Increasing the forest and vegetation covers could mitigate the global warming and its allied problems. In this study, Bambusa vulgaris raised in 3/4 of an acre of a farm land in Aaarupatti village of Dharmangalam Taluk of Salem District in Tamil Nadu, India mustered profit for a farmer. The trained farmer planted 111 seedlings during 2004 and obtained 1050 culms with the net income of Rs. 52, 500 per annum. This was made possible as the Forestry Extension Centre, Salem District trained the farmer for bamboo cultivation and also educated about its utility value.
