KEY STRENGTHS
Significant yield improvement! Powerful SmartStax® hybrid with top-end yields and strong agronomics. Ear flex for length and girth. Fits on most soil types. Maintains stalk and plant health into fall for a great finish!

WEAKNESSES
Average disease tolerance. Benefits from foliar fungicide, especially in continuous corn.

POSITIONING
This is a really good top-end yielder with a national fit on most soils. With excellent flex ear characteristics, you’ll express maximum performance by utilizing banded fertility including micronutrients at or before planting. To enhance root growth and nutrient uptake, we recommend using Alpha Complete in-furrow or adding Nurtri-Shield (talc + naturals) in the seed box. With average to slightly better disease tolerance levels, this hybrid benefits from foliar fungicide use.

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

Luke, Iowa

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.

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 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.

Devon, Southeast Nebraska

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