Splitting The Chinook Hop Rhizome

Today we're trying to complete many of the needed tasks to get the hop farm off to a great start this season. Here is a split rhizome from the top row chinook hop. One of the chinook crowns was massive. This one alone was split to make 5 new mounds for 1/2 of the bottom row. All you need for splitting a rhizome to make a new plant is a small section of root showing new shoots. The bigger the hunk, the more successful your new plant will be during its first season.
