Hop latent viroid (HLV) testing for seed

Heard this company on Mr. Grow It podcast. It’s cool that they can test seed. I wish breeders would invest the relatively tiny amount to test each batch of seed. I’m considering taking one seed from each pack that I plan to try and submit them as a single sample. If it comes back positive I wouldn’t grow any until I track down which are infected.


I like it, however, hplvd spreads to about 10% of seeds. So you could have a hot one and a others that are fine. I know what hplvd looks like and will get rid of all moms again, if need be.
