In this LCA, the production, including harvest, of 1 m3 of straw for the English market with a density of 100kg/m3 and a moisture content of 20% is modelled. This concerns the production of grains (wheat and barley and the like) and harvest of said grains to collect straw for use as a building insulation material. The pressed straw bales consist of wheat straw and barley and are tied with polypropylene cords. The agricultural method used for production is based on regular agriculture, i.e. the use of fertilizers and pesticides in the A1 proﬁle for straw have been taken into account.
