The effects of pruning level in grapevines on canopy microclimate and plant water relations


Acta Horticulturae Sinica 17(1): 13-20
The effects of pruning level in grapevines on canopy microclimate and plant water relations
In trials in Bordeaux, France, grapevines Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot Noir were subjected to a system of pruning in which alternate shoots were pruned to 2-3 and 15-18 cm long, or were hedge-pruned lightly, heavily or to an intermediate level. In lightly-pruned vines, the radiation received within the canopy was no lower than with heavier pruning due to self regulation of growth, but shading of fruit might decrease quality.
