This species is widely used in Greece (it is the most widespread) because it is suitable for dry, alumo-late earth soils with a resistance to calcium carbonate of 40-45% in total and 17-22% in active (ordinary soil conditions in the country). Underlying lively, suitable for varieties of medium-early or late ones with high resistance to the rosaceous form of phylloxera, but sensitive to filamentous by the experience of the past in Greece, did not present problems of harmonious cohabitation when it was vaccinated with the cultivated in Greece varieties of grapes (Greek and foreign). Success in on-the-spot vaccination is high (greater than 90%).
