Using agricultural residues for industrial purposes is a much more environmentally friendly practice than many residue disposal methods currently in use Agricultural residues are an excellent alternative to using virgin wood fiber for many reasons. Aside from their abundance and renewability, using agricultural residues will benefit farmers, industry and human health and the environment. Wheat straw, for example, is being grown at yields of between 1-3 tons per acre. This income is a boon to farmers. In fact, one manufacturer, Agriboard Industries, claims that local farmers stand to make more from selling the wheat straw than from selling the actual crop. Until recently, many farmers disposed of agricultural wastes by burning or land filling them. The manufacturers currently using wheat straw as an industrial feedstock pay up to $45 per ton.
