Rice Milling

 

Milling is a crucial step in the post-production of rice. The basic objective of a rice milling system is to remove the husk and the bran layers, and produce an edible, White rice kernel that is sufficiently milled and free of impurities. Depending on the requirements of the customer, the rice should have a minimum number of broken kernels.

Most rice varieties are composed of roughly 20% rice hull or husk, 11% bran layers, and 69% starchy endosperm, also referred to as the total milled rice.

In an ideal milling process, this will result in the following fractions: 20% husk, 8−12% bran depending on the milling degree and 68−72% milled rice or white rice depending on the variety. Total milled rice contains whole grains or head rice and broken. The by-products in rice milling are rice hull, rice germ and bran layers, and fine broken

  • Agricultural & Technical Assistance

 

For this reason, New Entry gives all beginning farmers in the Farmer Training Program individualized technical assistance, as needed, in order to answer their questions and give advice. Technical assistance is held in the office (for example, making crop plans and ordering seeds), at farmers’ homes (for example, setting up a home seed propagation system) and in the field (for example, how to trellis tomatoes efficiently, or how to identify pests and how to deal with them). Also, farmers can receive one-on-one help with record-keeping, business planning, sourcing equipment and supplies, land access, and marketing. Technical assistance also includes help with permits and regulations, which may be required in order for you to grow and market crops.
