We started mechanically pruning our Marquette with our V-Mech pruning system this week. We can prune two rows simultaneously while the tractor and cart are moving at about 2 miles per hour. Although the vines are already dormant, we normally wouldn’t prune at this time of year but in order to be able to get all of the pruning done by early May, we have to start now. If time permits, we will remove more Mulberry trees. We’ve made great progress on the tree-removal project this year.
