Desert King Mexico

Desert King Mexico follows all the rules and regulations set forth by the Mexican Forestry Department, to insure that the Yucca extraction rate is not more than the plant’s natural recovery rate.
All Yucca specimens must meet strict maturity standards, this includes being free of green leaves on more than 80% of the plant’s height. DKI strives to stay abreast of all legal issues pertaining to Yucca schidigera harvesting and follows strict forest management plans working hand in hand with communal land owners..

Yucca extracts are our specialty, and we contribute to the growth and satisfaction of our clients each time we implement an improvement, something we continually strive to do.
