The IPPS-Western Region unites individuals involved in commercial plant propagation, teaching, research, extension, and allied fields related to plant production. Members gather, present and/or distribute information for the advancement of the art and science of plant propagation. We LIVE the motto "To Seek and To Share".


Through its programs, IPPS-Western Region encourages the education and participation of students, the blending of academic and commercial interests, the professional development of both new and experienced growers, and the active networking of members.


We value diversity in the background and experience of our members.


We encourage you to join us and become an active member of the IPPS-Western Region.




Plan to join us for the next IPPS-Western Region Annual Conference: September 24 to 29, 2019 in beautiful Northern California at the Hilton Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley.  CLICK HERE for more information.
