seed cleaning

Nearly all our wheat has left the farm now but we always keep some back to use as seed to plant for next year's crop and this week the mobile seed cleaner came into the yard this week to process the wheat.

The wheat is tipped from the trailer into a hopper and taken up into the machine.

Using screens and seperators the best seeds are selected and given an accurate application of seed treatment and then discharged into 1000kg bags to be stored in the barn until it's time for drilling.

The undersized, light or damaged seed together with chaff and other trash is rejected and transferred to this trailer.
