GSBN:rice straw



I have a question about rice-straw too.

I worked with rice straw for the first time last week, and was surprise,
because the bales seemed well compressed, but weighed much less than a wheat
straw bale of similar compression.  Is this normal?  Is it the moisture
content which would be lower, or is it because of the type of straw?
