KEY STRENGTHS

Excellent yields and runs east-west quite well. You’ll love this plant and its strong stalks and roots plus a big girthy ear. Strong Goss’s wilt protection and good western stress tolerance. Plant this one first as it exhibits powerful emergence.

WEAKNESSES

Not a great choice for silage, especially compared to Hefty Corn 4244.

POSITIONING

This is the SmartStax┬« RIB Complete┬« version of the high demand Hefty 4032 hybrid. Broad placement from east to west. Has a very good fit in continuous corn situations with strong Goss’s protection as well as enhanced anthracnose stalk rot tolerance. Push the fertility early as this hybrid responds very well.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

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

My Hefty agronomist helps me get all of my questions answered and gets plans in place for a good growing year.

Clarence, Southern Minnesota

I am very happy with the corn and soybean products that have been recommended over the last couple of years.

Dennis, Southern Minnesota

Hefty gives me a lot of flexibility. Even if I need to change my seed order right up until I put the seed in the ground.

Randy, Southern Minnesota

Hefty’s does a great job and I trust them with all my corn and soybean plans for the year.
