How It Works
Sex/gender testing is an essential time saving tool during early stages of plant growth. It increases the cost-efficiency of growing from seed and helps you more effectively manage crop space. Determine the phenotype of your plants long before they are detectable by eye. Plant DNA Sex/Gender Testing works with the following types of plants:
- Hemp and Cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) (Mandolino et al., 1999 and van Bakel et al., 2011)
- Papaya* (Carica papaya) (Deputy et al., 2002 and (Liu et al., 2004)
- Asparagus* (Asparagus officinalis) (Harkess et al., 2017)
- Nepenthes* (carnivorous pitcher plants) (Scharman et al., 2017)
*When submitting samples for any species other than Cannabis you MUST include a piece of uncrushed whole-leaf tissue inside the collection kit.
