Abstract

Sixty bamboo culms were harvested from six bamboo clumps and
were cut into three portions namely; basal, middle and top portions.
Bamboo samples were then granulated into wood meal and those
retained on the 60 BS mesh sieve were used in the study to determine
the ash and silica content. Age was found to significantly affect the
ash and silica content. However, bamboo portion showed no
significant effect.
