KEY STRENGTHS

Powerful yielder with very girthy ears! Not uncommon to see 22 kernels around with this hybrid in good soils, but it fits most anywhere east of HWY 281. Good tolerance to Goss’s and northern corn leaf blight.

WEAKNESSES

Average gray leaf spot tolerance.

POSITIONING

This hybrid is very responsive to management. Loves fertility. Planting time insecticide is recommended. Utilize a full labeled rate of a Group 15 pre-emerge grass herbicide to eliminate competition from grassy weeds. It’s a fun hybrid to grow and very easy to place across many acres on your farm.

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!

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.
