VINE MASTER PRUNERS Academy, the first and only international e-learning platform dedicated to vine pruning, provides the pruners’ community worldwide with the digital tool to learn the SIMONIT&SIRCH Pruning Method. FELCO produces high quality pruning tools that deliver precise and clean cuts, enabling pruning operators to optimally perform their pruning work. The collaboration will include both digital initiatives and in-person events, and touch on topics such as helping pruning operators to choose the best pruning tool for their work, how to maintain their tools and get the most performance out of them.
"We’ve been using FELCO pruning shears for years. They’re ergonomic and of excellent quality, which ensures two things that are fundamental for us: well-being of pruners and well-being of the vines we work with” - explains Marco Simonit, a co-founder of SIMONIT&SIRCH.
