Boiler Hops Logo

​Burrs and Cones. Both of the trellises in the Boiler Hopyard have begun flowering and coning. The primary shoots were pruned at the top of the net on the dwarf trellis in order to promote lateral growth. The pruning took place on May 19 and again on May 28. The bines on the dwarf trellis have been flourishing with flowers and now cones. Out of the six cultivars in the hopyard, Galena was the first to reach the top of the dwarf trellis and begin flowering. The tall trellis began flowering in early June along with the dwarf trellis, but after adding the last dose of nitrogen the plants in the tall trellis began putting on more vegetative growth, including lateral branches.

​The Indiana State Department of Agriculture is officially launching the Indiana Grown Initiative on July 7, 2015. This free marketing program will enable all Indiana agricultural and food products to be labeled and marketed with an Indiana brand. It is a very comprehensive program that will include many market channels and farm products. This program has immense potential to create new local and regional market channels for Indiana agricultural and food businesses through three initiatives: 1) Educate consumers on the importance of buying Indiana Grown products; 2) Increase networking and sales opportunities for Indiana farmers; and 3) Expand support for Indiana processors in their effort to process more Indiana Grown products. There are four categories for the program: 100% Indiana – Must be grown and/or all ingredients from Indiana Prepared in Indiana – Ingredients can be sourced elsewhere, but 100% of production is in Indiana Partner – Company or institution[Read More…]
