What is HpLVD? Hop Latent Viroid (HpLVD) is a plant pathogen that causes stunting/Dudding of the plant, called "Dudding disease." Biologically, it's a circular, single-stranded infectious RNA. HpLVD is known to cause up to a 70% yield loss as well as a 30% loss in cannabinoids. This viroid affects the plant by redirecting valuable resources within the plant to fuel the reproduction of the viroid itself.
Just because a crop tests positive doesn't mean all is lost. Crops with low viral loads have shown to not be a total loss at harvest. Proper testing would include monthly tests of mothers for propagation prior to making cuttings.
All samples are processed using "qPCR technology.
