Rodriguez said, “Mexico has a significant agriculture industry, one that already benefits from H.J. Baker’s products. I anticipate increased demand for our feed, fertilizer and sulphur products as we increase our efforts in Latin America. Latin America has a long agricultural history and H.J. Baker’s more than 160 years of experience make this a win/win for all involved.”
