Screens are some of the most essential tools for small-scale cleaning of seeds that mature dry. These five screens – 2 mesh (strands per inch), 4 mesh, 8 mesh, 16 mesh, and 30 mesh – are effective for cleaning seeds ranging in size from amaranth to beans on a homestead or small farm scale. For most types of seeds, we recommend pouring the seed harvest over two sizes of screens: one to separate out the larger chaff, and one to separate out smaller chaff and dust. Screening generally complements winnowing and threshing, but can also be effective on its own. This set of screens is affordable in part because of how little space it takes up

Types and Uses:

  • 1 screen = 5.1 mm: Good for larger seeds such as: beans, corn, peas, okra, chickpeas, and hollyhocks
  • 2 screen= 3.3 mm: Good for medium-large seeds such as: sorghum, fennel, cilantro, beets, asparagus, and small sunflower varieties

  • 8 screen =.38 mm: Good for teeny-tiny seeds such as tobacco, poppies, and chamomile
