CONVITE
para estudantes, técnicos, agricultores, comunidade da UFSC e comunidade interessada:

II CURSO DE CULTIVO E MANEJO DE BAMBU

Teórico e prático

mais informações abaixo:

Data – 26 de março de 2011 das 9 as 18h

Instrutor: Eng. Florestal Thiago M. Greco

Certificado pela UFSC

DESCONTO PARA ESTUDANTES DA UFSC! (se informe junto ao contato de inscrições)

O bambu tem uma demanda crescente por produtos valorizados e a produção não está dando conta de atender o mercado consumidor: faltam produtores qualificados!

Hoje um hectare de bambu pode resgatar muito carbono com retorno garantido e anual a partir do oitavo ano (o que compensa mais facilmente possíveis dificuldades, diferente de outras espécies madeireiras). A partir de então é possível colher anualmente na mesma área com manejo adequado. Nesta área pode-se colher anualmente algo próximo de quatro carretas com 600 colmos, pagando-se (por baixo hoje) R$7,00 por colmo, se for bem manejado e escolhidas as espécies adequadas.

Existem diversas outras possibilidades como plantio para produzir brotos para alimentação e outros usos diretos: móveis, construções, paisagismo, instrumentos musicais, ferramentas, recuperação e preservação do solo, alimentos para animais, associações com outras espécies, geração de energia, fabricação de carvão, tratamentos de esgotos e efluentes líquidos, etc.
.
Neste sentido convidamos você a participar deste Curso e iniciar seu contato com esta cultura proeminente!

Bamboo Plantation and Management Course

BAMBOO PLANTATION AND MANAGEMENT COURSE

Theoretical and practical

The Brazilian bamboo market has a growing demand for quality products and production is not keeping up in serving the consumers: there is a lack of qualified producers! Today one hectare of bamboo can yield a lot of carbon with a guaranteed annual return after the eighth year (compensating easily possible difficulties, different from other wood species). Nearly four truckloads, each with 600 culms, can be harvested annually at a price of R$ 7.00 per culm (low estimate), if well managed and selecting the appropriate species.

There are several other possibilities such as the production of edible bamboo shoots and other direct uses: furniture, construction, landscaping, musical instruments, tools, soil remediation, animal feed, associations with other species, among others.

To that purpose Santa Catarina Bamboo Association – BambuSCwww.bambusc.org.br, along with UFSC, through the Ressacada Research Farm, will promote a series of bamboo training courses, starting with the present one (see poster below with details and more information in portuguese), with the aim to create the first Bambusetum of Santa Catarina, and you can be part of this story.

Date: Saturday June 12th , 2010

Address: Ressacada Research Farm – UFSC – Neighbourhood Tapera – Florianópolis/SC – Brazil

Registration and information: contact Mr. Hans Kleine (BambuSC) on tel. +55 (48) 3338-2087 or e-mail
