c. n.

Definizione

A miniaturized, resting flowering shoot that is lying dormant within some bud scales. 1

Nota

Often such buds are the result of poor environmental conditions at critical times during the season. However, vineyard practices also impact bud development through their influence on numbers of shoots and buds produced, amount of shading during cluster initiation, amount of crop to be supported by available leaf area, allocation of carbohydrates during fruit ripening and post-harvest periods, etc. 2

Contesto

After the 2003 season, the winter buds of unthinned vines had significantly less developed embryonic clusters than did vines without a previous crop or with 50% crop. 3

Etimologia

Bud = 1398, bodde, origin unknown, perhaps from O.Fr. boter "push forward, thrust," itself a Gmc. word (cf. Du. bot "bud," O.S. budil "bag, purse," Ger. Beutel), or from O.E. budd "beetle".

Winter = O.E., "fourth season of the year," from P.Gmc. *wentruz (cf. O.Fris., Du. winter, O.S., O.H.G. wintar, Ger. winter, Dan., Swed. vinter, Goth. wintrus, O.N. vetr "winter"), possibly from PIE *wed-/*wod-/*ud- "wet" (see water), or from *wind- "white" (cf. Celt. vindo- "white"). The Anglo-Saxons counted years in "winters," cf. O.E. ænetre "one-year-old." 5
