So far, we can assess the condition of vegetation as good. The stands are mostly grown to the top of the construction. Heads are standard as compared to last year.
Overall, hops can be evaluated as average. Hop harvest will probably start in the period 20 - 25 August.
Due to the development of the weather and the condition of the stands we estimate the yield of hops rather average 1.05 - 1.15 t for the variety Saaz. For other hop variety Sladek, Premiant and Agnus the yield could be around 2.0 t.
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.
