Horticultural Inspection Society
Southern Chapter (HIS-SC)


The Horticultural Inspection Society (H.I.S.) is an organization of inspectors, laboratory and field personnel who regulate plant movement to prevent the spread of plant pests and disease. These individuals enforce laws and regulations for their state agencies which deal with pest prevention. These agencies are usually found within the state's Department of Agriculture or University. Thirteen states and one territory belong to the Southern Chapter.
