Abstract

The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of different pruning intensity treatments on grape yield and quality of Erciş grape cultivar in the year 2014. The gobble-trained grapevines grown on their own roots were subjected to three different pruning intensities during
winter pruning [16 buds/grapevine (8 shoots x 2 buds); 24 buds/grapevine (8 shoots × 3 buds); 32 buds/grapevine (8 shoots x 4 buds)]. Compared to low pruning intensity (16 buds/grapevine), high pruning intensity treatments (32 buds/grapevine) increased grapevine yield by 55%,
but decreased cluster weight by 17%, cluster width by 25.2%, cluster length by 12.5%, grape width by 10.9%, grape length by 6.7%, 100-grape weight by 22.7% and water soluble dry matter yield by 2.6%.
