Abstract:

Paddy drying experiments were conducted in Solar greenhouse dryer during paddy growing seasons namely kharif and Rabi at three different bed thicknesses (5, 10 and 15 cm). Milling quality analysis showed that there was no significant effect of season, replication and interaction of season and thickness on brown rice yield, milling recovery and head rice yield, however, grain bed thickness had a significant effect at 5% significant level. Highest head rice yield of 66.4% was achieved at 10 cm bed thickness, as compared to 62.9% and 65.4% for 5 and 15 cm beds thickness, respectively. Broken rice obtained was 3.66% during Kharif season which was significantly lower than that the broken rice (5.11%) obtained during the Rabi season. Head rice yield in the greenhouse dryer was much higher than mechanical drying (63.5%) and open sun drying (62.91%). The highest germination percentage (90%) was achieved during Kharif paddy drying and there was no significant difference in germination among greenhouse and open sun drying at 5% significant level.


Keywords: Greenhouse drying, paddy drying, head rice yield, brown rice yield, milling recovery, statistical analysis.
