Hops Research Meeting
Tuesday, August 18th, 2015, 1:00 p.m.
Valley Laboratory, Windsor, CT

The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station Valley Laboratory will hold a field plot tour and hops research meeting on Tuesday, August 18th starting at 1:00 p.m. at our research farm and in our conference room.  Drs. Jim LaMondia, Katja Maurer and Victor Triolo will discuss our hops and malting barley research results to date regarding varieties, trellis systems pest problems and disease resistance.  Mr. Jeff Heintz of HopsHarvester of Honeoye Falls, NY is a manufacturer of harvesting implements for small hop yards.  He will have a mobile PTO-driven harvester available for demonstration at that time.  This will be a good opportunity to learn what we have done so far, and give us feedback about where we should go from here.  Please notify colleagues who may be interested about this meeting.  We hope to see you then. 



Please see our Community Outreach Page for events we will be attending.
