USGA Summary Points:The May seeding date is best for saltgrass establishment in Colorado, with seeding rates as low as 74 kg ha-1 achieving optimal establishment of saltgrass in one season. Saltgrass has higher establishment GDD requirements than bermudagras and buffalograss but lower or similar GDD requirements as zoysiagrass. Soaking scarified saltgrass seeds with 5-10 mM Proxy solution increased the subsequent germination of saltgrass at 5 - 20 dS m-1soil salinity. Thiourea pre-treatment did not increase saltgrass germination in the field conditions.
