This footage captures scenes of a farm near the Texas-Mexico border in the town of Matamoros, Mexico. Included are scenes of the agricultural industry, focusing on the farmers operating row tractors and scenes of various crop duster airplanes taking off, landing, and dusting crops. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
