USGA Summary Points:We have observed significant variation in salt tolerance among the National Plant Germplasm accessions. The most salt-tolerant accessions exceeded the tolerance of Kentucky bluegrass check varieties and approached or exceeded the tolerance of perennial ryegrass and tall fescue check varieties. These encouraging results will result in the evaluation of a wider selection of Poa pratensis and Poa spp. germplasm. Genes expressed at higher levels in salt-tolerant germplasm will be identified and considered for future DNA markers.
