Diseases of the Hop


A NUMBER of interesting communications have recently appeared dealing with diseases of the hop. In particular a paper by E. S. Salmon and W. M. Ware (Annals of Applied Biology, 1925, 12, 121) discusses in detail a downy mildew which was first found in Europe in. 1920 at the experimental hop gardens of Wye College. Since that year the intensity of the disease has been increasing rapidly, and it may become a serious factor in hop production in the future.
