Endogenous and exogenous plant growth regulators play essential role in the growth and proliferation of calluses. To establish an efficient protocol of callus proliferation, various concentrations of a-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) (0.4, 0.5, 0.6 mg·L−1) in combination with 6-benzylaminopurine (6-BA) (1.5, 2.0, 2.5 mg·L−1) on callus proliferation of Chinese kale were evaluated. The results showed that the best callus proliferation was observed on MS medium with 0.4 mg·L−1 NAA and 2.5 mg·L−1 6-BA after 30 d of culture, and the morphology of the callus was yellowish in colour and friable. This study provides a basis for future studies on genetic improvement for Chinese kale.
