Kernels and pieces of wheat which have a dull, lifeless, chalky appearance. To function as scab damage, the entire surface area must meet the minimum appearance criteria shown. Kernels meeting this criteria sometimes contain a pinkish mold.

 

NOTE: Kernels which do not meet these requirements should be examined for the presence of mold (refer to VRI W-4.1, "MOLD DAMAGE").
