KEY STRENGTHS

Short in stature, but BIG in yield! Don’t let the shorter plant type fool you – this is a yielding machine with broad acre placement. Good on Goss’s and late-season plant health. Holds up better than most on tar spot, too.

WEAKNESSES

Has a longer husk cover that can be mitigated by planting lower populations. Average on gray leaf spot, and you guessed it – this is not a silage hybrid.

POSITIONING

Plant a lower-than-normal population and watch this hybrid run! National placement line that bushels up in the fall with very good drydown. Responds very well to early-season fertility and late-season fungicide. A great candidate for Alpha Complete in-furrow or very early post.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

H5554 Agronomic Chart

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

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 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

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

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!

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.
