Delta Leaf does many things well, including offering cannabis growers an innovative method of DNA testing that lets them know whether their plants are male or female months before sex could be determined by traditional methods.
Traditionally, phenotype identification, e.g. sex/gender, has taken place when the plant has grown large enough that you can visually distinguish the different physical characteristics. For sex identification, this would include pollen sacs on male plants or pollen-collecting stigma on the females.
While visual detection of gender has been the general best practice for the industry for years, it typically is impossible until later in a plant’s growth cycle. Most growers know how useful it is to learn a plant’s gender as early as possible, so they won’t have to invest a lot of time and resources into plants that may need to be culled if and when the wrong gender turns up.
If you’re a grower, DNA testing is a smarter and faster method to get you the data you need to better plan and organize your operation.
Some of the benefits of testing include:
Using the early detection methods offered by Delta Leaf, you can receive great peace of mind for what you’re growing. By following an easy sample collection process, you can learn the gender of your plants well before you invest a lot of time and energy into growing them.
