Diamond R. Fertilizer was founded by the Roper family. The brand was used on their fruit boxes distinguishing themselves from other owners at the packinghouse. The family sold the fertilizer and agrichemical businesses to a group of growers/investors from Ft. Pierce. The company grew over the years becoming the largest full service agrichemical dealer in Florida. Assets include four bulk-blending plants, agrichemical storage facilities, a seed harvesting and processing division, and an analytical laboratory.
