Determining Crack Resistance and Translucency of Paddy Rice Kernels Using the PaddyCheck Instrument

VIEW METHOD

Objective
The objective is to determine the crack resistance and translucency of paddy rice kernels. The PaddyCheck instrument measures crack resistance by applying a given force on a three-point bend rig and translucency by polarized light transmission. Singulation discs with different cavity sizes are chosen to match the kernel size dimensions of the sample. The method gives measurements on how many kernels in a sample can withstand a specific normal force without breaking and how translucent the kernels are. The method is applicable to indica and japonica paddy rice ideotypes.
