Effects of drying conditions under sunlight on drying period and grain quality in paddy

Effects of drying conditions under sunlight on drying period and grain quality in paddy

Research Reports of the Rural Development Administration, Plant Environment, Mycology and Farm Products Utilization, Korea Re ic 27(1): 121-126

Rice grains were dried in lots 1-8 cm deep in the sunlight (temp. 13.0-16.8 degrees C and 67-76% RH) (a) on concrete floors, (b) on rice straw mats, (c) on polyethylene film under vinyl coverings, or (d) on gauze above rice straw. At all depths of drying lots, moisture content decreased more rapidly in short than long rice grains; rate of moisture content loss and the percentage of cracked grains were inversely porportional to pile depth.
