Image of CORN SURFACE MOLD (BLIGHT)
Kernels which have a mold, caused by corn leaf blight, that appears to be only on the surface but actually penetrates the seed coat. Kernels which contain surface mold (blight) on one or both sides equal to or greater than that shown on both kernels are considered as surface mold (blight) damage.
NOTE: Do not confuse with surface mold (more than slight). No further examination is necessary if the kernel meets the VRI.
