Abstract

Six soybean-seed conveyors were evaluated for capacity and seed damage. The belt conveyor, the flight conveyor, and the nylon-brush auger did not cause significant damage to soybean seed during conveying. The capacity of the belt conveyor declined significantly at 30° angle of inclination. The steel-flighting auger caused the most amount of damage, followed by the auger with rubber intake, and the pneumatic conveyor.
