The Great Lakes Hop Working Group (GLHWG), funded by a grant from the North Central Integrated Pest Management Center, formed in 2016 to provide region-specific pest management support to producers in re-emerging hop production areas outside of the Pacific Northwest.
The goal of this working group is to continue to connect and expand the network of hop educators and researchers working in the Midwest and Eastern U.S. as well as Ontario and Quebec and to focus their efforts on addressing the priority needs of the industry. These regions represent similar growing conditions that differ significantly from those in the primary production region in the Pacific Northwest. Current members include 66 representatives from twelve Universities and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and Le Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries, et de l’Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ). Participating in this survey is your chance to have your needs heard by top researchers in the country!
In an effort to identify and address hop research and outreach needs, the Great Lakes Hop Working Group has developed a brief survey (less than 3 minutes) and are asking hop farmers, propagators and associated professionals to participate. The results of the survey will drive future research and outreach efforts. You may complete the tablet and phone-friendly survey online at: https://msu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1LWQCQ7rWxUuRiR.
Please complete the survey before October 31st and help us spread the word!
