head education

Term for a system of education in which several years at the end of the tribe again and again one year shoots be cut. This increasingly reinforces the trunk end and gets a head-like appearance. Without support framework results after the outgrowth of the shoots a bush form. There is a head training at the trellis educations with different bow sections (Flat, half, pendulum and full arch), as well Bock section and gobelet, That already in the antiquity used system is suitable for low-growth vines in low-precipitation areas and is now practiced mainly in the Mediterranean. The green shoots will be during the growth cycle multiple times gewipfelt so as not to let it get too long. See also Constellations below training system (Systems) and Weingarten Care (Activities).
