Plant Propagation

After we create genetically superior clones or populations of plants through breeding efforts, we must have a method to perpetuate, or propagate, these plants. Plant propagation techniques allow us to grow thousands of acres of a superior corn variety or to have the same day lily variety growing in thousands of yards. Some plants are most easily propagated through sexual reproduction via seed propagation. With other plants, asexual reproduction methods are used more extensively.
