Abstract:
Is there a future for North Carolina hops farming? Hops grows best in cool climes of the northern latitudes, where they take in black loam and bask in summer daylight that can last as long sixteen hours; in other words, not central North Carolina, with unforgiving clay, hot and humid summers, warm winters, and a shorter day length. But North Carolina brewers, growers, researchers, and beer drinkers agree that with the right hops variety, one grown to tolerate less sunlight, along with investments in farm machinery and processing centers, hops could be a robust niche industry in this regions and in the mountains, where there are fledgling hops farms.
