I am not sure what you mean.
Do you mean in you propagating
of plants?
Or do you mean what is more
advantageous for the plant?
Seed production takes a lot
of energy from the plant.

If you want to propagate hybrids
for example, depending on what
they are, sometimes better to
take cuttings, very often they do
not come "true" from seed

The question is too broad if you can be more specific.
