Two questions, My cascades have a brownish red ring around the outer egde of the leaf, and some have patches of brown on the leaf. Any ideas? The second question, Are ants a problem? I have them climbing all over my string for the bines.

Do you have a pic of the leaf?

Ants shouldn't be a problem.

"Sounds" like the beginning of a nutrient issue, namely potassium, which is hard to diagnose.

Hop Disease and Pest Symptoms

The problem with nutrient issues is that "too much" looks the same as "too little" and also that overwatering, be it natural or irrigated, has the same appearance. Another fun one is that some of the micro-nutrient deficiencies combined can appear similar to a macro-nutrient deficiency.

Starts to make sense why (some of) the bigger yards spend so much on detailed soils testing and custom blended fertilizers.

Ain't hop growin' Fuuuuuuuun?

brownish red edges of the leaves sounds like Phosphorus deficiency. do they look scorched or burnt at all ? usually phsphorus deficency is a problem with soil pH moreso than a lack of phosphorus in the soil, if you've ever fertiized at all you shoulnd't have a phosphorus deficency unless the pH is so acidic the plant can't get the phosphorus from the soil. a little lime might help. call the county agent and get a soil test
