CHAPTER 1: BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

INTRODUCTION
“God gives us that vast goodness of nature and vegetation is among those. As man propagates for abundance; he deserves to harbor tremendous benefits from it.” Man has inhabited earth with all its richness laid before him. With his gladness, ingenuity and constant search for knowledge he discovered numerous ways to enrich his mind of endless ideas. This study is conducted to be able to find a benefit from talahib, and corn hub in a hollow block. A talahib is a grass native to South Asia. It is perennial, growing up to three meters high, with spreading rhizomatous roots. This grass quickly colonizes exposed silt plains created each year by floods, forming almost pure stands on the lowest portions of the floodplain. The reeds of this grass can be made into mats, screens, and thatch roofs. In this study, the researcher wants to test the feasibility of the grass to be an additive for hollow blocks.

Cornhusks have properties between cotton and linen. It has a lower modulus than linen and jute and will therefore be softer and flexible. However, the higher work rupture of cornhusks means that the fibers can withstand higher loads and will be more durable....
