Product Information

LG49C99 carries a strong agronomic package and has a wide area of adaptation. High management will reward producers with top end yields on all soils.
  • High yield potential form plants that stand well and have great early plant vigor.
  • Girthy semi-flex ears are produced by early flowering plants that have good drought tolerance.
  • Excellent plant health and good disease tolerances with very good greensnap, staygreen and fall intactness scores.
  • Responds to high management on all soils and under irrigation; avoid Goss’s Wilt prone environments.
