The evaluation of the effects of processing seeds of blue lupine on their physical, physiological and pathological quality was performed due to the lack of available information. Seeds of blue lupine cv. IAPAR 24 were processed using the air screen cleaner and the gravity table, individually or in sequence. The efficiency of the equipments was measured and the seed physical, physiological and pathological qualities were evaluated. The gravity table individually or in association with air screen cleaner contributed to improve the quality of blue lupine seeds.
