Hop: Neoplanta


Neoplanta was bred at the Institute for Agricultural Research in Yugoslavia in the late 1960s or early 1970s, possibly by Mr. Andrej Mijavec (the hop breeder at the time). It is a cross from Northern Brewer and a male that originated from Styrian Golding and a Yugoslavian wild hop.

Has not been accepted well, therefore acreage is limited. Originally developed to replace Backa and a sister to both Dunav and Vojvodina.

Did you know?
  • Dwarf variety hops grow shorter in height than traditional varieties but, importantly, produce the same yield. This combination makes harvest easier.
Recently added hops
  • Storage: is based on the percentage of alpha acids remaining after 6 months at 20*F.
  • Oil composition percetages are based on the total percentage of oil in the hop. Example: 10 - 20% means that for the specific oil it is 10 - 20% of the overall oil make up.
