KEY STRENGTHS

Top notch yield, plant health, and test weight! National placement line with good southern and northern movement. Plant this one first and feed it to win.

WEAKNESSES

Average score on Goss’s wilt.

POSITIONING

The one real watchout with H6222 is Goss’s. It may not be good enough for areas with moderate to heavy pressure. However, this hybrid has incredible top-end yield potential and will be planted on a lot of acres across a big area of this country and is a favorite background for many yield contest winners. Planting time insecticide is recommended. Responds well to increased fertility and foliar fungicides.

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!

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

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.
