Winnowing is the process of separation of the heavier components from the lighter components of a mixture by wind or by blowing air.

It is generally used by farmers to separate the lighter impurities such as husk particles from the heavier grains.

The process developed by ancient cultures to remove chaff from grain is called winnowing. It is mainly used by farmers. The husk generally blows away with the wind whereas the seeds land on a suitable platform.

Winnowing:
Winnowing is a process of separating heavy;small particles and light;small partials.
For example: toor dal and husk particles. This process is completely done by the wind. The heavier particles stay down whereas the husk particles jump away. This process is mostly seen in villages and few towns.
