Lentils, after the removal of dockage, defective lentils and foreign material that lack uniformity in seed coat color (e.g. blend of old/new), but have an overall color equal to or better than depicted are considered Good Color. Lentils 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. Lentils that are "fair" in color shall grade no higher than U.S. No.2. Lentils that are "poor" in color shall grade no higher than U.S. No. 3.
