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 this virtual video lesson you will be able to observe practical application of the principles of SIMONIT&SIRCH Shoot Selection on the plants trained as monolateral Spurred Cordon. 

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