July was above average over the 30-year average (+3,0 °C). The rainfalls were very below average (-41,6 mm). These data are from Žatec weather station, which we present here for the Žatec region.
However, rainfalls from January to July are still against the long-term average in deficit (-42.6 mm). The whole month was practically dry and hot, in a total of 14 days was measured at 30 ° C.
The state of vegetation due to weather development is in good condition. The hops are grown up to the top of the construction, some areas are almost completed heads, while the some hops are still blooming. Overall, hops can be evaluated as average. The beginning of the harvest we can expect between 10th and 15th August.
Due to weather development and the state of the stands we estimate the yield of hops rather below the average of 0,90 - 1,0 t for the variety Žatecký poloraný červeňák.
The health condition of the hops is good. Chemical protection of hops was managed without problems as treatment against animal pests (hop aphid, red spider mite) as well as fungal diseases.
