1. A mixture of varieties causes difficulties at milling and usually results in reduced capacity, excessive breakage, lower milled rice recovery and reduced head rice.

2. Different sizes and shaped grains make it more difficult to adjust hullers, whiteners and polishers to produce whole grains.

3. This results in low initial husking efficiencies, a higher percentage of re-circulated paddy, non-uniform whitening, and lower grade of milled rice.
