The LUPPOLO.IT project, funded by MiPAAF (D.G. n. 96732 of 12/28/16) and co-ordinated by the Consiglio per la ricerca in agricoltura e l’analisi dell’economia agraria (CREA), is the first national research project on hop cultivation in Italy.



The Council for Agricultural Research and Economics (CREA) will participate at the "VIII Italian NIR Spectroscopy Symposium (NIRITALIA 2018)", which will be held in Genoa on 30-31 May 2018.
On this occasion, the study "Classification of international hop genotypes by near infrared spectroscopy" will be presented. It successfully investigated for the first time on the potential of vibrational spectroscopy coupled with chemometrics to assess the geographical and varietal origin of different international hop genotypes grown in Italy.
