A medium-long, semislender variety of paddy was shelled using four types of shellers (rubber roll, centrifugal, disc under-runner, McGill) followed by pearling with a McGill miller. Grain breakage during shelling was the least in the rubber roll. But the less the breakage duringshelling, the more it was during pearling. As a result, the rubber roll gave considerable advantage after low and medium degrees of milling, but only a marginal advantage at high milling. Total rice breakage was equal to or less than the content of defective grains in the original paddy depending on the sheller.
