Concrete is the most extensively used construction material. With the everincreasing industrialization and urbanization, great amounts regarding natural resources are required to accomplish concrete. This, in turn, means that large volumes of natural resources and raw materials are being used because of concrete production around the world. To dispose of or reduce the negative environmental affect over the concrete industry and promote environmental sustainability about the industry, the uses concerning wastes beyond industry as like materials for concrete making is viewed as like an alternative solution because preventing the excessive usage about raw materials. The large availability regarding agricultural wastes that make world an appropriate or reliable alternative for aggregate of concrete, wherever available. This paper reviews the feasible use on agricultural wastes in concrete material as lightweight concrete. It aims to raise the concept about using these wastes through elaborating upon their engineering properties. This summary on existing expertise about the successful use of agricultural wastes between the concrete industry helps after discover other existing waste products for use in concrete making. From it identification by means of agricultural and civil engineers, considerable achievements can stay attained.
