The objectives of this study were to compare the effects of 0-16% (w/w) splits content ( for samples with 16% splits were 1.5 times greater than that for samples with 4% splits. for soybeans was linearly correlated with , decreasing from 1.0 to 0.60 for 0 to 16% splits, respectively. for soybean was more sensitive also to splits and damage content compared to the for corn, which decreases only from 1.0 to 0.8 as damaged kernels content increased from 30 to 40% (w/w). This research is useful in defining for 18% moisture content soybeans stored at 35°C under hermetic conditions. The procedures outlined in this paper may be used in the future to define a soybean that covers a wider range of moisture content and storage conditions.
