GRIJALVA, Aidé. Agro-industry and cotton in the Mexicali valley: The Compañía Industrial Jabonera del Pacífico. Estud. front [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.30, pp.11-42. ISSN 2395-9134.

The Mexicali Valley emerged in the early twentieth century as part of the expansion of the agricultural frontier in the southwestern United States. You can not explain this without the participation of American capitalists who took over the land and water of Mexicali Valley and laid the foundations of an agribusiness development around the cultivation of cotton. A company, a subsidiary of Anderson, Clayton & Company, played an important role in this process, making turning the Mexicali Valley in one of the largest producers of cotton in Mexico.

Keywords : cotton; land; water; agribussines.
