Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "identify salt-tolerant Poa germplasm that can be incorporated into breeding and genetics efforts." Describes the experiment and methods used. Reports that "based on two runs of the salinity screening experiment, several germplasm sources were identified with consistently high-salinity tolerance during both runs of the study."

USGA Summary Points:We have observed significant variation in salt tolerance among a diverse set of Poa species and Poa pratensis germplasm. 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. Over 700 genes related to salt response were cloned and sequenced, some with known involvement in salt tolerance in other plant species.
