Hops Application Protocol


Planting

BARE ROOT: Soak the root stock in a diluted solution (2oz./1 gallon of water)of Agrarian Technologies Bio-stimulant for at least 1 hour up to 12 hours.
CONTAINERS: Dip pots into diluted solution (2oz./1 gallon of water) until root ball is saturated.

Spraying

  • The first spray should be after the leaves are fully out in the spring.
  • Using the standard dilution rate of 2 oz./1 gallon of water, use enough pressure to make as fine a mist as possible, spray the tops and bottoms of leaves. Spray enough on the leaves to cover the whole surface area up until runoff.
  • Always allow 3 hours prior to rainfall or irrigation to ensure maximum absorption.
  • Ideal spraying times are early morning or late evening. Never spray during the heat of the day.
  • Leaves should be dry for most benefit.
  • Spray every two weeks or as needed with a minimum of three applications during the season. Usually, the rule of thumb is the last spray should be around one month prior to dormancy.

Drench

Still using the same rate (2oz./1 gallon of water), soak the root zone once a month or as needed. Some prefer more often but cut the rate to 1 oz./gallon of water.
