Hop Harvest 2016

 

The Central Institute for Supervising and Testing in Agriculture (CISTA) announced the official 2016 crop results. The total hop harvest in the Czech Republic reached 7 712 t of hops.

 

This official figure includes Saaz, Auscha and Tirschitz regions. Average national yield was 1,61 t/ha (including all varieties grown in the Czech Republic).  It has been historically the best yield for Czech hops since 1920. Czech Hop harvest reached good result after a very poor crop of 2015 where we recorded one of the lowest results in yields and alpha content. The combination of 2015 and 2016 crop gives us an average result which corresponds to crop 2014. The quality of 2016 crop can be regarded as good as the the plant health and slightly above the long term average with regards to alpha acid content.

 

Current demand for Czech hops encouraged growers to increase their acreage. It has led to growing hop area back to almost 5 thousands hectars that the Czech Republic had in 2010. Hops from current acreage have been already contracted to a high level for next few years.
