Title : Determination of the possibility of selecting pea seeds designated for sowing with the use of differences in external friction coefficients
Key words : pea, germination ability, separating properties
Summary :

The paper presents research results concerning differences in basic separating features of batches of pea, which enable efficient separation of material fractions of high germination ability. It was found out that based on differences in such properties, such as: dimensions, mass and critical velocity of lifting seeds, this technological operation may not be sufficiently carried out. In order to solve a practical problem, an attempt was made to determine possible differences in external friction coefficients of seeds on bases made of; steel, gum and linen, polar and cotton-linen). It was determined that statistically significant differences for this feature occur only for steel. It was suggested that in practice for selection of pea seeds of high germination ability, a sailor's whipping should be used.
