Visual Reference Library - Oats
O-SLIGHTLY WEATHERED
 O-Slightly Weathered

EXPLANATION: Oats discolored by weather conditions are considered slightly weathered when a dusty, gray appearance is evident of the brush end of the kernels or when a sufficient number of severely weathered kernels are present to affect the appearance of the sample. In either case the entire sample must have a slightly weathered appearance and shall not be graded higher than U.S. No. 3, and the words "Slightly Weathered" shall be recorded on the pan ticket and official inspection certificate.
