Key Strengths
· National line with yield and agronomics! New SmartStax® PRO hybrid with strong roots and stalks. Quick out of the ground.
Weaknesses
· Good but not great defense. Foliar fungicide will be needed in continuous corn.
Positioning
· Broad placement product that moves east-west and north-south very well. Prefers to be on the average to better ground with good fertility. SmartStax® Pro is a step up on rootworm control, and this will fit well on continuous corn acres. Foliar fungicide use will be beneficial in moderate-to-higher disease pressure areas.

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

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 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.

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

Luke, Iowa

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

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.

Mike, Othellow, Washington

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