Boron’s Essential Role During COVID-19
As shelter-in-place became more widespread, the U.S. federal government announced that agriculture, and those involved in production agriculture, would maintain operations as a critical industry. From coast to coast and around the world, boron helps farmers boost crop yield and quality.

U.S. Borax, part of Rio Tinto, is a global leader in the supply and science of borates—naturally-occurring minerals containing boron and other elements. We are 1,000 people serving 650 customers with more than 1,800 delivery locations globally. We supply around 30% of the world’s need for refined borates from our world-class mine in Boron, California, about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles. Learn more about Rio Tinto.
