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.

Great Aeration!

I'll never use perlite again after switching to these rice hulls. Biodegradable, and a source of silica. No more concrete perlite blocks for me!

Great for seedlings

Used to lighten up our seedling mix and like it better than perlite so far.

Great ground cover and aeration component

I love this stuff!i use it mostly for a top mulch type layer for the cover crop to grow through. It’s a clean look and adds silica to soil after it breaks down in time.

Better mulch than hay

I use as a mulch layer as well as mixed in with the soil for more drainage-

I used to used hay in the past, and would always experience mites and gnats. I find making the switch, I no longer experience this problem as bad-
