About ISHS

The world's leading independent organization of horticultural scientists

ISHS Logo

The International Society for Horticultural Science - in short ISHS – is a truly global network comprising over 60,000 individuals, universities, governments, institutions, libraries and commercial companies, thousands of whom joined as Individual Members, in addition to a substantial number of Institutional Members and some 50 Member Countries/Regions. It is a major source of up-to-date information on global horticultural research. ISHS aims to promote research in all branches of horticulture. It encourages the development of international co-operation, bringing together scientific and technical professionals to stimulate, facilitate and co-ordinate research and scientific activities on a global scale.

Joining ISHS

If you have not joined, now is your opportunity! More details on ISHS membership, including an online application form at www.ishs.org/members

ISHS Young Minds Award

During each ISHS Symposium two Young Mind Awards for junior scientists will be given:

one award for the best oral presentation given by a junior scientist who is in the same time the presenter and first author of the submitted manuscript
one award for the best poster presented by a junior scientist who is first author of the work

Venue

The event will be hosted entirely online. Below we will post the details on how to access the event.
Check back later for more details.

Wenatchee, WA

The organizing committee will host the event online, operating from Wenatchee, located at the confluence of the Columbia and Wenatchee rivers, near the eastern foothills of the Cascade Range.
The city, also known as the "Apple Capital of the World", lies at the center of the vibrant Washington State tree fruit production area. The State's apple production is certainly one of excellence in the world, and one of the largest worldwide, due to very favorable climatic and cultural conditions. In addition the low level of humidity minimizes the need of pesticides treatments and this represents an undeniable advantage for plant protection and product healthiness.
