Come Sept. 22, the Kern County town of Shafter will be celebrating its roots in the cotton business. A state historical marker will be dedicated that morning at the 100-acre site where scientists first determined 75 years ago that the San Joaquin Valley could yield a premium cotton crop. The facility, now known as the University of California Shafter Research and Extension Center, was established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1922 to develop a cotton industry.
