Breakthrough Science For a Sustainable Bamboo Industry
Booshoot is a biotechnology company with a passion for the natural world. This passion propelled nearly a decade of intensive scientific research that resulted in the groundbreaking technical capacity to rapidly and reliably propagate bamboo – without genetic modification.
When Booshoot grew its first bamboo plants by tissue culture in 2004, a powerful, renewable natural resource was born. Until then, it had not been possible to mass-produce bamboo. But with Booshoot’s scientific breakthrough, the world had an ecologically beneficial sustainable fiber for the large-scale production of pulp, paper, textiles, hardwood, and so much more.
Founded in 1998 by Jackie Heinricher, Booshoot has built a strong reputation as the world’s leading producer of bamboo plants, supplying a wide variety of high quality bamboos for wholesalers in the ornamental bamboo market, as well as food crop starts for agricultural growers.
Today, utilizing its proprietary Provitro™ technology, Booshoot is producing millions of commercially valuable timber bamboo starts that can be grown domestically, globally, and close to your business facilities.
