A Technical / Economic analysis of a bamboo plantation was developed, using best available literature sources, input from a plantation owner, and a common methodology of financial analysis for biomass plantations.  Major financial drivers, in order of importance, were (1) Delivered price per BDT of bamboo chips received from a pulp producer (range of $70-$80 per BDT evaluated) (2); Bamboo growth rate (range of 10-25 Bone Dry Tons per Acre per Year); (3) Cost of land to the investor, $ per Acre (range of $800-$1,200 examined).  Land purchase versus land rental was superior, all other parameters equal.
