USGA Summary Points:Second-cycle parents were selected for rust resistance, shoot density, clean leaf cut, seed production, and other turf traits, and will intercross in winter greenhouses. Large crossing blocks are being planted to study commercial seed harvesting. Salinity level of 25% clipping yield reduction ranged from 20.3 -29.2 dS m-1 for 12 elite saltgrass lines. Colorado saltgrass accessions were 4° to 10°C cold hardier than those from California. Planting early in the season can reduce winter injury of cold-susceptible saltgrass accessions.
