Key Strengths
· Big yielder with really strong early vigor! Unique genetics with broad acre placement. Great roots and greensnap protection!
Weaknesses
· Racehorse hybrid with average disease protection.
Positioning
· Place this on good ground, fertilize well, and manage intensively to push for top yields! Broadacre placement mainly due to disease protection (especially Goss’s). Responds very well to V5-V7 fungicide in addition to VT-R1 fungicide with more yield and improved staygreen.

Agronomic & Disease Ratings
H5812 Agronomic Chart

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

Hefty Brand 5812 has been a top yielder on our farm for two years running. It’s quick out of the ground and the standability is great!

Andrew, South Dakota

H5812 was a high yielder on my farm, so I had to try more varieties of Hefty Corn this year.

Mike, Brown County, Minnesota

I was very impressed by the seed treatment and emergence I saw. Emergence is key for high yielding corn. Hefty Brand H5812 Corn was a great number and is the best yielding corn I have raised on the farm it was placed.

Jim, Illinois

Hefty 5812 is one of the best corn hybrids I’ve planted so far.
