Welcome to IPPS Southern Africa

We welcome all plant production professionals and those involved in horticultural research and education in Southern Africa, to join our professional network and participate in sharing plant production knowledge.

Every year we host an educational conference during the first week of March. This event is a forum where horticultural professionals share information and keep up to date with the latest developments in plant production practices.


Our region has a successful student exchange partnership with IPPS Australia. Each year a young horticulturist of Southern Africa has the opportunity to visit Australia during May. Visit the Australia / South Africa Student Exchange page for more information.

We organize various nursery visits and half-day workshops with the aim to give members the opportunity to improve their skills, knowledge and professionalism. Interested in joining IPPS? Please visit the Become a member page for more information.
