A - Execution of the graft (June in year 1)
T-bud or C-bud technique, with buds which have been selected, treated, refrigerated and tested, guaranteeing secure, immediate bud burst.
B - Bud burst (June-July in year 1)
After 15 days, 70% of the buds burst and the development of the remainder is completed by the first crescent moon.
C – Shoot development (from July to September in year 1)
The grafts complete bud differentiation by July, reaching lengths of more than 1.5 metres by the end of September, and the maturing of the wood is completed by the end of October.
D - Winter pruning (February-March of the following year)
Pruning and bending of the perfectly mature cane. The canes reach the diameter and length required for pruning leaving a normal number of buds.
E - Production and growth in the following year
The development of the buds is equivalent to that of a fully-active plant and production is completely in the norm.
F – Integrity of the seal
The longitudinal section of the plant shows the perfect continuity between the scion and the old stock. This guarantees a normal lifespan and no future detachments (contrary to what can be found with other types of graft); this type of graft will also withstand mechanical harvesting.
