This rootstock is quite resistant to nematodes and endoparasites, as the root phylloxera are Meloidogyne incognita and Meloidogyne hapla. On the other hand, its resistance to Meloidogyne arenaria nematodes is only moderate and appears to be susceptible to Agrobacterium vitis.
The vigor that gives the plant is medium, we could say that it is moderately resistant to active lime, up to 20%. It is not suitable for areas with low rainfall and without irrigation, as it is quite sensitive to drought. Nor would it be suitable for areas with salinity problems. With regard to humidity tolerance, we could say that it is intermediate, as well as adaptation to compacted soils.
