Effect of rice moisture content at harvest on economic return



Effect of rice moisture content at harvest on economic return



Applied engineering in agriculture 11(5): 685-690



Economic analyses were conducted to assess the impact of rice harvest moisture content (MC) on economic return to a producer. The primary factors considered included percent milled rice, percent head rice, field yield, and drying costs. The results showed that rice harvest MC had a dramatic impact on the final gross income to a producer. The optimal harvest MC was influenced by field yield loss rate and, to a lesser degree, drying charge schedule. The relative price of broken to head rice also affected the optimal harvest MC. Significant losses in gross income could be incurred if rice is harvested at MCs lower than 15% or higher than 22%.
