KEY STRENGTHS

Great top-end yield potential! Jumps out of the ground and exhibits very good plant health and staygreen throughout the season. Strong stalks holds up a very girthy ear!

WEAKNESSES

Average rating on Goss’s. Not for continuous corn.

POSITIONING

Really strong top-end yields for this maturity! Fertilize for a higher yield goal and intensively manage this hybrid as it responds very well. Did see some response to high rates of ALS chemistries, especially pre-emerge. Avoid ALS chemistries, but don’t skip the pre as yield is determined early with this hybrid as it flexes for girth often to 20 kernels around!

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.

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.

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!

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.
