Melons

 

The UG product line suits Valley melon growers well. We help in the root zone with our Soil Treatment and Calcium, build a canopy, enhance the bloom and build brix with our foliars, and protect against sunburn with the Ultra Gro Crop Shield. We offer a truly diverse tool chest for today’s melon growers.
