This educational system was developed in the 1980s by the Czech winegrower Vilém crinkly (1924-2013) derived from previously practiced vertical cordon education, developed.

Blue Portuguese. Sauvignon Blanc. Traminer however, it is not suitable. On a trunk of 80 to 90 cm length becomes in vertical extension one Kordonarm built up to a height of 160 cm (which gives the name = Verti kal raised Ko rdonarm).

Vertiko education = vertical cordon

On this vertical cordon of 70 to 90 cm length at intervals of about 25 to 30 cm floors with several one or two eyed spigot cut. The growing shoots then hang down freely and must be shortened up to three times. The row distance must be at least 2.5 m, better 3 m. The support is a sturdy wire frame framework with one or two strong tension wires. This form is occasionally used in Germany (eg on the Mosel), Austria and the Czech Republic. Due to the high proportion of waste wood, there is an increased susceptibility to anthracnose and increased infestation by mites, Another disadvantage is an uneven growth rate in the upper and lower floor area. Therefore, the system has not yet fully enforced. The system belongs to the large group of so-called Spurred cordon systems, See also Constellations below training system (Systems) and Weingarten Care (Activities).
