Visual Reference Library - Corn

A.  Kernels affected with blue-eye mold, regardless of the size of the mold is a damaged kernel. If the mold is distinct, it is not necessary to open or scrape the kernel. When necessary, carefully lift the germ cover to avoid destroying evidence of mold. 
B.  Purple plumule IS NOT damage. The light to dark purple discoloration is due to a genetic or varietal characteristic and is restricted to the plumule area (center of germ). It may be necessary to gently lift/remove the germ cover to make an accurate determination.
