For 2014 the Hop Acreage chart on pages 4-5 has been enhanced to include 14 additional states. Data for Oregon, Washington and Idaho was provided by the USDA-NASS from annual grower surveys. Estimates for the remaining states were provided to Hop Growers of America by a network of growers, researchers, Extension specialists, brewers, and hop marketers. We will continue to expand and refine data collection for these and other new hop producing states in future years, including the addition of yield and production calculations. However, for 2014, the remaining reports in this publication are based only on NASS data collection for the Pacific Northwest.
Special thanks to members of the Great Lakes Hop Working Group for their assistance in estimating acreage for many of these additional states.
