Hop exportation

The US Hop Industry Plant Protection Committee has actively sought harmonization of pesticide regulatory standards (maximum residue levels or MRLs) in key customer countries for the past three decades. As US hops are exported worldwide, ensuring consistent regulatory standards between the US and export customers avoids trade issues and interruption of shipments. US HIPPC also collaborates with other hop producing countries through participation in the International Hop Growers Convention and the European Union Commodity Expert Group for Hops.

Some countries do not allow application of certain plant protection products or have lower MRLs than in the U.S. If you export hops you will need to comply with the relevant international MRLs. Export restrictions may apply to the pesticides included in this guide. Growers planning to export their hops should carefully review the Hop MRL Tracking Chart at https://www.usahops.org/growers/plant-protection.html.
