The Hop scouting pocket guide for the US Upper Midwest and Northwest and Eastern Canada is a quick reference to the main pests of hops in these areas. It contains pest descriptions, growth stage guide and scouting calendar with relevant pests for Ontario hops. This is a publication of Michigan State University, with contributions from and OMAFRA Iowa State University . The publication is available for sale on the MSU Extension Bookstore’s website.
Because of costs associated with shipping the guide to Canada, we have had requests from a number of you on how to get it in Ontario. For one time only, a limited number of guides are currently available at select OMAFRA Resource Centres. Growers can pick them up from the front desks until supplies run out. To ensure as many Ontario hop producers as possible have a chance to access these guides, there is a limit of one guide per farm.
After supplies run out, guides can still be purchased online from the MSU Extension Bookstore.
