hi guillaume

we are also building this summer in sarthe (val du loir) and the straw is
being harvested at the moment. i have not heard about this fungus; have you
tried contacting farmers a little futher away from your locality? i would
advise against barley - not so good for construction, try rye (du seigle) if
you can - this is even better than wheat straw!

good luck,
