26k acres of hops in Washington!
And the liquor control board forecasts that the larger marijuana fields will only be about one acre... ya, right.

They didn't count my yard in their totals.  When it's dry, you can add one more pound to the total. :)

I also got almost 3lbs. of barley (mostly Lacey & Belford six row).

Every time I hear "crop report" I think of the movie "Trading Places."

Evan more according to this.

Look at some of those varieties go up, and some went down.

Hmmm, wonder how's come they forgot to list Amarillo?  I've seen a report that the crop is in excellent shape so far.  Maybe he soup-nazi has a hop growing relative?

Amarillo would be in "other" in the WA table. The foot note-

(D) Withheld to avoid disclosing data for individual operations

Amarillo was grown on one farm, I have heard there are now agreements for other farms to grow it. At an NHC talk 2011, it was stated that there were 480 acres of Amarillo.

Good news, because my hop harvest kind of sucked this year.
