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! Broad acre 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

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

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

Mike, Brown County, Minnesota

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

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

Rob, Southeast South Dakota

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.
