c. n.


A training system that is used in conjunction with single or double Guyot, cane pruned training, or with a cordon, spur pruned system. 1


VSP is very common in cool climate regions, with low to moderate vigorous growth, as it provides better air flow. VSP encourages better air flow through the vine. This is accomplished by keeping all the shoots growing vertically, and no vegetative growth below the cordon/cane. The increase in air flow helps prevent problem associated with disease, allowing the fruiting area to dry out quicker after rains. 2


Cultivars with an upright to semi-upright growth habit adapt well to the low cordon system and vertical shoot positioning. Shoot positioning consists of tucking the canes between the sets of catch wires as they develop. 3
