In India, viticulture is one of the most important horticultural industries in views of its area, production, productivity, value addition and employment creation in both rural and urban areas. The grape in West Bengal is now a new fruit crop for utilizing the up and medium fallow lands in western part of the state. In this part, the soil is red and laterite and acidic in nature and this area received very low rainfall and experience a long dry spell during month of January to May. In such climatic condition pruning is often considered as emergency practice. Correct time and proper pruning very important for productive and healthy over the life of grapevine. As there was no attempt was made to find out proper time of pruning on grape vines under this climatic condition. The aim of this research was to standardize the proper time of pruning on cultivar Arka Trishna under this condition. The investigation was therefore under taken in this direction. The study was conducted at Taldangra in Bankura district of West Bengal (India) during 2012 and 2014. The vine was pruned on four different dates i.e. 20th January, 30th January, 10th February and 20th February. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with six replications. The vines were trained on ‘Y’-trellis system. The results indicated that maximum yield and yield attributes character per vine was recorded when vines were pruned on 30th January. The berry quality was increased when vines were pruned on 20th February. On the basis of present findings, it can be concluded that 30th January appeared to be the appropriate time for pruning the vines under Bankura conditions with regard to yield attributes and quality.
