Upland culture of nine varieties at Ivory Coast resulted in decreases in grain weight, brown and milled rice translucency, Chroma meter L* of rough rice, Chroma meter L* and b* of milled rice, milled rice protein, and Amylograph peak viscosity, and in increases in total phenolics of hull and brown rice, and Chroma meter a* of rough, brown, and milled rice of 5 to 8 of the varieties as compared with irrigated culture. Upland culture had no consistent effect on grain resistance to Angoumois grain moth (Sitotraga cerealella).
