Harvest is underway for a unique crop in the state.

Hops, primarily used in beer brewing, are mostly grown in the Pacific Northwest. While the industry is small in Nebraska, it is growing rapidly.

Bruce and Annette Wiles of Plattsmouth, Neb. have grown hops for the past five years.

The two were hard at work harvesting their crop last week.
