Racehorse yielder with excellent western movement. Stands like a champ and handles some of the key stresses for beans in this geography.


Much of the disease package has a moderate tolerance rather than full resistance.


Fits from Wisconsin through Minnesota, North Dakota, and eastern Montana. Think of it as a racehorse, but don’t discount the level of defense this has to handle stress. Stands very well and fills the rows better than most.

I have always had my soybeans treated with Hefty Complete. The benefits are easy to grasp and help me to push for higher yields every year!

Curt, Southern Minnesota

Hefty Brand Seed has done well for me for years, especially the soybean seed.

Gerald, Eastern South Dakota

Hefty Brand Soybeans have been our go-to beans for several years. The agronomic package has been excellent and our yields continue to go up.

Ken, North Dakota

Across the farm Hefty Brand Soybeans are the best investment we’ve made with good agronomics at the right price.

Warner, North Dakota
