Temperatures in July were above average (+ 2.1 ° C) compared to the 30-year average. Rainfall summary (12.6 mm) represents only 18% from long-term average.
Vegetation development compared to last year is about two weeks late. Flowering started in the second half of the month. Even though hops stands are in better condition than last year. Sufficient rainfalls in June created a sufficient supply of moisture in the soil. The large majority of stands grew to the top of the construction. Only in a few smaller localities are the heights 50 - 100 cm below to the top of the construction.
This year we can expect a slightly above-average harvest, +/- 1.2 t per hectare for the variety Saaz. For other varieties 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.
