5.18 Commercial Plant Growing

Understand how microprogation can be used to produce commercial quantities of identical plants (clones) with desirable characteristics.

If a plants has commercially desirable characteristics, people would want to make many copies of it, however, the two ways of doing this:

  • Sexual reproduction will lead to variation and a loss of qualities. 
  • Therefore, we want to use cloning technique (micropropagation) so that we get many plants of the same quality and commercially that keeps the product the same so it can be sold.
