About The Book

The book is an important publication featuring exhaustive technical information on practical aspects of seed processing. Some of these aspects are latest developments happening in vegetable seed industry and written by authors who are having immense experience of working in many national and multinational companies. This book help to prepare people associated with seed processing and offer great reference to academic, researchers and students who are studying courses in Seed Processing and Storage. This book serves as practical manual for these courses. • This book covers the following practical aspects and experimental techniques in seed processing with more emphasis on practical activity in each session: • Seed processing terminology and shop floor activities • Seed Extraction Methods and effect of physiological maturity on seed quality • Seed quality up-gradation by liquid density separation • Estimation of physical properties of Seeds by various methods • Method of seed blending and assessing mechanical injury after processing • Basic and advanced seed processing equipments • Standardization of screen sizes for seed processing and effect on seed quality • Importance of moisture in seed processing and Seed quality enhancement by use of spiral graders in soya bean • Seed drying, seed treating methods, equipments and evaluating the quality of treated seeds • Seed Priming and how to design a low cost drum seed priming unit • Study of packaging materials and fumigation • The relationship of seed moisture content and mechanical damage • Validating Harrington's rules for a particular area for seed storage • Quantification of seed processing efficiency (SPE) • Study of PPE and ESH in seed processing • Estimation of post harvest seed losses with management of stacking and the problem of “stackburn” The practical sessions contain data sheets to enter data after each experiment and provide detailed worksheets at the end of the manual
