KEY STRENGTHS
DroughtGard® hybrid with a great fit on your toughest acres! Flex ear product with strong early vigor and big roots! Strong plant intactness and stay green in the fall. Very good disease tolerance package.

WEAKNESSES
Lower planting populations help improve stalk diameter.

POSITIONING
Tough-guy hybrid with strong enough yield data to compete with most anything. Its biggest advantage is on your variable acre where its flex ear can add kernels and kernel depth to take advantage of fertility and water. This is not recommended for continuous corn but fits almost everywhere else. Use lower planting populations to avoid thinner stalks and potential lodging.

The higher the number, the better the performance or rating.

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

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 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

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

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

Mark, Southeast South Dakota

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.
