Polished rice was stored for 24 weeks at $28^{\c수분함량이 16.0% after infestation with rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae), inoculation with a storage mold, or both treatment. The moisture contents of stored rice with and without rice weevil were 16.6%-17.3% and 13.70%-14.1% respeotively. Fungal numbers were $4.3{\times}10^{6}$/g to $7.2{\times}10^{6}$/g with insects while no fungal growth occurred without them. There were considerable differences between rice weevil infested- and non-infested rice in rice kernel hardness, 1000 kernel weight, maximum viscosity on amylogram, reducing sugar content, fat acidity, and n-hexanal content in head space gas.
