KEY CHECK 8:
Cut and threshed the crop at the right time.
Harvest/reap the crop when 1/5 or 20% of the grains at the base of the panicle are in hard dough stage. Press a grain from the base of the panicle between the thumb and forefinger to assess hard dough stage. Most of the grains in the panicle will be golden yellow.
Thresh the palay not later than one day after reaping for wet season (WS) and not later than two days for dry season (DS).
