Define the term Threshing?

  • Threshing is the process of loosening the edible part of the grain (or other crops) from the chaff to which it is attached. 

  • It is the step in grain preparation after reaping.

  • It is the process in which stems of wheat or paddy are beaten to separate grains from the stems and from the chaff that cover the grains. 

  • Stalks or stems of crop plants and the chaff are soft material whereas the grains themselves are very hard.

  • This process can be done manually by beating it on a solid surface or by using a threshing machine.
