    Yes, it can. However, it does depend where it is being farmed because of the climate that needs to be present in order for bamboo to thrive. Currently, temperate bamboo can be grown in USDA farm zones 7 and 8, where the minimum temperature does not drop below 5 degrees. There is an American Bamboo society, which has introduced many new species of bamboo into the US since 1980. Bamboo in all stages of its growth can be very useful to farmers in terms of income production, livestock, poultry, fertilization, reducing water and wind erosion, and emptying manure lagoons.
