CFAES is offering three Hops Field Nights in August. They’re for new and experienced growers; will feature talks and demonstrations on a variety of topics, including drying, fertigation, drip irrigation, mechanical harvesting, a galvanized trellis system, and pest and disease management; will offer tours of the hop fields at each location; and will provide you with helpful handouts, including the Ohio Hop Disease Management Guide.
- Aug. 8, 5:30-9 p.m., in Piketon in southeast Ohio.
- Aug. 15, 5:30-9 p.m. in Bowling Green in northwest Ohio.
- Aug. 23, 5:30-9 p.m. in Wooster in northeast Ohio.
Hops are a new and growing crop in Ohio and a key ingredient in craft beer.
CFAES’s Brad Bergefurd, who studies and shares know-how on growing hops in our state, will serve as the host for all three events.
Registration for each event is $15, includes dinner, and you need to register in advance by contacting Charissa Gardner, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 740-289-2071, ext. 132. (Photo: CFAES.)
