7/5/2023 – Join us early on Tuesday, July 25th to visit our research hop yard and participate in a discussion of the status of hops in North Carolina, and how the NC State breeding program is trying to make hop growing a feasible enterprise for North Carolina farmers.

Come see the progress being made in breeding new hop varieties for the Southeast. Join our breeder, Dr. Luping Qu, in the hop yard where he will describe his hop breeding program and compare his new lines with popular commercial varieties.

Hop yields are low in North Carolina because commercially available varieties were bred for northern latitudes. To make hop production economically feasible for North Carolina farmers, we need varieties that produce high yields of good quality hops.

This event is open to anyone interested in hops, but with an emphasis on growers, brewers, and other users of locally grown hops. This event will take place rain or shine.
