This is understood in the vineyard lifting and attaching or untying the shoots (Summer shoots, fruit rods) on appropriate support devices. The ranking of the grapevine is not enough to grow independently on the staple wires. The requirement with the Wild vines was given by larger areas (trees). This will be Weingarten Care. vintage and control of pests, or even a mechanical processing is made possible. The young summer shoots are arranged between the stitching wires to a slender foliage trellis. As a result, the shoots are given support, prevented from falling over or breaking off and the air and light conditions for the grapes improved.
This must be punctual in the various forms of Wire frame education respectively. The right time is when the shoots have reached about 50 cm in length, which is the case in the northern hemisphere in late May. As a rule, this must be done two to four times. The rods are fastened to the wire manually using binding wire or staples or semi-automatic binding pliers. Machine stapling by means of foliage stapler is more likely to be practiced only at large farms. In a video (click to view) of the DWI The cutting and subsequent stapling (fastening) of a half-bow on the bending wire is clearly explained.
Previously, the shoots were attached using pre-soaked willow rods, which were attached to the waist with a leather belt. This method of environmentally friendly bonding is still practiced today (in the picture, the winemaker Gertrud Vaihinger from Weinstadt-Schnait in the growing area Wuerttemberg ).
At different education forms can be omitted stapling (for example, single pile, minimum cut. Trier wheel. reversal education and Vertiko ). See also below training system and pruning as well as a complete list of all activities and tools in the vineyard under the keyword Weingarten Care,
