1. Grain size and shape (length-width ratio) is a varietal property.
2. Long slender grains normally have greater breakage than short, bold grains and consequently have a lower milled rice recovery.
3. The grain dimensions also dictate to some degree the type of milling equipment needed.
4. For instance, the Japanese designed milling equipment may be better suited to short-bold, japonica grains whereas Thai made equipment will be more suitable for longer, slender grain types.
