Liquid Density Separation (LDS) increases the germination quality of a sub-batch of seeds within a seed batch. A novel, alternative method for separating seeds by density is Magnetic Density Separation (MDS). In this paper, a comparison is made between LDS and MDS. It is also shown that MDS can improve germination quality by separating seeds continuously into multiple fractions in a single process step, which saves a significant amount of time and work.
