Some farmers bale their straw and stack it while others wrap their straw in plastic and gather it in the field with a forklift. Many motorists stopped and watched as this process was taking place on a field along Plantation Road near Lewes. RON MACARTHUR PHOTOS

A forklift can carry two large bales of straw, which is a byproduct of the wheat harvest. Farmers use a combine to harvest wheat letting the wheat straw fall in rows on the ground, which later baled.
Straw bales are loaded onto a trailer for transport. Wheat straw is used for livestock bedding and by mushroom farmers.
