USGA Summary Points:Progeny of elite parents are being evaluated for segregation of turf traits, including ground spread through the use of digital imaging. Large crossing blocks are being planted to study commercial seed harvesting. Saltgrass has an extremely deep root system, reaching 2.7 meters below soil surface in the field when aboveground is mowed to 6.4 cm. Saltgrass accessions collected from South California cannot survive Colorado winter. Saltgrass requires approximately 20°C day and night temperature difference to produce maximal germination.
Geographic Terms:North America
