In the vineyard, this means lifting the shoots (summer shoots, fruit shoots) and attaching them to appropriate support devices. The vine 's climbing capacity is not sufficient for it to grow upwards independently on the staple wires. The prerequisite for wild v ines was provided by larger areas (trees). This facilitates vineyard maintenance, grape harvesting and pest control, and also enables mechanical cultivation. The young summer shoots are arranged between the staking wires to form a slender foliage trellis. This gives the shoots support, prevents them from falling over or breaking off and improves the air and light conditions for the grapes.
