Well known for our "UG Crop Shield" which helps to protect against sunburn during the hot summer months, Ultra Gro has a large footprint on the Westside for cannery growers. Recently, we have completed two years of grower demonstration trials that have been successful for increasing yields (see: UG Trial data). As a result of those trials, Ultra Gro has caught the attention of several growers and has expanded acreage of "full-program" customers for the upcoming 2011 growing season.
