Abstract/Contents:"Major soil physical and chemical constraints to grass root growth, persistence, and viability are: low soil O2, high soil strength, salt toxicity/deficiency, acid soil complex, and high soil/aerial temperatures. Development of drought resistant turfgrasses is dependent on improving genetic-based root tolerance to these five stresses. Thus, greater research attention should be focused on these stresses by plant breeders/geneticists, stress physiologists, soil scientists and biotechnology researchers. Attention is needed at the intraspecific level toward understanding important resistance mechanisms of stress tolerant ecotypes for these five stresses as well as other stresses. Then, efficient stress-screening protocols can be developed. Multiple and single stress screening protocols are suggested for most efficient germplasm development. Also, a common central, focusing theme is suggested to integrate scientists in all disciplines (including biotechnology areas) into a more unified approach; namely, the theme is "concentrate on stress mechanisms within a species that impart stress resistance to tolerant genotypes with special emphasis on soil physical and chemical constraints to rooting."
