Can someone help me identify what's going on with my first year goldings' leaves. They haven't been wet but it has been really hot.

Is it my watering schedule?

I did a little research and the end result I found was a calcium deficiency. Calcium deficiency gives your hop leaves a scorched appearance. Check www.hcbi.com.

I don't disagree. I will propose the more I mess with my hops, the more messed up they become.
I would anmend your soil, mulch, and consider a better water system for next year. Good luck.

I've had Japanese beetles eat the roots on my Hostas & make the leaves look like that.

That link isn't good, but I found the website w google. The leaves look burned on more than just the edges, more like the mag deficiency pic, but still looks like something else. Thanks for the suggestion, and for researching for me

Dude, Your plants are suffering from extremely high salts (usually caused by too much fert.) You're petting the puppy to death. On hot days the plant is rapidly transpiring and losing water from it's leaves. The water moving upward thru the plant is carrying the salts; which acculmulates at the expanding leaf edge (like salt on the rim of a Margarita). When the concentration gets too high - poof!

Yeah, I'm mostly trying to collect info so I can learn from my first year. Thanks...

I read an article that supports this being a deficiency... But a potassium deficiency. I'm gonna try some compost to see if it helps.

Any more suggestions?

That could be, but I only fertilized when I planted...and it's only on some of the middle leaves. I would think salt burn would be everywhere...

No problem! I'm a first year myself. And my hops I derooted and cut from a friends plants without really knowing what I was doing. I broke my shovel during the process because the dirt was so hard and rocky. Good luck and tell your hops I said feel better

Are these old leaves? Old leaves just turn yellow as they've done what they were suppose to and are now 'spent'. My healthy plants have big old yellow leaves on them while the young leaf is bright and green. Not saying 'this is it', just curious.
