Webinar focuses on winter grapevine pruning

Join Cornell AgriTech, Virginia Tech and Penn State Extension for a webinar on winter pruning of grapes.

The webinar, from 3-4:30 p.m. Jan 10, is free, but registration is required.

The webinar, “Top 10 Dormant Pruning Mistakes in Your Vineyard,” will cover basic and advanced pruning techniques for young to mature vines and will reveal the most commonly made mistakes and how to avoid or correct them. Dormant pruning of grapevines is arguably the most critical management task of the season. Many pruning methods are available. However, the best practices and rules of thumb will cross over all pruning methods and vine training systems.

This event is part of the Eastern Viticulture and Enology Forum Series, a collaborative effort between Cornell AgriTech, Virginia Tech and Penn State Extension for eastern U.S. grape growers and winemakers.

Registrants will receive access to the webinar recording.

The webinar is designed for vineyard owners and managers and winery owners.

Topics include:

  • Proper cuts for vine training of young vines (1-4 years)
  • Examples of bad pruning cuts and correct pruning cuts
  • Why the location of your cut matters
  • Pruning methods to maintain living wood
  • Top pruning mistakes of spur and cane-pruned vines
