Peppers

 

Ultra Gro has a long history with peppers.  Ranging from Kern County to the Coastal growing regions we have a proven track record of success. In 2009, Scroggs Consulting conducted a third-party pepper trial which showed increased quality and better shipability. In addition to our fertility programs, pepper growers have come to rely on the UG Crop Shield product to help protect against sunburn.
