.. .-i.viui in nus is an inucx or the
adaptability of the variety or strain.
Corn may have reached full maturity
but if It. Is not thoroughly dr it will
appear immature. Exhibits" should,
therefore, be thoroughly dried.
2. Uniformity All the ears Is an
exhibit should lie uniform In size and
color and conform to a given type.
Look at the exhibit as a whole and
take out any ears that attract the
eye or stand out conspicuously. It is
wen even to remove the best ear from
an exhibit if it destroys the uniform
ity by its outstanding merit.
3. Color of Cob A yellow variety
should not have a white cob and a
white variety sohuid not have a red
oh. This is an indication of impur
ity or mixture and disqualifies the en
tire exhibit. Kemove one or two ker
nels if necessary to make sure of this
1. Dent of Kernel -Dent varieties
should show a marked dent or rough
ness of kernel. Smooth kernels indi
cate a reversion to flint varieties and
score against the exhibit.
5. Compactness The rows should
be straight and the furrows between
the row.j narrow, wide furrows indi
cate a small pen outage of corn to cob
It is usually true that a rounded ker
nel which causes the furrows between
the rows has a corresponding furrow
