PaddyCheck—An Instrument for Rice Quality Determination
AbstractSeveral of the rice quality parameters are nowadays determined manually or partly manually, which leads to subjective results. In order to analyse the rice quality and avoid most of the manual handling, the PaddyCheck instrument was mainly developed to measure the paddy/rough rice kernels. However, the design and technique of the instrument are also suitable for brown rice kernels. The PaddyCheck instrument measures the physical properties of the rice kernels as well as texture properties and translucency. Initial calibrations have been developed to correlate these properties with the Head Rice Yield and Chalkiness, which are two of the most common and important quality parameters for rice.
