ABSTRACT
The paper presents results of studies on the influence of moisture on the physical properties and parameters of the pressure compression process of cereal grains. The studies covered ground grains of wheat, barley, oat and rye with varied moisture levels. Quantitative coefficients of the material`s ability for compression were also determined. They can be used for the classification of raw materials and fodder mixes with respect to their granulability.
