Whole plant and callus cultures of different rapid-cycling Brassica species were treated with salinity (8 dS m-1) and/or supplemental Ca (up to 10 mM total concentration). None of these cultures responded to supplemental Ca with improved growth indicating that the salt tolerance of these genotypes was not dependent upon Ca.
