There are many factors you consider each season when you are picking which seed to plant on your farm, and we don’t take that lightly.

Most seed companies use simple plot data to choose what genetics to put in their seed lineups. While we do that too, our process of bringing a variety or hybrid to the lineup includes a few more steps for quality assurance. We’re committed to give you the best seed and yield potential possible. Our desire to lead the industry in seed quality, yield potential, and plant health are only a few of the things that add up to more profit per acre when you plant Hefty Brand Seed.

BEST GENETICS

We pick elite genetics from the best the industry has to offer. Our deep relationships with the largest breeders and genetic suppliers in the industry put you in the best position for high yield.

Plus! We bring in new, higher yielding lines quick than the bigger companies that get caught up in the name recognition of popular lines.

SEED QUALITY

While no seed lot is going to be perfect, we often get pretty close. When it comes to our soybean seed production, we have one of the most restrictive seed grower contracts that we know of in the industry. All our seed growers adhere to the highest fertility, seed treatment, herbicide, insecticide, and plant health standards.

For Hefty Brand Corn seed quality decisions, each experimental number is tested in multiple plots across the country. Strengths, weaknesses, and performace metrics are logged, analyzed, and replicated before the hybrid ever comes to you. Coupled with the fact that all Hefty Brand Corn is treated with industry-leading Hefty Complete Corn Seed Treatment, our hybrids result in great seed for the best chance at high yields and more profits on your farm.

AGRONOMIC TRAINING

The training program we use for our agronomists is led by Brian & Darren Hefty an is unmatched by anyone in the industry. If better agronomic recommendations add up to a cost savings you never knew existed, you may save a few dollars per acre. If incredibly good recommendations result in a few more bushels per acre, you’ll add profit by the thousands!

What our growers are saying…

This bean is rock solid year in and out. Really appreciate that Hefty’s delivers the seed right to my wagon when I call for it in the spring.

ADAM • NORTHERN IOWA

I have a Hefty corn plot this year to see how the new hybrids stack up against some of the proven performers on my farm. I had great success with the Liberty beans over the years so I’m anxious to see how the corn yields.

TIM • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

I have every kind of soil type from sand to heavy black dirt on my farm. My Hefty agronomist is always able to put together a seed plan that will maximize the hybrid and soils ability.

MYRON • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

I have a sandy light farm that I planted this drought guard corn too vs. another number. We have had lots of rain but it still looks great and hope for good fall yields.

CLARANCE • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

H5104 planted side by side vs. the competitor looked better to start with, and the ears look impressive. The seed treatment is making a big difference I think.

DENNIS • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

I like the 14R3, it’s a great early bean that I can get started on right away in the fall and get some manure hauled without giving up any yield.

ROSS • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

We planted these 20R3’s for several years and there isn’t a piece of dirt around that these can’t go on and yield successfully.

DOUG • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

We planted the 17L6 last year with great success and are hoping for the same with the 21L6.

TOM • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

Standability was really noticeable. We had the field split with two different hybrids. 4904 was the last field that we harvested and stood very well.

SAM • TRUMAN, MINNESOTA

Emergence was very even on this hybrid, which really helped with overall yield.

GRANT • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

Hefty Beans have not let me down for the last 6 years and the look really good again this year.

H2802 looks good and stood up better than the competitor during a bad wind storm. Cobs are bigger as well.

LEE • LAKOTA, ND

H2801 looks good and seed counts on the cobs look very promising.

MICHAEL • WEBSTER, ND

These beans came up quick and have looked good all year and have handled the stress well.

The early season root growth was amazing on this corn. I can’t see how that won’t translate into yield on my Farm.

JIM • EASTERN IOWA

Hefty beans have been proven performers on the farm.

BRAD • EASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA

Consistent, strong yield.

BRIAN • EASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA

Hefty soybeans have been good yielders on the farm.

This year with all of the wet weather we had to make several chemical and seed switches. Hefty’s made that process very easy and had what we needed to keep rolling.

STEVE • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

We do some conventional and roundup corn along with a couple of different kinds of soybeans. Hefty’s always has a great selection to fit our planting needs.

GREG • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

When we had lots of wet weather this year Hefty’s really helped out by finding earlier varieties for corn and beans to plant.

Hefty’s is always open or willing to make arrangements so that we can keep playing even on the weekends. Whenever we need seed they get it here.

I have planted Hefty beans for many years with good success and now going to try Hefty’s corn to see how it stacks up.

TODD • SOUTHERN MINNESOTA

H009X7 is looking good and should yield well.

I have rough ground and extreme weather conditions in Pennsylvania. Hefty Complete Seed Treatment proved to be a valuable asset to my soybeans and corn purchased from Hefty Seed Company.

MIKE • WATERFORD, PENNSYLVANIA

I was very impressed by the seed treatment and emergence I saw. Emergence is key for high yield corn. Hefty Brand H5812 Corn was a great number and is the best yielding corn I have raised on the farm it was placed.

JIM • APPLE RIVER, ILLINOIS

The agronomists at Hefty are much different than what we are accustomed to on the east coast. They don’t just sell us whatever the weekly special is or what might make them the biggest profit margin. They spend time with us understanding the circumstances we are dealing with in the field and make recommendations for seed, fertilizer, or chemicals based on what will make OUR farm the most money.

KRATZ BROTHERS FARM LLC. • HAMBURG, PENNSYLVANIA

I called my Hefty agronomist and told him to put a sign by this field. It looks fantastic!

I have loved these beans (H18X8) over the last two seasons, why stop now?

JOSH • HARMONY, MINNESOTA

Last year I had Croplan planted next to the Hefty, and this year I have all Hefty. I was really happy with it (H5212), plus it was cheaper.

My Hefty Brand H28X8 soybeans stood well and cut well. They looked beautiful all season long and were my best standing soybeans in a heavy SDS environment.

MIKE • ATKINSON, ILLINOIS

I really like the Hefty Complete Soybean Seed Treatment on my Hefty Brand Soybeans. I have been aphid free the past two years. I sure wouldn’t want to give up Hefty Complete Seed Treatment moving forward.

PETE • OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN

H5003 won its split planted by 20 bu/ac last year on some variable ground. You could really see the Drought Guard help in the sandy areas.

BILL • COMFREY, MINNESOTA

I am very happy with the performance of my Hefty Brand H3201 Corn. It was high yielding (average was 31 long and 20 around), and at harvest was the driest corn. Hefty Brand H3201 Corn stood excellent all season long too. Looking forward to its performance this year!

PETE • OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN

H20X7 really did well in my high IDC areas and was one of my top yielding soybeans on the farm last year.

TIM • SPRINGFIELD, MINNESOTA

Hefty corn has proved to me that their seed treatment is really working. Their corn had the best and most consistent emergence in the both cold and perfect situations this spring.

TERRY • HANSKA, MINNESOTA

Hefty Brand H28X8 Soybeans were our best soybeans across the farm operation. The H28X8 shined on all soil types and I am very happy on how they performed.

TIM • GENESEO, ILLINOIS

The Hefty Brand H37X8S Soybeans were a perfect fit for us. From April through November harvest they held high expectations. This soybean excelled in our high yield environments and continuously beat the averages in the area. Hefty Brand Soybeans are the foundation of our acres.

BRUCE • FORREST, ILLINOIS

There is no soybean out there that can beat Hefty Brand. From the phenomenal seed quality and uniform seed size and shape to Hefty Complete Soybean Seed Treatment. I can this because I grew 116.3 bushels per acres with Hefty Brand H25X8 soybeans in 2018 with soybeans on soybeans.
