Abstract:

Present investigation is an attempt to study the effect of different harvesting and threshing methods on harvesting and threshing losses and physiological seed quality of rice varieties viz., CR1009 Sub1, Improved white ponni and CO51. The treatments are manual harvesting and manual threshing, manual harvesting and mechanical threshing (axial flow thresher) and combine harvesting (with pneumatic wheel). The harvested and threshed seeds were evaluated in terms of moisture content (%), 1000 seed weight (g) threshing efficiency (%), visible broken seed (%), visible dehusked seed (%), shattering loss (kg/ha), germination and seedling vigour. The results revealed that rice seed harvested and threshed through manual method or by combine with higher threshing efficiency and did not affect the germination and seedling vigour irrespective of the varieties studied.


Keywords: Rice, Harvesting, Threshing, Shattering loss, Germination, Seedling vigour.
