The experimental property at SIHRB comprises a total of 27 hectares, on which mainly hop plants are grown. Part of the arable land (1 ha), is used for growing echinacea (0.4 ha) and to a lesser extent other crops, particularly in the context of technological experiments.
The principal activity of the experimental property is correct agrotechnological arrangements in hop plantations, according to the protocol of technological experiment and breeding program.
We possess all the necessary equipment and machinery for this purpose, as well as machinery for complete harvesting operations and drying facilities for hops, with the possibility of introducing improvements in the quality of harvesting and drying.
In addition to the basic activities, we perform mechanical services for interested users.
