Key Strengths
· Yield, full flex, and great Goss’s wilt tolerance! You’ll love this hybrid as it jumps out of the ground and maintains vibrant plant health throughout the season. Excellent drydown and a strong silage choice, as well. Handled tar spot better than other hybrids.
· Average rating on gray leaf spot.
· Broad acre placement of this flex ear hybrid. Fits on nearly all soil types and can handle lower planting populations. While it has a very strong disease protection package, foliar fungicide for gray leaf spot protection is recommended.

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!

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 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

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

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