KEY STRENGTHS

Deep kernels lead to big yields with this hybrid! Excellent Goss’s tolerance and northern corn leaf blight tolerance. Solid roots and stalks confer good plant health all season long.

WEAKNESSES

Average test weight and drydown.

POSITIONING

Utilize a full labeled rate of a Group 15 pre-emerge grass herbicide. Push fertility levels as this hybrid responds well to added nutrition. Tolerance to 1st generation corn borer has been above average. Average and above soils are preferred, but it’s shown a good ability to flex in the lower-yielding environments, as well. Planting time insecticide is recommended in areas of the country with moderate levels of rootworm or other soil insect pressure.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

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.

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

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