Answer: TRUNK OF LIVES


Dear Maurizio,
There are several factors that can lead to cracking in the trunk of a very old vine.
It could simply be an excessively long and cold winter season, followed by very hot and dry periods, in which case the plant will now be cracked, which should not however have any effect on the vigor and production of the plant.
It could be a fungal disease, like the loved ones that appear on the olive tree, in this case it is good to check the wood around the cracks: if it changes color or if it becomes soft or spongy, then it is good to intervene, removing all the altered wood and covering the wound with mastic for pruning, with an antifungal agent inside.
In principle it should not be something worrying, but it depends a lot on what will happen in the coming weeks: it is clear that if the plant is suffering, if the foliage has spots, if some branches deteriorate, if an unpleasant exudate emerges from the wounds, then it is a disease.
But knowing only that a plant has cracks on the trunk is not enough to make an overall diagnosis.
In any case, I advise you to watch over the development of the plant and to check the cracks, "disinfecting" them with a copper-based product, since, even if the cracks should have originated from the climate, they are now a sort of door to diseases all kinds of fungal; then clean the wood with an antifungal and / or cover the cracks with pruning putty.

    I am final, I am sorry, but this answer does not approach me. Who else, what can prompt?
