Spurred Cordon Webinars: Pruning & Shoot Selection

   

Marco Simonit · 29 August 2023

Pruning is an operation that creates the foundation of a winery production

It can directly influence the lifespan of the vines, their production, quality of grapes and therefore the wine.

Shoot selection is essential for the balanced production.

  • It increases the plants’ efficiency in terms of use of the resources 
  • It helps improves the homogeneity of the shoots and bunches 
  • Helps decrease the risk of diseases
  • It increases our chances to harvest a “good year” harvest in fall

With these virtual video lessons you will be able to observe practical application of the principles of SIMONIT&SIRCH Pruning on the plants trained as monolateral Spurred Cordon. 

Marco Simonit will show us some specific cases, while observing the plants’ development and analyzing each specific choice he makes.
