July was compared to an 3-year average above average in terms of temperature (+1,7 °C). Rainfalls were slightly above average by (+13,0 mm). These data are from a weather station Zatec, present here for the Zatec region. Rainfalls are still compared to long-term average in deficit (-11,7 mm) from January to July.
Long-term drought has negatively affected hops growth in June. The hops were under the top of construction 0,5 - 1 m at the end of June. Hop growth has almost stopped, so more than half of the stands did not reach the top of the construction.
The first flowers and cones has appeared at the turn of June and July. Overall, hops can be evaluated as below-average. The beginning of the harvest we can expect between 15th and 20th August. Given the state of forest we are estimated yield of hops at an average 1,0 to 1,1 tons at the main variety - Saaz.
The health condition of hops is due to weather conditions satisfactory. The chemical treatment of hops against fungal diseases and animal pests (hop aphid, red spider mite) was applied smoothly.
