So last summer, extension horticulturists, entomologists, and pathologists from across the Southeastern U.S. came together to update the Southeastern Vegetable Crop Handbook and this time we decided to include hops. In time we will have a production manual dedicated just to hops, but we wanted to make this information readily available to growers and extension agents and this annually revised handbook, available in print and on-line, seemed like the best way to do it.
Below is a link to the on-line pdf version of the handbook. The cultural practices for growing hops and recommended varieties can be found on page 60. In the back of the book you will find insect management recommendations (i.e., insecticides and miticides) on page 141 in Table 2-12. Disease control management recommendations (i.e., fungicides) can be found on page 190 in Table 3-18. Remember to always read and follow label directions.
