Effects of culture media and genotypes of water chestnut (Trapa sp.) on the frequency of callus induction from anther culture were investigated. Results revealed that the N_6 media supplemented with 0.5 mg/l BA, 0.5 mg/l NAA and 0.1 mg/l GA_3 were suitable for callus induction. Callus yielded poorly in MS-containing media compared to that of N_6 media. No callus was induced on 2, 4-D containing media. Among the tested 18 genotypes, only 15 genotypes produced calli.
