Determination of Grains Density and Porosity for Some Cereal Crops.

Abstract: Bulk density, true density and porosity for different varieties of four different cereal crops (rice, wheat, corn and barley) were determined as a function of grain moisture content. The measured and calculated data of The study showed a variation of these properties between the studied crops and also between the varieties of each crop. These properties were also related to a wide range of grain moisture contents (10-26%) through a group of empirical equations representing various studied varieties of each crop.
