Abstract
Spatial dimensions of soybean grains were determined for each lot at d ifferent moisture contents up to d.b. A typical phenomenon of increase in dimensions was observed. Grain length increased by over 60%, where as the changes tn breadth and thickness were about 20 and 16%, respect ively for increase in moisture content upto 114% d.b. In addition, abo ut 18% decrease in grain sphericity, 26% increase in size and over 90% increase in 1000 grain mass were observed. These major changes in the longitudinal direction alone would lead to increase in aerodynamic pr operties of the material. The data, thus, indicate the need to design the individual system for each moisture content range of the soybeans.
