Good Color

 

Peas, after the removal of dockage, defective peas and foreign material that are reasonably uniform in appearance and have an overall color equal to or better than depicted are considered good c¬olor. Peas whose appearance does not meet this minimum color requirement are considered to be of “fair” or “poor” color. Consult the ILP depiction for “fair” color to determine which of these color descriptions apply. Record this information on the work record and in the “Remarks” section of the certificate. Peas that are “fair” in color shall grade no higher than U.S. No. 2. Peas that are “poor” in color shall grade no higher than U.S. No. 3.
