Bamboo has many practical uses on the farm.

To control the running bamboos, such as
Phyllostachys, you can buy and install the
edging devices known as bamboo root barrier.

And you can sell edible bamboo shoots at the
Farmers Market.... especially those serving
Asian populations.

Just recently I learned that Bamboo Select is
specializing in the hardy clump-forming
"Fargesia" species.
