State 3 disadvantages of self-pollination

The 3 disadvantages of self-pollination are as follows:

  • May lead to the weakening of variety or the species due to continued self-pollination, thereby affecting the quality of offspring
  • Defective or weaker characters of the variety or breed cannot be eliminated
  • Self-pollination does not yield new varieties, hence fewer chances of improvement in the subsequent generation
