Visual Reference Library - Soybean

Soybeans and pieces of soybeans which have a glassy, wax-like appearance. The color of affected soybeans may vary provided the color intensity is equal to or greater than shown. The discoloration may be prorated. For example, when the degree of discoloration is twice that shown, the required area of coverage can be reduced by one half.
NOTE: Only half of the cross-sectioned soybean must meet the VRI. Do not cross-section splits and pieces of soybeans. Examine the flat side of the split.

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.
