Key hybrid with broad national placement! Excellent top-end yield potential with best in class test weight. Very good stalks and roots. Improved tolerance to anthracnose stalk rot.


Tall, sturdy plants have some level of greensnap risk. Susceptible to physoderma.


This hybrid has some flex to the ear and does respond well to intensive fertility and crop protection management. Will need a fungicide application or two to keep gray leaf spot away. Has a great plant structure that holds up well through the season. Prefers to stay on the good to great soils for full yield expression. Close relative to H6214 with slightly better drydown.


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!

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.

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