Why are plants obtained through micropropagation term somaclones? Name three food plants produced on commercial scale using this method.

Dear student

Please refer the solution below for the said query


The plants produced through micropropagation technique are termed as somaclones as they are produced from parts of plant (explant) other than reproductive cells and are genetically identical to the original plant. Hence, are termed as somaclones.  
The three food plants produced on commercial scale using this method are tomato, banana and sugarcane.


Hope this information clears your doubt about the topic.
