The Premium Top Soil is a mixture of 90 percent composted bark, 10 percent wood fiber, and fertilizers. Both products are filled into plastic bags or imported in bulk.

The applicable subheading for the Professional Potting Mix and Premium Top Soil will be 1404.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for vegetable products not elsewhere specified or included¬other. The rate of duty will be free.
