Vegetative propagation is an asexual method of plant reproduction that occurs in its leaves, roots and stem. This can occur through fragmentation and regeneration of specific vegetative parts of plants.
- Vegetative reproduction has several benefits, primarily because the developed offspring represent copies of their parent plants. If a plant has positive features, the genetic information can be passed on to its offspring.
- Commercial growers may profit by cloning such plants in order to ensure their crops remain compatible financially.
- It increases the chances of a plant reaching maturity effectively in nature and saves growers a great deal of time and money on a commercial basis as it permits a quicker overturn.
- Vegetative reproduction offers scientific opportunities in several biological fields and is realistic in the context of afforestation.
