Test weight is defined as the weight of grain that fills a given volume, and is the product of grain density x volume of grain occupying the container. The latter component, when expressed as percentage of the volume of the container, is referred to as packing efficiency and was shown to be a cultivar characteristic. Of the 2 components, packing efficiency had a greater effect on test weight when comparing soft winter wheats.
