Threshing

After harvesting, the crop should be kept in field for about 4-5 days for drying and to avoid mechanical damage and maximize storability. Threshing is done after drying by beating with wooden sticks or trampling by bullocks/tractor or by specialized thresher. Grains are cleaned by removing dust, dirt, foreign material, off-sized, immature and infested grains and then graded.
