Crop and market update & hop crop 2018 estimate

The crop estimate for the Hallertau was announced on August 23rd, meaning that crop 2018 estimates have now been submitted for all German hop growing areas.

A comparison of the 2017 crop results with crop 2018 estimates for the main hop growing areas worldwide is enclosed.

As a result of extreme weather conditions during the growing period in most of the european growing areas, we assume that alpha-acid contents will probably be below average. Unfortunately it is still too early to give exact values.

We will keep you informed about the crop progress.
