Today, wood based composites are among the most important forest products. Due to the increase in demand and
improvement in manufacturing technologies, some possible alternative raw materials to wood have been
investigated. Basically, alternative raw materials can be divided in two groups; namely, natural fiber resources
and agricultural wastes. Uses of agricultural wastes in composite manufacturing have been widely investigated in
worldwide. Agricultural chips and fibers were mixed with wood chips and wood fiber in manufacturing of
particleboard and fiberboard in different densities and thicknesses. Several adhesives in different ratios were
applied in experimental board manufacturing. Boards were manufactured under different temperature and
pressure regimes. Results indicate that boards manufactured by using agricultural waste can be alternative to
boards manufactured by using wood source.
