  • Abstract The sex identification of pre-floral hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) is problematic for taxonomists and plant breeders, because the distinguishing morphological characteristics of male and female plants do not appear before flowering. Employing the RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) technique with 15 random primers, we have found that the genomes of female individuals bear female-associated polymorphic DNA fragments (870 bp and 1160 bp amplified by primer OPA-04; 1680 bp by primer OPF… CONTINUE READING
