just released:

2012 STATISTICAL REPORT
RELEASED JANUARY 2013
PRESENTED BY HOP GROWERS OF AMERICA
http://www.usahops.org/userfiles/fil...tat%20Pack.pdf

for those who want to know what is being grown where... for example, citra acreage is up 125%.

something that i noticed in the numbers is that a few varieties that are in decline in WA & OR are on the rise in ID. picking up the slack? growing lower-value varieties?

Interesting stats. I have a hard time deciphering what story they tell but interesting nonetheless. I did notice that Idaho hops have a tendency to have less seeds and stems than oregon and washington.
