Can Ohio get its hops back? CFAES scientists think so

Scientists in our college have started a new research program on the hop plant, whose hop cones, or “hops,” are a main ingredient in making beer. Their goals? Developing sustainable growing practices — and helping Ohio farmers tap into the $4 million a year that Buckeye State brewers currently spend buying hops elsewhere. The scientists will speak on their work next week at Farm Science Review.
