The Use of Straw in South Korea 韓国での藁の利用

Rice Cultivation 稲作

Even in very rural areas of South Korea, Bales are Produced after harvest.  There seems to be tremendous potential for straw bale building in South Korea.

Traditionally in Korea, farmers used straw as a roofing material.  But unlike Japan, even thatch roofs are plastered with earth before thatching.  Whereas in Japan thatch is tied directly to the roof structure using long needles, in many areas of South Korea the thatching is secured from above using a network of straw rope.
