Harvesting & Threshing

Harvesting of the crop in the field followed by threshing: • Water is to be drained out from the field when grains in the lowest portion of the panicle are in the dough stage (about 20 days from 50% flowering). • The grains are to be allowed to harden. • Harvesting is to be done at 30-35 days after flowering when stalks still remain green to avoid grain shedding. • Moisture content of padd
