In this study, unpollinated floral buds of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) were cultured on the Murashige and Skoog (MS) media containing Kinetin (Kin) and Indol Asetic Acid (IAA) at different concentrations for the callus cultures, The nutrient medium containing 2 mg/l Kin + 1 mg/l IAA was observed to be the best medium for the callus formation from ovule and ovarium tissues.
