Advice from our specialist

PRO-MIX® BRK20 contains a combination of Canadian sphagnum peat moss, specially processed pine bark and perlite to form a growing medium that provides good bulk density, high drainage, low water retention and good air porosity. Many growers prefer this PRO-MIX® formulation for garden mums, perennials and small container nursery plants grown outdoors where rainy weather can be a factor. The processed bark is nitrogen-stabilized so that there is a minimal drawdown of nitrogen. This means growers do not have to increase nitrogen rates.

Ingredients

  • SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (75-85%) ?

    Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is a natural, organic matter that comes from a peat bog. This primary resource is carefully harvested by vacuum harvesters. Peat moss comes in various fibrosity and levels of decomposition. Once carefully graded, peat moss assures that qualities of each grade are optimized for based on grower and uses for a final product reaching high quality requirements.

  • PROCESSED PINE BARK ?

    Processed pine bark consists of partially composted aged pine bark derived from predominantly red pine species. The pine bark is screened, graded and aged turned to partially compost to improve and stabilize the carbon:nitrogen ratio.

  • PERLITE ?

    Perlite is an alumino-silicate ore of volcanic origin. The raw ore is crushed, graded and screened in various particle sizes. Perlite has a high total-porosity and improves drainage and air porosity.

  • LIMESTONE ?

    Used to adjust pH to optimum range. Also a source of Calcium and Magnesium.

  • WETTING AGENT ?

    A wetting agent is a substance that reduces the surface tension of water, allowing water to penetrate and uniformly wet growing media.

  • BIOFUNGICIDE ?

    Biofungicide is a naturally occurring strain of bacteria called Bacillus subtilis (MBI 600). This bacterium enhances plant growth and combats harmful organisms such as Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia.
