Plant & Cannabis DNA Testing

SPEND LESS. GROW MORE.

A New Way To Know and Grow

Let science transform how you manage your plants.

Genetic testing allows you to glimpse into the genetics of a plant long before you’re able to observe what they actually will look like.

A small amount of DNA collected from a leaf makes cultivation more efficient by saving you time, electricity, water, labor, and ultimately your wallet.

​Get ready to unlock the full potential of your harvest!

SAVE TIME ON PLANTS YOU'RE GOING TO CULL

DNA testing can identify male plants months in advance, or powdery mildew infected plants weeks in advance.

SAVE MONEY COMPARED TO VISUAL IDENTIFICATION

The time and space saved by DNA testing also reduce the amount of electricity, water, nutrients and other resources.

MAXIMIZE YOUR AVAILABLE CROP SPACE

Early identification of plants to be culled frees up space while plants are still young which enables more efficient staggering of crop cycles.

ENSURE PLANTS ARE FREE OF PESTS & DISEASE

Powdery mildew and fungal contaminant screening eliminate worries about crop loss as you approach harvest.

Leading Innovation In Plant Genetics

​​We use the most sensitive DNA detection method available, quantitative PCR (qPCR), to identify specific genetic targets without revealing the exact underlying DNA sequence. With no restrictions on order size – we support cultivators of all types.

Go Beyond The Lab

What To Do When You Get A Positive Result During Hop Latent Viroid (HLVd) Genetic Screening?

What To Do When You Get A Positive Result During Hop Latent Viroid (HLVd) Genetic Screening?

Instead of eliminating the plants identified as infected it can be useful to move plants into quarantine and observe for visible signs of infection. Why? It’s still too early to understand if HLVd attacks all genetics or if some are, in fact, resistant to the viroid. As a lab that offers HLVd and other virus testing, Delta Leaf advocates for secondary analysis methods outlined below to better account for plants that may be resistant.

Steps To Prevent Hop Latent Viroid (HLVd) Infections In Your Facility

HLVd can spread by bringing infected mothers/clones into your facility, or by people traveling in between facilities. “Latent” means delayed; and HLVd can sit dormant undetected for extended periods of time. It’s a silent disease that might not show if it’s affecting your plants until it’s too late. With very little known about how to combat HLVd aside from very expensive tissue culturing, we recommend every large and small growing facility begin taking steps to prevent an outbreak within your operations.

Cannabis Hermaphrodites – Which Sex Carries the Hermaphrodite Trait?

Cannabis Hermaphrodites – Which Sex Carries the Hermaphrodite Trait?

To the best of my knowledge, cannabis hermaphrodites are genetic females, by definition (two X chromosomes). We at Delta Leaf have never seen nor heard of a genetically confirmed Male plant that ended up developing female flowers. Does this mean the hermaphroditic trait – or the genetic tendency for an individual plant to develop both male & female flowers – can only be passed on by the mother?
