U.S. Borax, Inc., announced today that they will be featured in an upcoming episode of American Farmer, airing later this year on RFD-TV.

Borax operates California's largest open pit mine in Boron, California - one of the richest borate deposits on the planet. While boron is present everywhere in the environment, substantial deposits of borates are relatively rare.

In this episode, American Farmer travels to Boron, California for a behind-the-scenes look at how Borax operates. Viewers will be educated on how Boron is vital to fertilization, fruit, and seed production; and how the company is able to supply about 30 percent of the world's demand for refined borates.

“Our 20 Mule Team Borax products of Granubor 2, Solubor and Fertibor are recognized worldwide for their performance, quality, technical support, research data, and supply reliability,” said Paul Fink, Regional Sales Manager, U.S. Borax. “Our participation in the American Farmer series compliments U.S. Borax’s commercial commitment to the Agricultural industry.”

“Borax is committed to ensuring that practices and products are socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable,” said Charlie Cowan, Producer for American Farmer. “As the recognized world leader in borate technology, research and development, American Farmer looks forward to educating the public on Borax.”
