The financial impact of an undetected pathogen like Hop Latent Viroid (HLVd) can be devastating for a cannabis grower. Symptoms of HLVd can be subtle and difficult to perceive. One infected Mother plant could contaminate hundreds of adjacent plants or clones resulting in slower growth, lower potency, and stunted yield by up to 70% with a loss of potency and terpene production up to 35%.
As with most obligate pathogens, prevention is key. And prevention starts with early detection. The most reliable and sensitive means of detection is accomplished by viral RNA testing. MH Verify is the first rapid field test kit to help growers identify and mitigate the spread of pathogens like HLVd in cannabis and hemp plants.
MH Verify’s proven field test kit makes it easier for growers to detect plant pathogen contamination rapidly and privately.
