This course will build on prior study and experience with pruning grapevines by discussing pruning concepts beyond the basics and vine balance.
Timing: Four online lessons of approximately 20 minutes. Lessons are mainly audio with supporting documentation. Practical exercises using grapevines (vines need not be in the dormant season) are also be included, to undertake in the students own time.
Experience level required: Intermediate (vineyard experience required). Some experience in pruning vines required, as well as completion of the Basic Pruning course.
Next steps: This course is followed by Advanced Pruning 2 which expands into vine capacity and the ideal vine. Advanced Pruning 2 is available including a 40 minute tutorial with Dr Glen Creasy to review the course content (specific dates provided at purchase).
