Substituting Hay for Straw
    #2168528 - 12/08/03 10:26 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I have another question, Can Hay be substituted for straw when making a casing with dung and cakes?     :spliff:

It can, but it's a lot more prone to contaminating because it has more seeds.

Stay away from hay.  Its definitely got more seeds and most of the time its much harder to work with.  Even commerical growers only use a small amount of hay which is usually mixed with compost.

Stick with straw :smile:
