The analytical method for the reaction force of crop stalks undergoing forced displacement, which has been verified for a bunch of wheat stalks, was applied to analysis of a bunch of rice stalks. The reaction forces of the rice stalk's bunches with various initial shapes were analyzed, and the accuracy was assessed by experimental results. The analytical results involved a certain amount of error, depending on the accuracy of the simulated initial shape, but were reasonably close. It was demonstrated that the reaction force according to the initial shape could be predicted utilizing the previous analytical method in the case of the bunch of rice stalks as well.
