The aim of this study, which was conducted in Ankara University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Field Crops, biotechnology laboratory in 1998-1999, was to determine the callus induction and plant regeneration capacity of oat (Avena sativa L.). The mature embryos of 10 oat genotypes were utilised for callus induction. The statistical analysis of the results revealed that callus induction and plant regeneration capacity were dependent on the oat genotype. However, a significant relationship was not established between callus induction and regeneration capacity and, furthermore, the number of regenerated plants was determined to be directly related to the callus production capacity.
