Wheat reed was the by-product from grain production. The advent of combine harvesters means that it is now a specialist product only produced by those with the old-fashioned machines. It is labour-intensive by modern day standards.

Combed wheat reed roofs generally have a more rounded appearance than water reed. This material has a life span of around 20 years
