Abstract/Contents:"Processing of seeds includes the separate operations of cleaning, grading and dressing. Most seed cleaning machines available today have been designed to handle the bulk of the world's commercial crops grown for seed production and cultivated mainly in temperate climatic regions. Tropical pasture seeds are currently a minor product. Many may be processed in the usual way using conventional machinery, but efficient cleaning methods are still being developed for others. Due to various reasons like habits of growth, harvesting methods and unusual physical properties of the seeds themselves, handling with normal equipment is not always successful and a new technology has been devised. The special equipment designed to handle these problems either precleans the seed to the stage where normal equipment can take over the cleaning, or accommodates the seed through the entire processing phase. The same principles are involved; it is the method of application that has been altered. With appropriate modifications, commercial units have now been improved to the stage where the efficient cleaning of tropical pasture seeds has been effectively developed and the production of these seeds is now a growing industry in Queensland."
