USGA Summary Points:Two lines with different turf characteristics were selected for potential release as vegetative cultivars. Several lines with adequate commercial seed production yields have been established in the field for evaluation for potential release as seeded cultivars. Mini-rhizotron images indicated that root growth in container grown saltgrass showed increased flushes of fine root growth in response to moderate levels of salinity (8 dS/m) compared to the control. Field-grown saltgrass plots of varying stand age (1, 4, 5, and 8 years) demonstrated that saltgrass root mass was greater with increasing stand age.
