to achieve optimum productivity and profitability. Our business advice is developed in several points and ranges from plant design to plant development and subsequent care.


How is cultivation done?

The bambuseto, being a grass, requires the same working of the soil that is done for a wheat field.

Despite the reputation of invasiveness of the plant, to effectively contain the spread of bamboo rhizomes it is enough to surround the cultivated plot with a moat of about 60-70 cm. The rhizomes do not exceed this depth and a real natural barrier is created that will not be exceeded. Moreover, cutting the shoots that grow on the ditch blocks the lateral growth.

  • The bamboo plantation self-regulates in the number of culms that reach full growth, because it automatically defines the number of canes he can feed.
  • The harvest of the shoots represents a healthy pruning.
  • For the bamboo forest, leaf renewal is a natural mulch that protects the root system from frost and retains the right degree of soil moisture. Over time the foliage is transformed into humus that nourishes the baby in a virtuous and sustainable cycle.
Our technicians always recommend the best solution for plant design:
  • They study the tracing of paths to create passable lanes of about 3/4 meters suitable for transporting production with tractors and trolleys;
  • They indicate and design the type of irrigation for the initial plant. In fact, with the right irrigation, the seedlings will develop more quickly and will lay the foundations for optimal production;
  • They recommend the initial mulching that allows a saving of water and protection for young jets.
A bamboo forest OnlyMoso reaches maturity between 5 and 10 years depending on climatic conditions, soil and type of cultivation. After the first 3-4 years the first sprouts are harvested. In presence of particular favorable seasons, the harvesting of the shoots can take place even after only 2 years.
