Also known as “cane replacement” pruning, this family of vine-training systems is predicated on the removal of the previous year’s fruiting wood, which the plant then replaces with fresh growth in the spring. These systems tend to be preferred for growers looking toward high-density plantings, whereby the vines compete for water and nutrients — a process that keeps …

Classification of Different Systems. Vine training systems can be broadly classified by a number of different measurements. With a cane-trained system, there are no permanent cordons or branches that are kept year after year. The vine is pruned down to the spur in winter, leaving only one strong cane which is then trained into becoming the main branch for next …

The recommended retained bud number per vine varies across popular training systems planted at different vine spacings (Table 1). Higher bud densities can be retained in systems that have single fruiting zones with canopies that are divided via shoot training (e.g., Watson and Ballerina). Such systems promote greater fruit zone space and limit cluster …

There are many different types of training systems used for grape production throughout the world. The best system for your grape vine depends on the cultivar grown, the climate, soil fertility, and personal preference. This fact sheet details two common systems, the 4-cane single-trunk Kniffin system (cane pruned) and bilateral high cordon (spur pruned). Both systems …

The different training systems are described hereunder. Single-stake System . A single shoot is allowed to develop from the vine of rooted cuttings and is trained vertically by staking to a support. When this shoot reaches a height of 120 cm. it is tipped and allowed to produce 4 to 5 secondary branches or canes, which are pruned after every bearing season. The main stem …

Cane pruning requires that long, 10-20 node fruiting canes be retained for fruiting. Spur pruning utilizes short, 2-6 node canes for fruiting. The reason for this short overview is that training systems differ in the type of pruning required, and reference will be made to either type of pruning when explaining the different types of trellis

We conducted a two-year field trial to compare Pinot noir cane and spur pruned vine productivity from dormancy to harvest in a vineyard trained to a unilateral Guyot training system where vines were head trained and cane pruned to one, 10 node cane and one 2-bud renewal spur or cordon trained and spur pruned to 6 spurs of 2 nodes per spur. Key Findings: …

The canes or spurs are the renewable parts of the grapevine's system and will be replaced via the winter pruning system every year. The main difference here is that spurs are short stubs with two to three buds while canes are longer, and typically have around six to twelve buds. Cane pruning

In-row vine spacing, between-row spacing and canopy height can all vary a great deal within the VSP-training system, and both spur- and cane-pruning techniques can be applied within its confines, resulting in a wide range of canopy architecture. Furthermore, the VSP system seems to best conform to vineyard mechanization, which is a big advantage at a time when …

There are several very successful backyard vineyards that employ different types of trellis and training systems. I have seen both TWC and GDC quite often used for downward growth tendency vines, and many hobby growers are happy with the results. In my experience though, I find that the 9-wire VSP quadrilateral cane system stands out because it has so many …

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best training system for my grape vine??

There are many different types of training systems used for grape production throughout the world. The best system for your grape vine depends on the cultivar grown, the climate, soil fertility, and personal preference.

What is the best cane system for downward growth tendency vines??

I have seen both TWC and GDC quite often used for downward growth tendency vines, and many hobby growers are happy with the results. In my experience though, I find that the 9-wire VSP quadrilateral cane system stands out because it has so many advantages for both vinifera and hybrids.

How do you train a variable vine??

Vines are generally trained as in Bilateral Cordon system with cordons of adjacent vine, providing twice as much trellis space for each vine. Occasionally each vine is trained quadrilaterally to occupy both sides of the trellis rather than alternating vines.

What is the best trellis and training system for a vineyard??

The trellis and training system that I recommend most often is a 9-wire VSP system. It has a trunk wire, two fruiting wires, and three catch wire pairs. I like this VSP system for most new backyard vineyards because it has so many nice features.
