Title

Par Boiled Rice Hulls by the bale or truckload. 

Studies have proven that rice hulls can efficiently replace perlite in your potting soil mixes and is much better for the environment.

We have independently heavy metal tested the contents and will only work with PBH for our rice hulls because of how clean they have tested. Beware of cheap rice hulls potentially full of heavy metals. 

50lb Bag = About 7 Cubic Feet Once Expanded

Rice Hulls weigh about 1 lb per gallon.

The 20lb Bags weight may vary between 20-26lbs.

We recommend using around 30% aeration. If going for long term no-till we suggest using half Rice Hulls and Half Pumice or Lava Rock.

Worked well for containers and raised bed mixes

I used this for making my own soil mixes for vegetable gardening in containers and raised beds. I was looking for a more environmentally friendly alternative to perlite .I combined it with ordinary topsoil, compost, worm castings, and alfalfa meal. I also used this as a light mulch over seedlings to retain some moisture in the top layer of the soil. While I do not have a control group to compare to, I had good yields on a variety of crops such as carrots, herbs, greens, and tomatoes.
