Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The fracture resistance of whole soybeans was measured in terms of average compressive force, deformation, and toughness at seedcoat rupture. Force required to initiate seedcoat rupture decreased as soybean moisture content increased from 8 to 17 percent. Maximum toughness occurred in the 11 to 14 percent moisture range.
