Abstract

20 rice (Oryza sativa L.) var. were screened for their susceptibility to crack formation, when subjected to natural weathering in the field, and also wetting and drying stress in the laboratory. 'Halubbulu' var. was highly crack-resistant and MR 297, MR 44, MR 298 and IET 2254 were moderately crack-resistant. Other var., though high-yielding, were highly susceptible to crack formation. A close correlation between the proportion of sun-checked grains and the % breakage during milling was observed. The results indicate that genetic variability for sun-check formation should be exploited in rice improvement programmes.
