Growing in a more tropical climate will mean you will be dealing with pests and diseases that most don't deal with or know how to deal with specifically, so keep that in mind.

As for Nevada? You should have great success as I would thing your climate is relatively similar to southern Idaho. You may want to consider drip irrigation so you don't have to water by hand constantly and so you aren't wasting lots of water. It's much more efficient for targeted watering.

Thanks for the tips Randar...northern Nevada is a high desert climate and my tomatoes do great each year so I'm stoked about growing hops. I'll put them on drip for sure. Cheers!

Thanks Suds, I'll give them a call.

Randar, you are correct about the pests. We have so many different ones in Florida that just growing a lawn is a challenge.

FYI the CSU links are down. I wonder if they'd allow these to be hosted elsewhere since they seem to be down frequently?

I just got on the CSU link not sure why did not work earlier but an alternative is the presentation is on Ron Godin's page for CSU--

highhops.net I bought a couple of the plants from them and they are a lot easier to grow than the rhizomes.

I have an area in my backyard that I am reserving for growing hops but I haven't found any online store that will sell rhizomes to Washington state. Anyone have any sources?

You will have to buy them from a Washington state source. Do not attempt to circumvent USDA or state-mandated importation bans or quarantines.
