Energy Crop Field Project

Clenergen was successful in receiving approval to import its high yielding strain of bamboo from India. This is the first time in the country’s history that a tissue culture strain of bamboo has been approved for importation. The bamboo saplings were shipped in net potted bags and then re-planted upon arrival, where they will be hardened for 12 weeks under controlled conditions at the Romblon State University (RSU).

The 10 acre energy crop demonstration site is located 15 minutes from RSU on Romblon Island. The Island is 45 minute flight from Manila. The land is climatically suited for the cultivation of bamboo and Melia dubia. The saplings are being planted at high density and adopt various spacing plans. There is an average rainfall of over 2500mm per annum in this region.
