Timber weight

Unit of measure for the vigor and the earning capacity of the vine, High wood performance indicates strong vigor, high sustainable profitability, if necessary, too high soil care intensity, as well as high fertilization With nitrogen out. Low amounts of wood, however, show weak growth, yield overload, poor leaf / fruit ratio and stress problems, as well as shortcomings in the subsequent wine quality, especially in white wine. From the growth of the previous year can be closed to the growth of the following year. The ideal number of eyes is given when the vigilance in good proportion to the reserves carbohydrates in roots, trunk and branches stands. An important criterion for a good quality of grapes is therefore, at pruning the "correct" number of eyes to let stand. With the weight of the removed Rebholzes the optimal number can be calculated very well. Too few eyes are formed in the spring too quickly laubreiche sprouts, resulting in unfavorable foliage / fruit ratio with as a result bad fruit set and low earnings can lead.
