Open/Close

The new, innovative Ohio hops research program offered by Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences is offering free monthly tours of its hops fields in Wooster and Piketon, where specialists are studying new production and management techniques.

The free tours are designed to be mini-workshops to provide basic information on getting started in hops production and what resources are available for growers. The tours will feature basic information on the ins and outs of hops production, including trellis construction, drip irrigation and evaluation of different varieties of hops. The tours are offered by Ohio State University Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, which are the outreach and research arms of the college.

The Wooster tours are hosted by Mary Gardiner, an Ohio State entomologist, and led by Chelsea Smith, an Ohio State entomology research assistant. The South Centers tours are hosted by Brad Bergefurd and assisted by Thom Harker, an Ohio State horticulture research assistant.
Topics to be discussed during the tours include:
• Hop yard construction
• Establishment cost
• Bine training
• Irrigation
• Variety selection
• Fertilization

The deadline to register is the Wednesday before the first Friday of the month.
