Diseases in hops can reduce yield and quality, and they are challenging to manage. Ideally, management includes a mixture of cultural and chemical strategies. Michigan State University Extension is working on solutions to manage hop diseases. The MSU Extension hop team has developed a quick (less than 10 minutes) survey to gather input on the scale of your problems with hop disease management and to learn how growers across the eastern United States are tackling these problems.

The survey asks about disease management and associated cultural practices. Your timely responses will help us improve management recommendations to better address hop diseases.
