HEFTY YIELDS & QUALITY SEED START WITH SUPERIOR PRODUCTION.
Outstanding genetics earn higher yields. There’s no secret about that, and we can guarantee you Hefty Brand Soybeans include the great genetics you’re looking for. But, if many seed companies have similar genetics, why should you buy Hefty Beans versus anyone else’s? SEED QUALITY is our answer. Here’s how we can say that.
HEFTY BRAND SEED GROWER CONTRACTS.
Because we strive to give you the very best seed quality available on the market, we have the most restrictive seed grower contract that we know of in the industry. We require our seed growers to take better care of our production seed, so we believe you end up with a more nutrient-dense and vigorous seed. Here are just a few of those steps.
Our seed growers soil test and fertilize soybeans for high yields and quality. Did you know that 60 bushel soybeans remove approximately 131 pounds of K2O (potassium) and 58 pounds of phosphate from the soil? By fertilizing with lots of P, K, and micronutrients, the seed we produce typically has more test weight, greater sizes, and better vigor.
All our seed growers treat their soybeans with Hefty Complete Soybean Seed Treatment. Consisting of more than 30 components, including fungicides, insecticide, inoculant, and biologicals, Hefty Complete protects our seed production fields with the most comprehensive soybean seed treatment in the industry. Healthier plants throughout the year make healthier, more vigorous seed for you.
SOIL APPLIED RESIDUAL HERBICIDE
Yes, we know our growers can control weeds with post-emerge applications, but we believe in having season-long, weed-free fields. It usually means better yields and more seed for us, and bigger, more productive seed for you.
AGGRESSIVELY FIGHT INSECTS
We require insecticide applications at very low threshold levels when bean leaf beetles and soybean aphids are present. These insects carry disease, and if they are left to feed on the soybeans, you may end up with seed that has a disease in the bag. We do everything we can to prevent that.
Fungicide use at the R2 to R3 stage (full flower to first pod) is beneficial for stopping diseases and improving yields. Because our growers are REQUIRED to spray, you’ll find our seed fields less likely to contain white mold, cercospora, frog eye leaf spot, septoria brown spot, and more. Fungicide use makes seed quality better.
HEFTY BRAND SOYBEAN CLEANING PROCESS.
SEED QUALITY – Our sorting process individually scans each soybean seed and uses tiny shots of air to kick out any beans that are off-color or misshapen.
SEED PURITY – The electronic eyes are sensitive enough to pick dark hilum seeds out of a clear hilum seed lot.
SEED GERMINATION – The sorter is excellent at removing splits (including seed that has a comprised seed coat and is about to split) and green beans that have made it past the primary seed cleaning equipment.
SEED CONSISTENCY – The newest software and equipment available can sort seed not only by color and shape but also by size. This allows the machines to better pick out splits, shriveled seed, and volunteer corn.
SEED PLANTABILITY – Plantability issues are common across the seed industry in part because of the wide variance in seed size. Since our process also sorts seed by size, our seed is more uniform, improving plantability and yield.
Our seed cleaning and sorting process removes cracked, discolored, and misshapen beans to improve germination and yield at harvest.
HIGH YIELDING BEANS.
Our cleaning and sorting process scans every individual seed and only the best make it through to get planted in your fields.
Enlist E3™soybeans are tolerant to 2, 4-D; glyphosate; and Liberty®. Meaning, you will have two great post-emerge options for your Roundup-resistant weeds: Liberty® and Enlist One™. Plus, Enlist™ herbicides have almost no volatility.
The seed supply is fantastic! After anticipating bringing Enlist forward four years ago, we’ve had four extra years to work on getting this trait into the best genetics. Now, we have many high-yielding varieties from early to late in maturity with 28 different lines.
Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® is built on the trusted chemistry behind Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans. These Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans use the biotech-stacked trait with tolerance to both dicamba and glyphosate herbicides. The technology in the Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans means better control of glyphosate-resistant broadleaf weeds such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, and marestail.
LibertyLink® soybeans allow you to use the same tried and true high-yielding genetics with the Liberty® contact herbicide. This gives you more control over tough broadleaf weeds and grasses. With LibertyLink® soybeans you can have good spray coverage and take care of glyphosate resistant weeds like marestail, waterhemp, giant ragweed and Palmer amaranth.
Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans are resistant to glyphosate products. In other words, you can spray Roundup® herbicides in-crop on these varieties while maintaining quality genetics for strong yields.
