Rice post-harvest practices and loss estimates in Bangladesh-Part III: parboiling to milling



Rice post-harvest practices and loss estimates in Bangladesh-Part III: parboiling to milling



AMA, Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America 28(3): 51-55



The total paddy losses in Bangladesh from parboiling to milling were 5.7, 7.7 and 6.7% for the aman, boro and aus seasons, respectively, with the weighted average loss of 6.7%. Parboiling loss was high due to domestic animals and birds feeding during drying, and also due to scattering. Storage loss was highest (1.2%) in boro season because of higher insect infestation on moist grain. Averaged over three seasons, raw paddy produced higher losses than other commodities.
