USGA Summary Points:Cold moist stratification and dry scarification significantly improved germination and enhanced establishment of seeded saltgrass. When available water was present, saltgrass extracted most of the water from the surface 30 cm. When available water in the surface layer was depleted and grass exhibited mild stress symptoms, saltgrass extracted water 180-270 cm deep in the soil profile. The average water use rate of saltgrass was about 46-50% of estimated Kentucky bluegrass ET.
