Abstract/Contents:Presents a project conducted to "evaluate germplasm and develop screening techniques in order to select cool-season turfgrasses for salt tolerance." Details the materials and methods used in the study, including "a sand culture system to evaluate salt tolerance under greenhouse conditions" at Rutgers University and Cook College. Results indicate that "the plants receiving the salt treatments showed signs of salt stress and significant diferences between these plants are evident." Reports that "if turf managers are expected to utiize non-potable water for irrigation of golf courses, residential areas and other urban landscapes, they need cultivars that can maintain adequate turf quality while being irrigated with water high in total soluble salts." Concludes that "this research could provide the tools (through the utilization of salt tolerant cultivars) for the successful transition to alternative water sources in order to help conserve...natural resources on turfgrass areas."
