Simonit&Sirch Method is based on four fundamental principles applicable to all vine training systems. From our experience we have learnt that assist with pruning the natural ability of the vine to branching is the way to ensure vines an healthier and longer life.
The first goal of the Method is driving the branching development respecting vine’s organic growth.
The second assumption concerns the continuity of the sap flow trough the structure of the plant, separating desiccated areas from the main vascular flow.
Small cuts, on the same side and acted upon one or two years old wood. A precision pruning greatly reduces the area of the wound exposed, thus the risk of wood disease.
Pruning must allow for a portion of protective wood when cutting on two years old wood.
This device prevents from suffering the desiccation, that follows the cut from the main sap flow.
