Breeding & Hop Genetics

The Hop Research Council is currently funding the grow-out of advanced hop test varieties for agronomic evaluation, chemistry, and experimental brewing trials.  This work supports the hop breeding program headed by Dr. John Henning, a USDA-ARS researcher based in Corvallis, Oregon, and the reestablished USDA-ARS hop breeding program located at the IAREC center in Prosser, Washngton.
