Essential? In whos world? Sorry man, I grow tons of hops - no 'foliar feeding' needed. Just use good quality compost as a top dressing, and be a good general 'steward of the soil' adding lots of organic matter to your soil each fall and through the winter. You will have awesome yields.
Pretty sure foliar feeding is debunked as almost useless. Google it one way or another, you will find whatever answer you WANT to find. I have tried it, noticed NO difference whatsoever.
To each thar own...
