Abstract/Contents:Briefly presents a study on "the changes in growth parameters, water status, and ionic content of Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue when subjected hydroponically to salt stress." Details the materials and methods employed during the study, stating that "the plants were separated into five groups, and each cultivar was irrigated with a nutrient solution supplemented with different concentrations of NaCl [sodium chloride]." Reports that "the root length of Kentucky bluegrass was decrease by 52.4% [percent]...in contast, however, the root length of tall fescue increased with increasing salinity." Concludes that "different responses between Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue appear that salt tolerance is associated with higher root growth, higher K [potassium] selectivity ratios and less Cl (chlorine) accumulation in shoots."
