Urban Roots says  it will plant 10 different kinds of hops.

Urban Roots' executive director Jeff Bryant says they could be a workable alternative for farmers because hops require much less water than other crops such as alfalfa.

Bryant told the Reno Gazette-Journal that the craft beer market is growing in Reno, and the new hops will give them quality, local product.

Bryant says planting will begin in April and the hop vines will take about three years to reach maturity.
