Abstract

Branches of paddy panicles were divided into 4 equal parts and grains collected from each part separately. Moisture content at harvest and milling breakage after shade drying of grains to 12-13% moisture were determined. Average moisture content of grains gradually increased while milling quality generally suffered in grains from the top first quarter to the last quarter at the bottom. The same trend was found when the grains in the top quarter were compared with those to the rest of the panicle. The proportion of sun-checked grains was highest in the top fractions at all stages of maturity. The grains at the top also had a tendency to shed easily from the panicle. At early stages of maturity milling breakage of grains in lower portions of panicles was high perhaps due to immaturity and softness.
