Just a reminder that the first ONHoppenings Lunch and Learn session of 2023 is scheduled for next Tuesday, May 16 at noon. OMAFRA specialists Evan Elford and Melanie Filotas are back with two online Zoom discussions for Ontario hop growers for the 2023 growing season. Each session will feature an initial 30-45 minute presentation from Melanie or Evan, after which we will open it up for participants to ask questions about any topic pertaining to hops. This month we will focus on pests and disorders to watch out for in 2023. Melanie will be providing an overview of the major pests of hops and their approximate timing during the growing season. Evan will provide an update on nutrient deficiency symptoms in hops based on a recently completed project conducted in Simcoe. Participants will then have the opportunity to ask Melanie or Evan questions about agronomics, pests or any timely issue affecting hops.
