"By topdressing with PBH at potting, we save time, reduce hand weeding and use less herbicide. Those are three big benefits for a nursery with thousands of containers in production. Topdressing with PBH has been a game-changer for our weed control program."

“We topdress containers with PBH at potting to ensure season-long weed control and significantly reduce hand weeding. With increasing labor costs and unpredictable weather patterns, we were looking for just such a tool to supplement our herbicide program. We also use PBH in our mix to maintain porosity. It works two ways for us.”
