Register for the FELCO highlight in November and take part in Germany's first-ever national vine-pruning competition!
The winner of the contest will go on to face the best vine-pruners from all over the world at the international competition which will take place in Switzerland on March 10, 2020. The aim of the event is to demonstrate the importance of a correct pruning technique. Participants will be allocated a number and a row in which they have to prune a pre-determined number of vines within a set period of time and will be judged for proficiency, accuracy and speed by a trained jury using an evaluation sheet.
