In an effort to assist hop growers in making pesticide and nutrient management decisions, an updated “Michigan Hop Management Guide, 2020” has been completed and is available for free at the Michigan State University Extension Hops page. The packet includes an updated list of registered pesticides, nutrient management recommendations and a guide to seasonal pest occurrence and management activities. New content this year includes hop downy mildew management recommendations and pesticide safety information.

As the growing season approaches, please sign up to receive MSU Extension’s Hop & Barley Production Newsletter, and follow the Michigan State University Hops News Facebook page for up-to-date information. There is also an active MSU Hop listserv for an interactive discussion of all things hop-related (directions to subscribe below).
