Grade standards are strongly influenced by the industry it represents…..and the potato growers along with the USDA made this decision.

I’m trying to understand the difference of why 2% soft rot doesnt automatically fail the lot. Typically decay 1% allows you to fail the lot. Why is it different here, because it is called soft rot? thank you.
