Effect of humidity on the seed-to-ear or seed-to-panicle binding force and energy variations

Effect of humidity on the seed-to-ear or seed-to-panicle binding force and energy variations

Trends in agricultural engineering, Prague, 15-18 September 1992 Proceedings II: 569-574

Seed-to-ear or seed-to-panicle binding force and energy examinations were carried out for various seed grasses (orchard grass, fescue grass, rye-grass and awnless brome grass). A direct method of force and energy determination was applied using INSTRON strength testing apparatus equipped with proper instrumentation. The tests were carried out at various m.c. levels and with or without desiccant application.
