Bell Pepper Program

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 3rd Party Pepper trial which showed increased "quality" and better "shipability" (See Grower Trials & Testimonials). In addition to our fertility programs, Pepper growers have come to rely on the UG Crop Shield product to help protect against sunburn.
