This educational system was developed by the Czech winegrower Vilém in the 1980s crinkly (1924-2013) derived from vertical cordon training, which was practiced earlier. It is suitable in steep slopes for certain grape varieties such as Blauburger. Green Valtellina. Pinot Blanc. Pinot Noir. Riesling and Rotgipfler, For the varieties Blaufränksich. Dornfelder. Blue Portuguese. Sauvignon Blanc. Traminer however, it is not suitable. On a trunk of 80 to 90 cm in length is a vertical extension Kordonarm cm built up to a height of 160 (thus the name results kal = Verti hoisted Ko rdonarm).

Vertico education = vertical cordon

On this vertical cordon of 70 to 90 cm in length, floors with several one- or two-eyed are spaced about 25 to 30 cm apart spigot cut. The growing shoots then hang freely and have to be shortened up to three times. The row distance must be at least 2.5 m, better 3 m. A stable wire frame with one or two strong tension wires serves as support. This form is used sporadically in Germany (e.g. on the Moselle), Austria and the Czech Republic. Due to the high proportion of waste wood, there is an increased susceptibility to anthracnose and increased infestation through mites, Another disadvantage is an uneven growth rate in the upper and lower floor area. That is why the system has not yet really established itself. The system belongs to the large group of the so-called Spurred cordon systems, See also lists below training system (Systems) and Weingarten Care (Activities).
