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.
Northdown was bred at Wye College in Kent, England as higher alpha acid alternative to the hops of the time (1970s). A result of breeding Northern Brewer and an unknown German varietal.
