  author={Zdzisław Kaliniewicz and Krzysztof Jadwisieńczak and Zbigniew Żuk and Adam Lipiński},
The basic physical properties of hemp seeds were measured to determine the correlations between these properties to facilitate the planning of seed sorting operations. The basic dimensions (length, width, and thickness), terminal velocity, angle of external friction, and mass were determined in the selected seeds. The seeds were subjected to a uniaxial compressive strength test to determine the force required to damage a seed, the corresponding displacement, and the energy consumed during the…

Variations and Correlations between the Physical Properties of Seeds of Eleven Spruce Species

The findings indicate that spruce seeds should be sorted primarily with the use of mesh sieves with longitudinal openings to obtain fractions with similar seed mass and to promote even germination.

Physical and mechanical properties of rapeseed at different moisture content

A b s t r a c t. Physical and mechanical properties of three common varieties of rapeseed have been evaluated as a function of seed moisture content varying from 8.3 to 25.9%, from 7.7 to 27.4%, and

Aspects of the Process of Sorting European Black Pine Seeds

The results of this study indicate that black pine seeds should be sorted with the use of pneumatic separators or, alternatively, mesh sieves with longitudinal openings, which delivers both economic and environmental benefits in nursery practice.
