The propagation of plant is required for the purpose of the multiplication of new plants. The producers want desired character of plant and for that purpose they need true to type plants. The true to type plants can’t be produce by the sexual reproduction. The different types of clonal propagation methods can be used for the producing true to type plants Clone means plants which are the exact copy of the individual parents by asexual propagation. Clonal propagation can be used as a method of the production of the genetically identical copies of the individual parent. The clones are required for the purpose of producing identical plants as sexually propagated plants have different variations which can affect the yield, quality and the other characters. To avoid these variations asexual methods are promoted for the propagation of genetically identical new plant such as cutting, layering, tissue culture etc. Many researchers have carried out the work to develop new and different techniques for the sole purpose of clonal propagation of plant.
