Expert Answer:

Grafting is an artificial method of asexual reproduction used to produce plants combining favorable stem characteristics with favorable root characteristics. The stem of the plant to be grafted is known as the scion, and the root is called the stock. Since grafting does not involve the union of male and female germ cells is cannot be regarded as sexual reproduction. It is a form of asexual reproduction.
