Explain four advantages of vegetative propagation

Explain four advantages of vegetative propagation.

  1. New plants produced by vegetative propagation maintain the desirable characters of the parents. These plants are genetically identical.
  2. Certain plants like banana, grapes, pineapple, roses, jasmine, etc., do not form seeds. Thus, this is the only method of reproduction and continuation of such species.
  3. This method is cheap and can be easily employed to reproduce plants, especially fruit plants.
  4. Only one parent is required for reproduction.
