Hefty Corn 4612 has been one of the best corn varieties on my farm.

Larry, Central South Dakota

I love how Hefty 4612 stands into the year in wet ground.

Terry, Eastern South Dakota

Hefty 4612 stands excellent late into the fall, especially in 2019. It’s the best corn I’ve had.

Matt, East Central South Dakota

Hefty Corn 4612 stands well, was the fastest out of the ground, and harvested well in 2019, which stands for something.

Jack, Eastern Central South Dakota

Hefty Corn 4612 had very good emergence.

Steve, Brown County, South Dakota

Hefty 4612 corn had awesome flex!
