Definizione

A shoot growing from the base or root of a tree or shrub and giving rise to a new plant, a clone of the plant from which it comes. 1

Nota

Suckers are shoots at the base of the vine that arise from latent buds. They are generally removed, but growers often retain one or two for replacing trunks. 2
These shoots are termed water shoots and for the majority of vine varieties have no bunches of grapes. Varieties differ in their production of water shoots; Gewurztraminer, for example, produces many, while others produce few. 3

Contesto

[...] Proposed Vineyard Methods: based on the results to date, cutting an infected vine off just above strong suckers followed by tcy injection into the vine via dp screws has become the method of choice. 4

-er = English agent noun ending, corresponding to L. -or. In native words it represents O.E. -ere (O.Northumbrian also -are) "man who has to do with," from W.Gmc. *-ari (cf. Ger. -er, Swed. -are, Dan. -ere), from P.Gmc. *-arjoz. 6
