Abstract:

Kodo millet is one of the important millet crop grown mainly in Madhya Pradesh, India. Kodo is high in nutrition value with protein, fat and carbohydrate. The physical property of Kodo determine with three variety JNK-(101), JNK-(364) and Niwas-(1) at three moisture content 7%, 11% and 12.6% (db). It was found that L,B,T in JNK-(101) ranging from 2.38 to 2.68mm, 1.43 to 2 mm, and 1.01 to 1.34 mm. Similarly in JNK-(364 ) L,B,T range from 2.27 to 2.72 mm, 1.34 to 1.75 mm and 0.96 to 1.30 mm, in Niwas-(1 )L,B,T range from 2.44 to 2.95 mm, 1.78 to 2.32 mm and 1.32 to 1.70 mm. The size of Kodo in all three variety ranges from 1.49 to 1.91 mm, 1.43 to 1.82 mm and 1.76 to 2.24 mm respectively. Sphericity increases in all three variety from 0.63 to 0.72 mm, 0.61 to 0.67 mm and 0.72 to 0.76 mm. The bulk density, true density and porosity in JNK-(101) ranges from 681 to 667.67 kg/m3, 1228.50 to 1202.67 kg/m3 and 44.57 to 43.74%. Similarly in variety JNK-(364) the value ranged from 684.33 to 674.33 kg/m3, 1228.80 to 1201.33 kg/m3 and 44.31 to 43.87 %. this trend also followed in Niwas-1 varied from 686.07 to 671.67  kg/m3, 1227.90 to 1203  kg/m3 and 44.13 to 43.84 % respectively. The angle of repose in JNK-(101) 25.28 to 26.07, JNK-(364) 25.26 to 26.04 and niwas-(1) 25.39 to 26.07 respectively. The physical property are used to determine the appropriate dimension for the designing of machine.
