how to separate grain and husk?

Winnowing

Method of separating the components from a mixture. In this method, heavier and lighter components of a mixture are separated by wind or by blowing air.

The husk particles are carried away by the wind. The seeds of grain get separated and form a heap near the platform for winnowing. The separated husk is used for many purposes such as fodder for cattle.

Handpicking
