Hops IPM Working Group
The Hops IPM Working Group, first funded in 2011, will define and prioritize the research and extension needs of the reemerging and geographically diverse hops industry in the Northeast, which is being driven by a popularity of microbrews, home brewing, and the buy-local food movement. The group also plans to develop and deliver hops IPM educational programming to the diverse audiences found in this industry. They will hold their first meeting in November 2011.
