 Peas-1.5 Sprout Damage

Portion for Analysis: Approximately 250 grams


Peas or pieces of peas which have sprouted to the extent that the sprout has cracked/broken through the seed coat and is visible to the minimum degree shown are damage. Also, when it is apparent that the sprouting has occurred (i.e., sprouting is noticeable in representative work sample) but, through handling, the sprout has broken off and is no longer protruding through the seed coat, consider such peas to be damage.
