Abstract:
Some physical properties of different sorghum varieties viz., Parbhani Jyoti, Parbhani Moti, Parbhani Super Moti, Dagadi, Parbhani Shakti were determined within moisture range formed 11.63 to 12.67 wb. Thousand-grain weight, moisture content, length (L), width (W) and thickness (T), angle of repose, bulk density, true density, porosity, colour L value, grain hardness (N), Equivalent mean diameter were the physical parameters measured. Result of investigation showed that the maximum physical parameters such as EQD (4.48 mm), sphericity (0.81), aspect ratio (0.906), surface area of single grain (41.25 mm2), volume of single grain (24.48 mm3), thousand grain weight (36.10 g), and bulk density (769.49 kg/m3) were found for Parbhani Moti variety. The maximum physical parameters such as length (4.56 mm), width (3.99 mm), shape factor (4.51) and porosity (0.4267) were found for Parbhani Jyoti variety. The maximum physical parameter i.e. angle of repose (380 80’) was found for Parbhani Shakti variety. The minimum physical parameters such as EQD (4.16 mm), surface area of single grain (35.71 mm2), volume of single grain (19.69 mm3), thousand grain weight (27.56 g), length (4.1 mm), and porosity (0.3839) were found for Parbhani Shakti variety. The minimum physical parameter i.e. sphericity (0.77) and aspect ratio (0.870) were observed for Parbhani Jyoti variety.
