Seagrass Harvest Season

When the summer sun starts to shine brightly, people are busy in the harvest season of seagrass.

 Seagrass is harvested twice a year in early April, and October (lunar calendar). Local people said that after cutting the stump, people dried the sedge in the field or used a car to dry in their yard. Seagrass is classified into 3 types. The type above 1.65 m is used for type 1 textile or for export. The medium type is 1.5 to 1.6 m long woven individual mats. There is also dried sedge used for cooking or roofing.

The Seagrass tree, after being split, will be dried for 3 sun in the field for light and soft fibers. After that, they are tied in bundles to bring home for further sorting and drying to sell to production establishments. People are most afraid of the rain, because the sedge will be damaged, black and not sold.
