Grower Reviews

Listen to what industry professionals have to say about our product.
Patrick Bellrose

Patrick Bellrose, PresidentFahr Greenhouses, Wildwood, MO

"We tried composted rice hulls several years back, but with poor results. Then I heard Dr. Evans from the University of Arkansas speak and decided to try the PBH product. I received a sample in 2005 and by May 2006 we were 100% PBH instead of perlite. Many things attracted me to it. Cost was one, but beyond that was root development and the total lack of Pythium — even in our Vinca crop.

We also like PBH because it is a natural product and we can promote its sustainability. Another real advantage is the lack of dust when mixing."

"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.”
