Abstract:

An experiment was carried out at Seed Processing Unit and Seed Quality Testing Laboratory, Seed Unit, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, to study the influence of seed grading and specific gravity separator on seed quality parameters of soybean var. DSb-21. Among the three sieve size used 3.75 mm recorded higher recovery (77.60%), seed germination (85.00%) and seedling vigour index (3293) followed by 4.00 mm (75.20%, 84.33% and 3179, respectively) and 4.80 mm (66.00%, 81.67% and 3016, respectively) over other sieves used under study, indicating that Seeds obtained from specific gravity separator after processing through seed grader from below recommended sieve size - 3.75 mm processing equipment's have great impact upgrading the seed quality.
