French term or phrase: talle/tailler en coursons
Same excerpt as my previous question, from a description of vine training systems in Cognac:

Deux modes de taille se développent actuellement :
- l’arcure haute, taille longue non palissée qui allie les avantages de la taille longue (fertilité, longévité) et l’économie du relevage,
- l’alternance, une année sur deux, d’une taille longue attachée à plat avec une taille en coursons. Chaque année le pré taillage peut ainsi être appliqué sur la partie de l’exploitation taillée en coursons.

My initial understanding was "spur training" or "spur pruning" but I could really use some expert advice for the context.

Thanks so much everyone.
