this is taken directly from the faq:
 
Which strains are your fastest / biggest yielding / most compact?

Nearly all Sensi Seeds Indica and mostly-Indica varieties fall into the fast/heavy/compact category, with certain strains being particularly good performers. Big Bud® and Fruity Juice® (Indica/Sativa) would be two of our heaviest yielding varieties with a flowering time of 10 weeks or less.
However, the faster, slightly lower yielding varieties such as Northern Lights®, the various Skunk strains, Maple Leaf Indica® and other Afghanis may prove to be better producers over time. This is because their 7 to 8 week flowering time could allow a whole extra harvest per year.
 
Power plant is meant to be a good yielder as well

I may well be wrong here but, given the same conditions, not perfect but 85-90% there, wouldnt the Big Bud always be the bigest yeald simply because so few people are in a position to have such a clockwork setup as to be able to benefit from the extra crop in the first few years? And as someone quite rightly pointed out to me, they are plants and they do work to their own schedule at the end of the day so... More and biger buds is a better option than hoping for the extra crop, Isnt It?
 
Just one clarification though, 45 days flowering, does that essentially mean that given the right conditions, the plant only needs to be on 12/12 for 45 days before harvest or that after 45 days of veging the plant can be put into flowering?

Its 45 days of flowering time under 12/12

You can veg for how ever long you'd like, but the flowering of any sized (NL) plant should be complete around that 45-50 day mark.

Thanks Joe, so although its technically possible, does having that extra harvest with a reletavely average produces like NL have the same benefit as going SoG (Sea of Green) with a high producer like Big Bud? especially as the main cola on Big Bud is suposed to be the bigest of all the strains?

Always worth remembering that there are so many variables in the process. There are never any guarantees with nature - each strain is different and even with stable strains each plant (apart from clones from the same mother) in the strain is at least slightly different. Each will appreciate slightly different conditions, so it's possible to get poor yields from allegedly big yielding strains and good returns from low yielding strains especially if by chance your environment, nute regime etc happens to suit that low yielder, or if say you only have enough light to produce a certain amount of bud - the low yielder may hit your set-up's natural limit of production, so you could get the same from the high yielder as the low one.

(As you say Keith, plants work to their own schedule and may not finish "on time" but in exactly the same way they may not finish at the yield they are "supposed" to either - either way you are just playing the percentages).
 
Sorry, that's a very long winded way of saying that there are no guarantees - only guideline information, you need to find what works best for you and your setup.
