Aims and scope

International Journal of Horticulture and Floriculture features high profile articles in all branches of horticulture and other cognate sciences of sufficient relevance and primary interest to the horticulturists.


  • The journal aims to publish original and review research contributions into the production, improvement and utilization of horticultural crops.
  • To provide scientific knowledge of interest to those engaged in scientific research and the practice of horticulture. 
  • To cultivate and promote research, education and development of horticulture and allied branches of science
  • To serve as a platform for interaction among the different sectors of the horticulture industry, build synergies, and ultimately, unleash the underexploited potential of horticulture in third world countries.
  • The journal is designed to cater to the diverse needs of the science, industry/business and capacity building sectors of the horticulture industry.


The scope of the journal includes studies on fruit and other perennial crops, vegetables and ornamentals grown in temperate or tropical regions and their use in commercial, amenity or urban horticulture. Papers, including reviews, that give new insights into plant and crop growth, yield, quality and response to the environment, are welcome, including those arising from technological innovation and developments in crop genome sequencing and other biotechnological advances.
