When Were Cloned Plants Discovered?

Answer

Genetic cloning or engineering, in its broadest definition, means to manipulate a species so that a particular trait is increased in the population. The earliest forms of plant cloning occurred on farms where seeds that had more production or were the tastiest were set aside to be used in the following plant season. This type of activity has probably been going on since mankind first settled in villages and began making a life for themselves in one location, about 12,000 years ago.
