Seminars for hops growers offered online
The Northeast Sustainable Agriculture, Research and Education organization, known as NE-SARE, is in the second year of a project with the UVM Extension Northwest Crops and Soils Team to sponsor educational online seminars (webinars) for farmers. The two organizations on Monday, April 23, at noon will host their first Hops Power Hour webinar.
Over the past year, the Northwest Crops and Soils team has been working with many farmers to advance pest and nutrient management strategies for Northeast hop production. The team is particularly looking forward to hearing again from the more than 60 hops growers who participated in our project last year; but the webinar is open to anyone.
The monthly Hops Power Hours are virtual discussions that will allow researchers and growers to learn and share pest and nutrient management information. Hop Agronomist Julien Venne will kick off the first Hops Power Hour on April 23 to discuss early season hop yard management. Monthly webinars will continue at noon every fourth Monday of the month, to focus on seasonally appropriate topics. People can connect to the Hop Power Hours by computer or call in by phone.

Those who are not able to join the live Hops Power Hours, can always watch recordings of Hops Power Hours and many other videos produced by the UVM Extension Northwest Crops & Soils YouTube channel at tinyurl.com/y7rgjdju. Organizers will also be checking in with some hops growers through our goScout program. Once a month they will ask farmers a handful of short questions about hop yard fertility and pest management. Grower responses will allow the team to learn about the challenges growers are facing throughout the season and tailor the upcoming Hops Power Hours to address those concerns.
