The rural people of Assam are not aware to use this valuable gift in a protected and prevented manner and only use some non chemical i. e. traditional method of preservation to protect bamboo from bio degradation. These methods are very popular among the rural masses because, these can be carried out without any special equipments and technical knowhow.
