KEY STRENGTHS

Strong-yielding product for the northern and western market! Taller plant with impressive roots and stalks. Good disease tolerance, especially for Goss’s and northern corn leaf blight. Test weight is very good for this maturity.

WEAKNESSES

Average tolerance to stalk anthracnose. Not the best fit for continuous corn.

POSITIONING

This is a hybrid for broad placement across the Northern U.S. Very stable plant type with excellent yield potential and a good disease protection package. Responds well to higher planting populations and fertility inputs.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

The higher the number, the better the performance or rating.

We have had a really good run with Hefty Corn hybrids on our farm over the last several years. In fact, they have been our top-yielding hybrids for a number of years now.

Nathan, Watertown, South Dakota

I know that when I give my business to Hefty Seed Company, I can count on great yields from their products and outstanding service from their knowledgeable agronomists.

Paul, Southeast South Dakota

I first tried Hefty because of the price point. Then I put four hybrids in my competition plot with four other brands of corn. Hefty took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in my plot. That’s when I knew I was planting the real deal!

Ben, Moses Lake, Washington

I put my Hefty corn up to my favorite Pioneer and Dekalb, and wow does it perform! I’ll keep planting Hefty!

Luke, Iowa

The emergence and yields I have gotten from my Hefty Brand Seed have been outstanding!

Mark, Southeast South Dakota

I plant corn for Habitat for Hunting. My ground is really tough due to flooding it each year. I switched to Hefty Corn because of how well it handles tough, dry soil.

Mike, Othellow, Washington

Out of everything I planted, Hefty has always been the first corn out of the ground over the last three years.
