In order to allow for variations other than size, incident to proper grading and handling, not more than six percent (6%) of the potatoes in any container may be below the requirements of the grade, but not to exceed one sixth (1/6) of this amount or one percent (1%) may be allowed for potatoes affected by soft rot or wet breakdown. In addition, not more than five percent (5%) by weight may be damaged by internal disorders, and in addition, not more than three percent (3%) may be below the prescribed size, provided, however, that when potatoes of this grade are packed to meet a minimum size requirement of six (6) ounces or more by weight, the tolerance for undersize shall be five percent (5%), but not more than two percent (2%) may be smaller than two (2) inches in diameter or four (4) ounces in weight.
