Driving supported by a trellis or vine is necessary. Since it is a variety with a lot of vigor, and with high production, in the end it is loaded with a lot of weight and it is advisable to use a support or driving system. The recommended driving supported on trellises or Parral.

It has very compact bunches and requires chemical or manual thinning to obtain good qualities. Excess compactness is often a problem in table grapes. This variety has this characteristic, therefore, to obtain higher quality fruits, chemical thinning that can be done with gibberellic acid is recommended.
