Micropropagation is a method of producing new plants in a short duration using plant tissue culture.
Some major advantages of micropropagation are as follows:

  •  Micropropagation helps in the propagation of a large number of plants in a short span of time.
  •  The plants produced are identical to the mother plant.
  • It leads to the production of healthier plantlets, which exhibit better disease-resisting powers.
