International agricultural firm, H.J. Baker, is hosting a delegation from Beijing Xinhefeng Agrochemicals Co., Ltd. (XHF), a leading distributor of agrochemicals, fertilizers and micro nutrients, in China.  They are visiting Idaho during the potato harvest to witness specific fertilizer use to maximize crop yield and health.

Representatives from H.J. Baker, including agronomist Wesley Haun, and the U.S. Potato Growers Association will discuss the technical aspects of potato farming in the United States. The delegation visiting includes innovative and successful potato farmers in China.

Steve Langely, director of international sales at H.J. Baker, said: “XHF is one of our top distributors. They are focused on Northern China potato farmers and use our products to significantly lower soil pH levels. Their visit is an excellent opportunity to see how farmers who have used our Tiger-Sul products have increased crop yields. We are also able to share best practices in potato farming which benefits everyone. As we continue to expand our presence in China, it is vital that we develop strategic partnerships with companies such as XHF.”

Tiger-Sul products are shipped in Asia from an H.J. Baker & Bro., Inc. production plant in Lianyungang, China.
