Abstract/Contents:"Bermuda-grass varieties, cut at weekly intervals, differed in salt tolerance when grown in 20 m. eq./l. Hoagland's Solution No. 1 plus 0, 80, 160, 240, and 320. m. eq./l. sodium and calcium chlorides. Weights of above-ground parts decreased while root weight to top weight ratios increased with increased salinity. Highest root weights were obtained at the intermediate to high salt levels. Explanations proposed for the root-growth stimulation are: maintenance of a high photosynthetic rate despite retardation of top growth, reduced percentage defoliation resulting from top growth retardation or a differential response of tops and roots to growth hormones."
