Reverse Education

In this high vine training system, the shoots are trained "in reverse" from top to bottom instead of from bottom to top. The cordons are pulled up very high so that the fruit shoots can grow downwards in sufficient length and not lie on the ground. The drooping shoots can lead to the formation of bells and thus to a compaction of the foliage. This poses the risk of poorer penetration of plant protection products and thus higher disease infestation such as fungi. For this reason, in one of the variants the foliage is pressed by a "catch wire" onto the side facing away from the wind, while the grapes are on the side facing the wind. This way, the grapes are not covered by overhanging shoots.
