Hops-growing interest is soaring, learn about making the leap

Basketball Player Slam Dunk SilhouetteCFAES’s Brad Bergefurd, who’s got hops, headlines the Northwest Ohio Hops Field Day this Thursday, Aug. 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The free event is at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation in Bowling Green in northwest Ohio, where a one-year-old planting of hops is in place. You’ll learn about cultivars, production practices, pest control and more. Grab the details with the same vigor as, say, the Cavaliers’ Tristan Thompson, “Canadian Dynamite,” grabs an offensive rebound here on p. 25. The tour is part of the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series.
