How do they produce feminized seeds?

This year was my first grow using the feminized seeds I got from Nirvana. I ended up with 13 starts transplanted in the garden, of which 2 were male.
Normally, its at least 50% male, and I got to wondering just how it was done.
Anybody know?

^Yeah. I have yet to get a male in 8 years of using fem seeds.Very few hermies either, only when overly stressed which was my fault.

Any plant which produces bud (female flowers) may produce seeds if it is exposed to pollen.

A hermaphrodite plant grows both female and male flowers.
It could look female initially, or male. Either way, if it then starts growing flowers of the opposite sex it is a hermaphrodite.

Major problems can occur if a plant starts to grow female flowers initially, but then later also grows male flowers which produce pollen.
This pollen will seed the plant and any other female plants growing near it.
Which is not desirable, as the buds will be seeded and the seeds will likely carry the hermaphroditic trait.

Also, do read the FAQs.
