Image of WHEAT GERM DAMAGE (BLEACH METHOD)
Kernels and pieces of wheat which, after bleaching, have discolored germs that are as dark or darker than shown. The discoloration may be prorated. For example, when the degree of discoloration is twice that shown, only half of the germ area needs to be discolored.
NOTE: Seed coats that occasionally remain attached to the germ area after bleaching must be carefully removed. Scraping too deeply can destroy the evidence of damage and cause non-uniformity of interpretation.

The visual reference images can be downloaded from our eBook Page. Information for purchasing printed copies of the visual references can be found on our Merchandise Page.
