Abstract

Cereals like sorghum, maize, wheat, barley and rice are the most important sources of food forbillions of people globally. They are consumed in different forms such as porridge, bread, and rice and used in various beverages. Conventional harvesters used to harvest these grains cut and feed a lot of straw together with grain into the threshing machine. However a more recent method strips grain rich material with a reduced amount of materials other than grain (MOG). A laboratory stripper rig designed for this studyconsists of three major components; a mounted stripper drum with attached stripping tools, a sample feeding mechanism, and the source of power and its controls. With this device laboratory stripping tests of cereal grains can be performed safely.
