Key Strengths
· Key hybrid at this maturity with yield, a durable plant type, flex ear, and fast drydown. National placement line with a strong disease package.
Weaknesses
· Has enough flex that it may not benefit from plant populations over 36,000.
Positioning
· Broad acre placement hybrid that fits on continuous corn acres or in a crop rotation. SmartStax® version of H4842. Flex ear responds to planting time fertility application as well as a timely split application in season around V5-V6. Loves in-furrow microbial products like Alpha Complete!

Brett, Lakeville, Minnesota

Our farm has used Hefty hybrids for at least 4 seasons and we continue to use them. We are 75% corn most years and these varieties have handled our challenging growing conditions on high pH, poorly drained soils as well as anything we have found.  The service from Jack in Watertown has been very good anytime we wanted to switch hybrids or had any issues with a specific hybrid.
