Storage Structure

The mechanical properties of Lantana have been utilized for making utility items. In rural areas, in the wake of poor purchasing power, the rural community makes domestic items out of the wood available around. Bamboo has been the major wood used in the past. Since Lantana has woody properties it can also be used to make such domestic articles. Grain storage, water storage baskets can be made from Lantana.
