Hops projects getting started

Sue Colucci, area specialized agriculture agent based in western NC, has a great blog, which alerted me to a colleague just down the road on campus, Rob Austin. Austin, a research assistant in the NC State Soil Science Department is conducing research on hops in North Carolina. Full Steam Blog, the web presence of a brewery set to open in Durham this spring, caught Rob in the act planting his first rhizomes.
