The processes of seed separating, cleaning and sizing are accomplished by utilizing differences in
physical characteristics of the seeds to be separated. If seeds do not differ in some physical
characteristics they cannot be separated.

DISADVANTAGES OF DRYING
The initial cost of installing drying equipment is normally high.
Trained personnel required
Specific gravity separator
Special Cleaning Machines:
The winnower, air screen machine/cleaner, indent separators and specific gravity
table are more or less general cleaning machines. Sometimes a special cleaning
machine is needed for a specific problem.
In cases where the seed has high moisture content at the delivery time, it should be offloaded and
dried as soon as possible to avoid deterioration such as growing of mould etc.
