Hop growing and processing

The professional task of Technology of Hop Production and Processing comprises several fundamental activities, including observing and forecasting significant diseases and pests, monitoring new pests and diseases in hop cultivation, estimating irrigation requirements, yield and technological maturity of certain hop varieties, and providing recommendations for fertilization. The processing of meteorological data to monitor hop growth and development and determine the optimal time for the application of pesticides and fertilizers is a crucial aspect. Additionally, the economics of hop production and marketing involve model calculations of production costs and analysis of the global hop market. Another significant aspect of this professional task is conducting research in the field of hop production technology, with the objective of achieving a stable yield of high quality and ensuring competitiveness within the industry. By conducting field trials, we can implement improvements in the technology of hop production tailored to our region’s needs.
