This rule modifies the grade and maturity requirements for potatoes handled under the Colorado potato marketing order, Area No. 2.

This rule relaxes the minimum grade requirement from U.S. No. 1 grade to U.S. Commercial grade for all Area No. 2 potato varieties, other than round, red- skinned varieties, measuring from 1 \1/2\-inch minimum diameter to 2 \1/4\-inch maximum diameter (size B), and 1-inch minimum diameter to 1 \3/4\-inch maximum diameter. This rule also changes from August 25 to August 1 of each year the date minimum maturity requirements are implemented. These changes are intended to facilitate the handling and marketing of Colorado Area No. 2 potatoes.
