Tomatoes

 

Well known for our UG Crop Shield that helps to protect against sunburn during the hot summer months, Ultra Gro has a large footprint on the Westside for cannery growers. We have completed multiple grower demonstration trials that have been successful for increasing yields. As a result of those trials, Ultra Gro has caught the attention of several growers and has expanded acreage of full-program tomato customers.
