Traditional approach to spur pruning and its consequences
Marco Simonit analyzes 15-year-old spur pruned vine plants that have been pruned for years with the repositioning cut (return cut) and crown head (multiple localized cuts). We see how these techniques which do not allow for branching can cause deterioration of the plants, unbalanced shoot development and grape production and loss of the vegetative points. Incorrect pruning can cause problems even after 15 years only.
In this video Marco Simonit comments on the most common mistakes that can bring to these consequences.
