Successful Conclusion of the Two-Day 60th Jubilee Seminar on Hops in Portorož

On February 9th and 10th, 2023, the Institute held the highly anticipated 60th anniversary seminar on hops in Portorož, Slovenia. The esteemed event was formally inaugurated by the Institute’s director, Mr. Bojan Cizej, the esteemed hop elder, Aljoša Uršič, and hop princess, Minca Marovt.

M.Sc. Marjeta Bizjak, on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Food, extended a warm welcome to the participants. During her speech, she emphasized the importance of sustainable food production and the pressing environmental challenges facing the industry. She proposed irrigation, a circular economy, and the development of new hop varieties that are resilient to climate change, diseases, and pests as potential solutions. She expressed hope that the seminar would provide solutions and conclusions that would aid the ministry in its future endeavors.

Following her opening remarks, M.Sc. Bizjak delivered a compelling presentation on the Common Agricultural Policy 2023-2027, focusing on hop cultivation. All 110 attendees listened with rapt attention.

The two-day seminar featured 22 professional lectures presented in three sections, performed by a blend of in-house and guest experts.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the participants, especially the hop growers and experts in the field of hops, for their active engagement.
