May hop report

hop report slideThe first half of May 2017 was relatively cold. Especially the night temperatures were very low in this period (within May 9th and May 11th they even decreased below freezing point). The warming started only during the second half of the month, when the temperatures exceeded 30°C in last three days of May. These extremely high daily heats caused the hail storms in Auscha region, more concretely they affected the Cooperative Liběšice, Chmel Polepská Blata Comp., Agro Hošťka Comp. and the farmers Macek Miroslav and Drahota Stanislav. The first estimations speak of damage of approx. 60 ha at rate of 80% to 100%. As far as the precipitations are concerned, this May was deeply below average, the rainfalls reached just 21 mm, i.e. 40% of long-term average. For the vegetation, mainly the field crops, this is a very negative phenomenon.
