BISMARCK – The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) will hold a free hops growing workshop, Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Minot Holiday Inn Riverside, 2200 E. Burdick Expy, Minot.

“Interest in growing hops continues to grow,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “The workshop will be a great way for the department, producers and industry to work together to develop a market in North Dakota for a crop that has the potential to grow very well.”

Goehring added that all producers who are interested in growing hops or increasing their hop growing capacity are encouraged to attend.

Registration starts at 9 a.m., with the workshop running from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Lunch will be on the participants’ own time during a scheduled mid-day break.

The free workshop is sponsored by NDDA and paid for through a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) specialty crop block grant.
