On the Arizona Business Report AZPM's Zac Ziegler talks with Fresh Produce Association of the Americas President Lance Jungmeyer.

Each year, $2.5 billion worth of Mexican-grown fruits and vegetables cross into the U.S. through Nogales. The port's market share has been shrinking in recent years, losing out to crossings in Texas.
