Potted rice var. indica hybrids were subjected to 26/22 or 36/30 degrees C under greenhouse conditions to determine the effects of temperature on the grain water, starch and soluble sugar content; enzyme activity and morphological characteristics of the rice grains. Starch grain development and endosperm transparency were not affected at 26/22 degrees C but decreased at 36/30 degrees C.
