Suitability for cultivation and agronomic production

Susceptibility to diseases and pests
Plantet is a fairly rustic variety which resists well to diseases and that can be used non-grafted in soils not favorable to phylloxera.
Technological potentiality
Plantet's bunches are medium in size and compact. The berries are small, firm. This variety has a tendency to berry shedding when it reaches maturity. Plantet produces very mediocre quality wines without diglucoside anthocyanins.
