Cultivating Hops for Cone Production in Nebraska

EC3050

The hop cone is the primary product of agronomic value when growing Humulus lupulus L. (common hop). Cones are modified stem and leaf structures that protect the female flower cluster. Lupulinic resins accumulate on the cone bracts during maturation and contain the chemical compounds used in flavoring beer. Chemical compounds vary by varietal character and influenced by the environmental and geographical conditions in which they are grown.
