This site is designed to provide the visitor with information on:
WHAT The Shafter Research Station is
WHO is doing research here
HOW to secure space for your research project or program
In times past, one of the best ways to provide growers and other stakeholders with information results of agricultural research was to invite them to travel to the actual location where the research was conducted. It took considerable time and effort, in many instances, to travel the distances necessary.
Today, through the use of electronic media, we can bring the research results directly to you anywhere and anytime. Our website offers a measure of transparency to the activities of our public-private research platform and encourages your participation in making it even more effective at keeping the information flowing.
Imagination is the highest form of research.
I believe in Innovation and that the way you get innovation is
