Binding is an essential element to ensure that plants remains upright, thereby optimising fruit production. The main function of different binding systems is to train the plants to stay upright.
The binding technique is based on wrapping a ring of thread or tape around the stake and the plant’s stem, binding them together to prevent the stem bending or twisting while it grows.
This is undoubtedly the most traditional method. However, it can damage the plant, or even break the stem during the process. That’s why it requires highly skilled workers trained in the method.
