With the highest rhizobia count in the industry, you can expect more nitrogen production and uptake. Plus, we include an extender for long-lasting viability on the seed.
4 SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDES
By bumping up the fungicide count and diversity, you’ll control more diseases later in the season. We commonly see tough diseases like pythium, rhizoctonia, and phytophthora suppressed for a couple months!
To make this an even bigger selling point for you, Hefty Complete comes with the only insect guarantee we know of in the industry. You can get up to 2 free resprays for soybean aphids, bean leaf beetles, grasshoppers, and cutworms if they show up at an economic threshold throughout most of the season. Talk to one of our agronomists about the details to the respray program.
Nutri-Cycle ST provides 26 active, beneficial strains of bacteria and fungi found in Hefty Compete Soybean. This alone has shown an average gain of 3.75 bushels/acre in our research. Used in Hefty Complete as a soil amendment, the bacteria and fungi begin working in the soil right away to make the most vital nutrients readily available for the young soybean in our observations. Increased cold, salt, and drought tolerance, more developed root systems, and improved nutrient uptake are other benefits we have seen from Nutri-Cycle.
This is perhaps the most exciting differentiator of Hefty Complete Soybean Seed Treatment. HeatShield is comprised of beneficial fungi designed to symbiotically live within the plant as it grows and develops. We have found these fungi to increase tolerance to cold and salty soils, drought, and heat, along with general plant health enhancements. In normal conditions, HeatShield has demonstrated a 2-6% yield advantage in many of our trials, but in fields under severe stress, we have seen huge gains.
I often tell seed companies and seed treatment providers I couldn’t care less about how well their product works if it doesn’t flow out of the seed tender and the planter. We have tested thousands of combinations to find the very best seed treatment mix for both efficacy and seed flowability, as well as reduced dust-off.
WE ALSO OFFER FREE HEFTY COMPLETE FOR REPLANTS

FINALLY, AND PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANTLY,
our price point is very similar to competitive products that only contain 4 or 5 components, despite the fact we have 38 components, free resprays, free seed treatment for replants, and far superior yields to other seed treatments. Even our agronomists have asked me why we have priced Hefty Complete at this level, because I’ve had many of our people tell me, “We can sell this product for several dollars per acre more, based on our emergence, stands, and yield results.” Here is my response to that. Unlike other seed companies, we aren’t trying to get rich selling seed treatments. We are trying to provide you with a great value on the seed treatment so you use it on every acre. Then, when our beans outyield the competitors’ (which usually happens), you will be more likely to buy beans from us again in the future.
I realize this article probably seems like a sales pitch to you, but our goal is always to bring you products at a good price that deliver a great value and an excellent chance for a positive return on investment. If you aren’t currently using our seed treatment or our beans, I would challenge you to put 5 of our varieties with Hefty Complete vs. 5 competitive varieties with the competitor’s standard seed treatment. I would be shocked if our average yield isn’t at least a bushel or two more than the competitor’s. Since our pricing is likely the same or less, that means more money in your pocket.
