mechanical pruning

Definition

Wine

  • the process of using a machine to automate pruning the unwanted young shoots on a vine. The traditional method of pruning is to cut off the shoots by hand, but this is very slow work. Mechanical pruning works well if the method of training the vines suits the machinery; cordon training is perhaps the best suited to this.
