Why is it disadvantageous to grow plants vegetatively?
It is disadvantageous to grow plants vegetatively because of following:
- As all plants developed by vegetative propagation are identical, they are likely to be affected simultaneously if a disease spreads in the farm.
- Dispersal of plants does not take place on its own. Daughter plants, so developed, tend to remain nearby and are restricted to a particular area leading to competition for resources.
