KEY STRENGTHS

Strong yielder with quick drydown. Fits well in Minnesota and all the way west into Montana. Fast emergence in the spring with very stable roots and stalks through the season.

WEAKNESSES

Could use some more flex for the sub-20,000 population areas.

POSITIONING

This hybrid can handle the variable ground well and adds great lower-end yield stability (i.e. it won’t make you look bad). Performs best when populations are above 25,000, which can also be said for most hybrids. It’s corn that will stand much better than most other 79 day hybrids out there. Plant it with confidence.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

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

The H2922 Hefty Brand Corn was the best on my farm last year. I’d grow it every year if the market was good for it.

Allen, Ward County, North Dakota

Great hybrid! H2922 outyielded everything on my farm and had the best test weight. The local elevator commented on the “best test weight we’ve had this year”!

Richard, Thompson, North Dakota

I wasn’t able to combine this until March and it was the best standing corn on the farm!

Thomas, North Dakota

H2922 had a good yield, a pound better test weight, and came off drier. It’s won the plot two years in a row and the field averages were good.

Jacob, North Central North Dakota

H2922 had amazing and fast emergence.
