Offensive powerhouse! Has shown excellent SDS tolerance. Broad acre placement with good standability and consistent performance.


Average SWM tolerance.


Plant this bean first and utilize the best seed treatment technologies. This is a fantastic yielder and it responds favorably to intensive management.

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 28X8 was a great yielder. One of the top performers on my farm. It handled stress really well and it was loaded with pods. I planted it again this year and am looking forward to seeing its performance again.

Daniel, Northeast Nebraska

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

Gerald, Eastern South Dakota

Hefty 28X8 can yield! It was definitely one of the top soybean yields on my farm for 2019.
