Interpretive Summary: A First International ISHS Humulus Symposium occurred from 1 to 7 August 2004, in Corvallis, Oregon. This initial meeting brought scientists from 13 countries to discuss the serious challenges and current advances facing hop development and culture. Dr. Kim E. Hummer, US Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, (USDA, ARS) National Clonal Germplasm Repository-Corvallis, and Dr. John Henning, USDA, ARS, National Forage Seed Research Center-Corvallis, were the co-conveners for this event.

Local tours of the hop research facilities at the USDA, ARS, Oregon State University, Department of Botany and Plant Pathology, and the Department of Food Technology were provided. A post-symposium tour visited farms of Oregon and Washington hop growers, processing plants, and regional breweries. The Commission on Plant Genetic Resources coordinated this symposium in conjunction with the Section of Aromatic and Medicinal Plants. More than 100 participants attended the combined meetings.
