Below is the location of the NWC Hops Trial Site #1


Above are the results from the first harvest of NWC Variety Trial #1. Obviously Centennial was the highest average yielding variety. Surprisingly Cascade was a middle-producer, which is unexpected as Cascade has performed the best in our smaller trial at the UW site. Additional data sheds light on these results as one can compare the average yields with the number of plants emerging of a variety and the number of plants that actually produced those averages. Below is that data.

Above we can see that several varieties were busy growing, but did not yield. This is normal for first-year hops. Cascade and Columbus produced the highest percent of emerged plants that produced, but only 9/20 Columbus plants emerged. Mt. Hood produced the highest number of emerging plants, but only 26% of the plants yielded.
