LH 4819 SS, designated as one of Latham’s top Gladiator hybrids, is an excellent early product for North Iowa. Not only does it portray a great defensive package needed for tough corn-on-corn situations, but this hybrid is high yielding with excellent test weight. It has good stalks with excellent roots, giving this hybrid healthy late-season intactness. Staygreen allows LH 4819 SS to move south of its comfort zone, too.
