Abstract/Contents:"Five pieces of equipment used to obtain working samples in the Official Seed Testing Station for Scotland were investigated. These were random cups, centrifugal divider and three types of soil divider - a small soil divider with eight channels, each 2.3 cm wide, a big soil divider with 18 channels each 1.4 cm wide and a medium soil divider with 20 channels each 1.3 cm wide. When small seeded samples were divided the medium soil divider gave the best results and the centrifugal divider the most variable ones. When larger seeded samples were divided by the centrifugal divider and the big soil divider both gave satisfactory results. The number and size of the channels in a soil divider and the method of introducing the seed into the dividers appear to be critical when small seeded samples are used, but not when larger seeded samples are divided."
