The grain amylose content (AC) and amylose position distribution in the panicle were compared in 6 japonica cultivars with erect panicle and 4 japonica cultivars with curved panicle. Panicle type had a significant effect in AC variation in grains. Erect panicle cultivars had higher variation coefficient, dispersing degree and variation range of AC than curved panicle cultivars.
