Description

This article is the first of two publications that analyzes economic opportunities in forest farming for Indiana forest plantation owners. This study explores growing hops along the fence lines of newly established forest stands, while the second study investigates producing American ginseng in older (20- to 30-year-old) forests. The economic analysis presented in this article is developed for two hops varieties, 'Cascade' and 'Comet', based on marketability and presumed adaption to low sunlight, respectively.
