Hops are commonly used in beer production to create brews in small and large quantities. More specifically, the cones in hops are the key part of this perennial plant to harvest.

The latest EDIS publication entitled ‘Harvest Techniques for Hops (Humulus lupulus)’ talks about two main areas of interest for a successful hops harvest: timing and method.

Both harvest method and timing can impact the economics and quality of a finished product. Therefore, a greater understanding of when and how the cones of hops should be produced are important to assess.
