Learn about growing hops

Learn about growing hops

The surge in local craft breweries has increased demand for hops, beer’s key ingredient.

Growing hops can be an additional source of income for farmers. New or experienced hop growers can learn more about the crop at three field nights that will be held across the state starting Aug. 7 in Piketon. The second workshop will be in Bowling Green on Aug. 14, and the third in Wooster on Aug. 21.

All three workshops will be held in hop fields. Topics will include a galvanized trellis system; pest and nitrogen management; and new Ohio hop variety breeding, evaluation, and selections.

The workshops will be run by Brad Bergefurd, a horticulture expert with OSU Extension.

To register for the workshops, contact Charissa Gardner at 740-289-2071, ext. 132, or email
