Abstract/Contents:"Turfgrasses are not only used for beautiful greens, but also in many cases in construction on road-sides on the middle-stripes and also on the dikes near the coast. In these mentioned reaches the influence of salt is very important. On roads it is the salt, which is strewed out during the wintertime. The salty water washed into the greenstripes killes [kills] the grasses without salt-resistance. On the coast, the dikes should be protected against the sea. But only grass varieties with high salt tolerance can protect the dikes against the sea. In breeding work on lawn grasses we had to accept these demands in selecting material which is tolerant against the influence of salt. In many tests the species red fescue and perennial ryegrass showed a certain tolerance. From this species should selections be made which are high tolerant against the influence of salt. For selecting, the grassplants were planted in pots and continously [continuously] treated with different concentreated [concentrated] salty water. The saltcontent of the water was 0 % - 1 % - 2 % - 4 %. During the test-time the salt content increased more and more till to the point when the plant died or showed a certain tolerance. After about 6 weeks of treatment with the saltwater the plants remain under normal conditions (without salt treatment) untill [until] to the next growing period. All material with a good salt-tolerance will be taken for further breeding work. This way there were developed good varieties of red fescue and perennial ryegrass which are available for the mentioned purposes."
