Key Strengths
· Flex hybrid with outstanding grain and silage performance! Carries the Trecepta® trait for added insect protection. Large ear with deep kernels can handle low to high populations. Very good roots and stalks. Tolerant to Goss’s wilt.
Weaknesses
· Use from Highway 281 and east to keep off extreme drought stress ground. Only average on gray leaf spot and northern corn leaf blight.
Positioning
· Use this hybrid on the good soils in medium to high yield environments. We have other products that are better fits for the stress ground. This is a fantastic silage option with very good quantity and quality! Benefits from a foliar fungicide, especially for GLS and NCLB. Capable of 10 bushels per 1000 seeds (it really flexes!), and it can work with high populations, too!

Paul, Southeast South Dakota

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.

Nathan, Watertown, South Dakota

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!

Luke, Iowa

The emergence and yields I have gotten from my Hefty Brand Seed have been outstanding!

Mark, Southeast South Dakota

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

Devon, Southeast Nebraska

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.
