The influence of light conditions on the in vitro growth reaction of hop was investigated by the cultivation of micro cuttings from 4 cultivars - Bullion, Target, Naget, Zlaten pivovar. The hop explants were put to the test under the following light conditions: light intensity - 1000 lx, 2000 lx, 3000lx; photoperiod - 16/8 h day/night; 12/12 h day/night; 8/16 h day/night. The best results for in vitro growth of hop explants were received under the influence of 2000 lx light intensity and photoperiod - 12/12 h day/hight.
