Bamboo plantation to be people's movement: DC

Latur, Jan 8 (UNI) District Collector Prithviraj B.P. on Saturday said that the district administration would help to make sure Bamboo plantation becomes people's movement and create a new bamboo pattern for Latur.
He was speaking on the occasion of inauguration of bamboo cultivation on 100 acres land in Salgara village on the banks of Manjra river under Project on Climate Resilient Agriculture (POCRA) scheme.
He said that Latur district has the lowest tree cover in the state at less than one percent. In order to increase it, bamboo should be planted in large quantities as it is now considered to be one of the most important trees in water management, giving good economic returns and providing most of the oxygen we need to survive.
