USGA Summary Points:Saltgrass shoot (clippings) dry matter wt. decreased linearly with increasing salinity for all clones. For most clones, there was no difference among the root dry matter at different salinity levels. General quality of the grass followed the same pattern as the shoot (clippings) wt. in that it decreased linearly with increasing salinity levels for all clones. Considering all the study parameters together, there was a wide range of salinity tolerance found among the 12 saltgrass clones. The 240 & 239 clones were the most salt tolerant clones followed by A128, 72, A138. These were cloesly followed by A50, A86, and A49 in salinity tolerance. A49 clone ranked between this and the last group in regards to salinity tolerance. A60, A107, A37, and A126 were among the lowest salinity tolerant grasses which the A126 was the least tolerant clone.
