Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate salinity stress tolerance of cultivars of several turfgrass species, including perennial ryegrass, creeping bentgrass, and Kentucky bluegrass using a combination of greenhouse and field screening techniques." Describes the experiment and the methods used, explaining that "this research will provide recommendations to golf course superintendents regarding salt tolerant cultivars, advance turfgrass breeding genetics, as well as help conserve our natural resources."

USGA Summary Points:Significant differences were observed in clones of five perennial ryegrass cultivars treated with 4 different salinity levels (1, 5, 10, and 15 dS/m) under greenhouse conditions. Four clones of 'Palmer III' and one clone of 'Applaud' exhibited the highest percent green ratings compared to clones of 'Paragon GLR', 'Brightstar SLT', and 'Nui'. Significant differences were observed in 21 Kentucky bluegrass cultivars treated with 4 different salinity levels (1, 3, 6, and 9 dS/m) under greenhouse conditions. The cultivars exhibiting the highest percent green ratings were 'Eagleton', 'Liberator', and 'Cabernet'. The cultivars and selections with the lowest percent green were a Texas x Kentucky bluegrass selection A03TB-246, 'Baron', and the Kentucky bluegrass selection A03-84. In all greenhouse runs for all cool-season turfgrass species, there were significant differences between salinity treatments with higher salinity treatments causing more injury to turfgrass plants. Percent green ratings were highly correlated to clipping yields, root weights, and shoot weights for all species. Significant differences were observed among cultivars and selections for all species under field conditions. Results were significantly correlated to greenhouse salt chamber results and indicate that we may use the greenhouse screening technique to select cultivars with improved salinity tolerance that will also exhibit similar field responses. Initial broad-sense heritability of salinity tolerance in perennial ryegrass was estimated to be 0.78.
