Advantages:- 1) If hybridisation is done properly then we can get a fruit or a crop according to our desire and our needed charecterstics. Ex- If we want a big, sweet and juicy mango in a very short period of time the we can hydridise it according to our desired charecterstics.

2) We can hybridise different gene of the fruit or crop, different variety of fruit or crop and we can also hydridise different species of crop and plant.

Disadvantages:-  By hybidisation we can get our desired charecterstics into a crop plant in a very short period of time but sometimes it may be harmful and dangereous for the plant and for us also as it could damage some part of the crop plant and when we will eat it we could also be harmed.
