So I have four varieties of hops; Willamettle (biggest by far 20 feet, but no spurs and starting to yellow), Nugget (clipped in May as Hop farmers suggested, bad decision, only weak shoots came up afterwards, no spurs...it is also yellowing) Centinnial (massive aphid damage early in season and only lower parts of the plant recovered...green as can be, no spurs) and Saaz (Extremely healthy, tons of spurs but it is also yellowing a bit)
So I decided to fertilize all of them with a flowering/rooting formula of 9-59-9. What do you think? I refuse to build my soil and get soil samples. I got into hops growing because of the so called ease.
The best picture I can find in the hop manual that was posted last week is this associated with Hop Stunt Viroid. I am not convinced that this is the problem though because there is no way they all have the virus coming from different locations and being different varieties.
My Willamette and Nuggets looks exactly like that. Enourmous side arms...some as long as six feet, but no signs of spurs.
Is there anything else I can do without trying to split the atom?
