Biodegradable Pots Made From Sawdust, Wheat Straw
Kansas farmer and engineer Kelly Coover has developed a process to turn wheat straw or sawdust into biodegradable parts for a variety of uses.
  The first market he looked at was feed additives. You could fill the pots with feed additives, like molasses, and then toss them into a feed mixer, pot and all.
  Another use is to make pots for the nursery business. His sawdust pots are waterproof and are as durable as plastic pots, but you can get rid of them in a compost pile.
  With help from his brother and business partner Don, Coover is working on patenting several aspects of his process. He'll be ready soon to take orders for the pots.
