What is the major advantage of producing plants by micropropagation?

Answer :

Micropropagation is the method of producing a large number of plants through tissue culture. Each of these plants will be genetically identical to the original plant from which they were grown. Such plants are known as somaclones. Thus, this method helps in producing clones of a plant in large number within a short span of time. Such clones are virus-free also. Many food plants like tomato, banana, apple, etc., are produced on a large scale using this method.
