KEY STRENGTHS

Big-time yielder with great stalks and roots! Solid defensive package, as well, with consistent performance and roadside appeal all season. Very good Goss’s wilt tolerance.

WEAKNESSES

Only average on gray leaf spot.

POSITIONING

This is the conventional version of H5003, which is one of our top-selling hybrids. It has been very dependable and holds up well to stress. It also responds very favorably to in-furrow applications of insecticide and microbial products like Micro-Cycle. It has a decent amount of ear flex to it and works in a variety of populations and soil types.

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!

I put my Hefty corn up to my favorite Pioneer and Dekalb, and wow does it perform! I’ll keep planting Hefty!

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.

Out of everything I planted, Hefty has always been the first corn out of the ground over the last three years.
