The weather was for the development and growth of the hops favorable. Most areas outgrew the top of the construction, a smaller part of the hop gardens is just below the top of the construction. Deployment of blooms is very nice. The first cones had already showed up in the middle of the month and the end of the month some cones have measured about 1-2 cm.
Given the recent developments in the weather we can expect a very good cones creation. The beginning of the harvest we can expected around 20th August. Given the state of forests we are estimated yield of hops at an average 1,1 to 1,2 tons at the main variety - Saaz.
The health condition of hops is generally good. The weather gets placed increased demands for protection against fungal diseases. Protection against aphids and red spider mite also took place without any problems.
