WEAKNESSES
Weak on Goss’s Wilt. Do not spray dicamba late. Keep planting populations high to

What our growers are saying about H2801…

First time planting Hefty Corn! H2801 looks like it has some great roots on it!

MERTZ J • NORTH DAKOTA

Ever since I started planted Hefty Brand Corn, I was so impressed with it’s fast start. I’ve also been able to save money on volunteer corn chemical in my soybeans because the Hefty corn stands so well and holds onto its cobs.

BARRY • NORTHWEST IOWA

I split my planter with Pioneer and Hefty, and at harvest the Hefty Brand Corn was standing tall and strong and the Pioneer was breaking apart and falling down. I was very impressed with the Hefty Corn.

MILO • NORTHWEST MINNESOTA

We tried some Hefty H2801 this year. I was extremely pleased with the emergence and vigor. It stood well all summer and the yield was excellent.

ROBERT • PEMBINA CO. NORTH DAKOTA

The emergence and early season vigor of my H2801 was heads and tails above the rest of the other corn that I planted.
