Series of Articles on Farmland Investing

GreenWorld have always believed that farmland and agriculture investments are an excellent alternative asset class that provides diversity from a traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds.  We recently have written a series of articles published on Technorati that provide an overview of agricultural land investing:

Farmland Investments:  A Unique Asset Class Becomes Available to Individuals

Arable Land Shortage and the Case for Farmland and Agriculture Investments

Farmland Set to Profit as Wheat Prices Soar

If you are interested in investing in farmland, please consider our two latest opportunities:

European Farmland Investment

African Farmland Investment

Both of these projects are directed at retail investors as they have low minimum requirements and are purely passive investments where the project manager handles everything from planting of the crop to harvesting to sale.  Investors are paid regular yearly dividend income, plus receive any appreciation in the value of the land when they sell their investments.

Forestry Investment in Bamboo Provides High Yield Dividends and a Hedge Against Inflation

Investing in socially responsible Bamboo
Alternative Bamboo Investments for High Dividend Yields
As markets continue to gyrate and fear runs high over the fate of the Eurozone, it is natural that investors might want to consider alternative investments that are uncorrelated to stocks.  One excellent option to consider are alternative bamboo investments.   Bank savings rates are extremely low, and high dividend shares still still expose you to daily stock market risk.  However, if you invest in bamboo, you get the income of a dividend stock or high-yield bond, but without the daily fluctuations in the share price.   

Bamboo starts out paying a yearly income of approximately 5%, and it ends up growing to as high as 30% by the end of the 15 year term of the investment.  On current projections, it is quite possible that a bamboo investment could produce a total return of around 400%-500% over the 15 year term of the investment.  
Finally, the global market for bamboo products is expected to double from US$10 billion to US$20 billion  in the next five years alone, as bamboo is used in everything from flooring to hangars or coat racks, bamboo toys, and even in fiber.  For investors looking to diversify away from stocks, to obtain access to a rapidly growing global market, and to obtain extremely high dividend yields over a sustained period, bamboo as an investment is well worth considering.
