Hops in Maryland


In an effort to support the new and rapidly growing brewing industry in Maryland, 24 varieties of hops have been established at the University of Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station in Keedysville, Maryland. Although not the first hops planting on a research farm, this planting is about ½ acre and contains 24 varieties replicated three times and is being managed intensively with regard to fertility and irrigation, as well as insect, disease and weed management using IPM principles.
