Police closed the A149 between the roundabout and the Castle Rising turning in both directions and warned drivers to avoid the area if they could.
Queues built up down Grimston Road and the Lynn bypass, with one lane of the roundabout blocked.
A relief lorry was brought in to pick up the straw from the crashed HGV before it could be recovered from the scene.
