A training system in which growth is trained upward from low cordons, most often associated with Vitis vinifera wine grapes. Commonly referred to as VSP.1


VSP stands for vertical shoot position and refers to a popular type of trellis system used to grow grapes. In this trellis the canopy is not divided. The system is traditionally used where there is a high risk of fungus as the trellis keeps the foliage away from the ground and allows for good air circulation and light exposure. VSP offers many advantages over other trellis systems, including that it looks nice when trimmed, can be used with machine harvesters, all the fruit is grown in one zone, and it suits the majority of wine grapes.2


Cultivars with an upright to semi-upright grow habit adapt well to the low cordon system and vertical shoot positioning.3
