Abstract
Processing alfalfa seed from natural sources with admixture, grains of other species and various impurities are removed and clear grain of the basic culture is obtained. Grain of the basic culture is prepared for sowing machine and quality planting, germination and sprouting. Alfalfa seed loses during the processing depend on quantity and type of weed and other impurities of organic and inorganic origin present in the naturalized seed. In this paper is given the analyses of the efficiency during natural alfalfa seed processing of two different purities (B1, B2), processed on the same equipment that involves gravity table Oliver - 240. As the relevant parameters that define the effects of alfalfa seed were: clear grain (%), weed and other cultures seed (%), inert matter (%), quantity of processed seed (kg), time of seed processing (h), active (kWh) and reactive (kVArh) current consumption, processing output (%), and seed loses (%).
