Double-storey planting

As a rule, when planting vines, a cutting (seedling) is planted. In double vine planting, the number of planting sites is halved and each is filled with two plants next to each other in the direction of the row. Each vine can only develop in one direction, which must be taken into account when pruning. In principle, this can be applied to almost all training systems. The advantage is a higher density of vines, the disadvantage is the danger of stealing on steep slopes. The system has not become established in practice. The picture shows a Styrian arch training with double vine planting. See complete lists under vine training (Systems ) and Vineyard Management (Activities).
