Versatile line that fits almost everywhere! Standability, white mold tolerance, excellent emergence, and above-average IDC tolerance. This is a lead line for Hefty Brand.


There has to be one, but we haven’t found it yet. Can it beat 16X8 in the west?


Great-yielding bean, especially for acres north of HWY 200. Works well west to east across North Dakota, Minnesota, and beyond. Manage for big yields.

H17X9 is a high yielding soybean on my farm that stays narrow late enough in the season for me to get late applications on to really push its yield.

Terry, Southwest Minnesota

I like how the H17X9 is a nice narrow, tall bean with high yield potential.

Wallace, Southwest Minnesota

H17X9 is a powerful bean with amazing emergence that seems to fit on any ground.

John, Minnesota

Hefty Brand Soybeans runs deeper than the seed. It’s a great company and I know I can trust their recommendations for my farm.

Matthew, North East South Dakota

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
