Only one acre is planted, with nearly 1,000 plants, but it required a lot of work and a team of horticulturists to accomplish the new hops endeavor at the Iowa State University Horticulture Research Station north of Ames.

Nick Howell, ISU Horticulture Research Station superintendent and a former student of Buck’s, continues the strong tradition of rose research at Iowa State. Earth-Kind® trials are helping identify the most consistently beautiful, low-care, pest tolerant roses for our region. Howell's website www.extension.iastate.edu/earthkind has information about Earth-Kind trials, Iowa State research and Buck roses.
