Among the major cereals of world, rice tops both in production and consumption. The production has increased manifolds but the losses during the post-harvest needs to be checked. The quality of rice is judged from the head rice yield (HRY). This paper reviews the various studies conducted affecting the head rice yield during the last 6 decades. It gives a detailed outline of various post-harvest processes, milling treatments, factors and latest technologies used in improving quality and production of head rice.

Keywords: Rice, Head rice yield, Milling efficiency, Degree of milling, Tempering, Quality.
