Grapevine Pruning 

Each woody fruit crop has unique requirements for dormant pruning. Left unchecked, most grapevines would exhibit a sprawling or disorganized growth habit. Dormant pruning is the first step to manage the canopy and ultimately contribute to sustainable production for growers by influencing disease incidence, vine management, winter injury repair, and fruit quality. The following pruning handout by Madeline Wimmer, Fruit Production Extension Educator, provides an in depth look at best practices for dormant pruning of cold climate grapevines.
