Step Determine the Need for New Trunk Renewals

Look at the number, age and condition of the trunks of the vine. If a new trunk is needed and a trunk renewal cane is available at the base of the vine, immediately prune it and count it as one of the fruiting canes.

Prune this cane for a trunk renewal as long as possible up to about 4 inches below the top wire of the trellis. Make sure the node at the end of the trunk renewal cane is alive as indicated by green color at the pruning cut at the end of the cane. Trunk renewal canes often are not needed on young vines. Therefore, canes arising from suckers at the bases of young vines can often be pruned from the vine.
