USGA Summary Points:"For all clones, at either mowing heights, saltgrass shoot length and shoot (clippings) dry matter (DM) wt. decreased linearly as drought period progressed. However, there were significant differences among the shoot lengths and DM wt. of different clones at any mowing height and at each harvest (bi-weekly growth)." "For most clones, there was no difference among the shoot lengths or clipping DM wt. between the two mowing heights. For all clones, general qualtiy of the grass followed the same pattern as the shoot (clippings) DM wt. It decreased linearly as drought period progressed. However, general qualities of various clones were significantly different than each other at either mowing height and at any weekly evaluation." "Most of the clones at the 2.5-cm mowing height maintained their green color for a longer period." "Considering all the study parameters together, there was a wide range of drought and mowing tolerance found among the various saltgrass clones." "Among all the studied clones, clone 72 was superior and the most tolerant to combined effects of drought and mowing stress, while clone A60 was the least tolerant."
