Description

The act of pruning testifies to the winegrower's expertise and determines the future of the vine. In particular, pruning will be decisive for the health of the plant, and subsequently the quality of the grape harvest and, hence, the economic profitability of the vineyard. Accordingly, establishing a training session on improvement of the cutting tool and its use not only helps prevent MSDs, but also helps "do the job properly".
