Hops Variety Idenfication
Is it possible to determine the variety of a hops plant using parts of the plant itself - either using taxonomic features or genetic markers? I grew a variety this year, was extraordinarily successful, yet unfortunately, I do not have a record of the variety and I would like to know before I ramp up production on this one. If this is possible, please advise how and where to achieve this objective. Thanks.
