Abstract:
The extent of yield is directly proportional to the quality of seed that is being sown. Seed bulk at harvest contains a wide range of seed sizes however, these may not all be of equal value for sowing. It is also important to minimize the loss by adopting proper sieve size according to varieties of the same crop in view of this there is urgent need to standardize the sieve size for grading of different chickpea varieties. This investigation was performed under randomized block design with three replications. Accordingly different varieties of desi and Kabuli chick pea were processed by using different sieve sizes for good recovery. The present study revealed that the seed recovery percentage with recommended sieve size. As the sieve size decreased the seed recovery increased. The highest seed recovery percentage (95.5%) with the reduced sieve size 8:00 mm (R) was recorded by the variety Kripa.
