The Western Region of the International Plant Propagators' Society will meet September 19-22, at the Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor in California.

The Western Region of the International Plant Propagators’ Society (IPPS) will meet September 19-22, at the Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor in California. The event includes a carefully planned mix of educational sessions, nursery tours, networking and more.

“As one of the country’s richest horticultural regions, Ventura County was a natural choice for our 2012 meeting location,” said Jim Conner, IPPS Western Region Program Co-Chairman. “In addition to inside looks at some of the area’s most innovative producers, we’ve prepared a speaker slate built on information exchange and offering topics in all aspects of propagation from seed and cuttings to tissue culture.”

Sessions include propagation techniques, new plant development, new transplanting and planting strategies, organic production, quality control, insects and diseases, determining plants’ market value, and more.

The event will also include a pre-conference tour to La Verne Nursery, Norman’s Nursery, Valley Crest Tree Company, Do Right’s Plant Growers, and Limoneira Packing Plant.

Afternoon tours during the conference will highlight operations including Lotusland, Gallup & Stribling, San Marcos Growers, Por La Mar Nursery and PanAmerican Seed.
