WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue Extension is tapping into the craft brew craze.

It says farmers new to producing hops or considering getting started can learn about opportunities and risks through two Purdue Extension webinars and a tour of new research plots.

The free webinars will be on Thursday and on July 10. Thursday’s webinar on managing pests can be accessed through the Purdue Extension’s website. Both webinars will be recorded for viewing later on a new Hops Production webpage hosted by the Purdue Department of Horticulture.

The tour will be on Aug. 21 at Purdue University’s horticultural research farm at the Throckmorton Purdue Agricultural Center south of Lafayette.
