What is the advantage of Interspecific Hybridisation?

Interspecific Hybridization  is a type of out breeding in which males and females of different, but related species are mated. The main advantage of this type of breeding is that progeny/ offsprings are produced which have the desirable features of both the species i.e the new individual produced is superior to the existing ones.

Example − Mule is an interspecific hybrid of donkey and horse. The mule is superior than both donkey and horse.
