PBH Rice Hulls
PBH Nature's Media Amendment is a natural co-product of rice offering nursery and greenhouse growers many advantages. A product of Riceland Foods, Inc., PBH rice hulls are uniquely processed and parboiled to verify purity and cleanliness.
In the nursery, PBH is used as a container topdress to help prevent weed seed germination and growth. A layer of 1 to 2 inches of PBH rice hulls prevents air-borne weed seeds from reaching the growing mix and germinating. This not only manages weeds, including liverwort, but can also reduce herbicide use, reduce phytotoxicity in herbicide-sensitive plants, dramatically decrease hand weeding and reduce watering and drought stress. All for just pennies per container.
In the greenhouse, PBH rice hulls are used as a perlite replacement to create optimum porosity and drainage. PBH rice hulls are dramatically less dusty, provide a more natural color and available at a lower basic cost than perlite. Available in 30-cubic-foot bales or 50-pound bags.
