Commercial weight tables for bamboo (Bambusa bambos) for different clump-diameters are presented in this paper. As part of a sample survey of bamboo growing stock in the forests of Kerala, measurements were made in 610 clumps and culms enumerated. Using the data on commercial weight of green culms and clump-diameters, different weight prediction equations were estimated. Based on the best fitting equation, a commercial weight table for green culms in a clump was generated for different clump diameters. Similarly, a commercial weight table for all culms (including the dry ones in green weight equivalent) was also generated. The weight tables can be used directly for obtaining the commercial weight of culms in a standing clump when the clump-diameter is known. These tables are ready to use and facilitate making quick estimates of bamboo growing stock in forests.
