Each year the BarthHaas Group, of which HPA is a proud member, publish the Barth Report. This year is the celebration of the 140th edition of the report, a long-lasting constant in an industry that has gone through a process of change again and again.
The Barth Report provides timely statistics on global and regional hop agronomics, usage and trends in the hops and brewing markets.
The 2017 crop results are explored in the snapshot of Australia, and for the third year in succession, the Australian total hop acreage has increased – rising by 16% from 2016-2017. This has been made possible by HPA’s continued investment in productivity as we try to keep pace with our customers needs.
