Vegetative propagation

Propagation of plants in an asexual way, that is without seeds. Different parts of a plant (shoots, root parts or, as with many flowers onions) are planted in the ground, from which roots and shoots can then develop. In nature there is usually a gender or generative propagation instead, that is, the product is genetically different from the parents, which normally produces surviving offspring. But there are also some plants with natural vegetative reproduction (e.g. different types of moss). Vegetative propagation is used in plant breeding to produce plants in large quantities. In viticulture this means the propagation by mostly planting blind vines one Mutterrebe, Since the Rebstock extreme heterozygous (splitting), there is an increase, that is, the production of vines in nurseries, principally on a vegetative route.

at varieties descendants that are as identical as possible with the same characteristics as the mother vine are desired All of our cultivated grape varieties have therefore been vegetatively propagated for hundreds of years and have largely retained their genetic characteristics. In contrast to (reproductive) sexual reproduction, the vegetative descendant is almost identical to the mother vine and thus a so-called clone, Another form is the propagation by means of Absenker, Also the finishing is basically a vegetative propagation. For some time now there has also been micro-propagation, in which tiny parts (tissue culture) of a mother vine are used for the relatively rapid cultivation of young plants. The so-called stock division (Division of rhizomes) is for the multiplication of vines not suitable. See also under breeding,
