Straw is an agricultural by-product, the dry stalk of a cereal plant, after the grain or seed has been removed. In times gone by, it was regarded as a useful by-product of the harvest, but with the advent of the combine harvester, straw has become more burdensome to agriculture. The only things I know that made by straw and are still used in somewhere are Scarecrow.
