Abstract/Contents:Discusses salt tolerance of cool-season turfgrasses, stating that "salinity has been recognized as a major agricultural problem on more than 20 percent of irrigated agricultural land around the world." Details a research project conducted to "develop screening methods to assess the salt tolerance of cool-season turfgrasses and identify cultivars and selections with increased levels of salt tolerance." Explains that "twenty-one Kentucky bluegrass cultivars and selections were evaluated in the greenhouse salt chamber screening...Plants were irrigated every other day with fresh water and the nutrient solution for a week before salt treatments were initiated. Salt was added at 1.5 dS [deciSiemens]/m [meter] each irrigation day until the maximum EC [electrical conductivity] was reached in order to prevent shocking the plants with the full strength salt solution." Reports that "research indicates that it should be feasible to evaluate salt tolerance of Kentucky bluegrass under greenhouse and field conditions."
