Abstract/Contents:Presents a study initiated during 2008 to "(1) identify improved salt- and sodium-tolerant genotypes and introgress the tolerance into adapted turf-type genotypes of annual ryegrass and increase seed of these populations for experimental testing," and "(2) test new experimental lines of annual ryegrass under greenhouse and field conditions of highly saline and sodici soil and water, and release the line as a salt-tolerant variety." Details methods and materials used during the study, stating that "seed (300 g [grams]) was broadcast over a 30- x 30-ft [feet] area. Sprinkler irrigation was used to germinate and establish a stand." Reports that "seed from the most salt-tolerant breeding lines as described from the Pecos screening trial will be increased in Oregon during the 2010-11 growing season. This increase is made up of 50% [percent] TXR2010-SSEG, 33.3% TXR2009-SSBlk, 8.3% Salt S-10, and 8.3% Pecos Blk 2010." Concludes that "differences for salt tolerance between [among] genotypes were obtained in both greenhouse and field experiments," and that "seed of the elite salt-tolerant germplasm will be increased in Oregon in 2010-11 for further testing in 2011-12."

USGA Summary Points:Differences for salt tolerance between genotypes were obtained in both greenhouse and field experiments Elite salt-tolerant germplasm selected at Pecos, Texas, was rated as most tolerant in a Pecos salinity trial in 2010. Seed of the elite salt-tolerant germplasm will be increased in Oregon in 2010-11 for further testing in 2011-12
