Since 1993, rice for the Japanese market has been subject to official quality inspection against standards set by the Ministry of Agriculture Food and Forestry.

Physical characteristics considered important include the number of unbroken grains, the number of damaged grains, moisture content and percentage of whole grains.

Differ ent sized centrifugal fans were used on different bins to provide a range of aeration drying rates of 8-15 litres per second per tonne (L s-l t-l). The bins were loaded using grain slingers to create a reasonably level bin surface. From this early work, it was determined that paddy rice with initial moisture contents as high as 20% could be satisfactorily dried in such sheds using unheated aeration with a specific aeration rate of approximately 11 L s-l t-l. Considerable supervision of this operation was necessary as the rate of drying depended on the prevailing weather conditions.
