Abstract/Contents:"Twelve varieties of salt tolerant grasses were seeded next to a water hazard at the Olds Central Highlands Golf Club in June. Selections for entry into the trial were based on saline tolerance ratings found in the Manual of Plant Suitability for Reclamation in Alberta - 2nd Edition, and recommendations from seed industry personnel. Since the trial was established this year, only preliminary data and trends are presented. Boreal Creeping Red Fescue demonstrated the highest overall ratings, followed closely by Crewcut Tall Fescue. Other promising species included, the Alkali Grasses, Revenue Slender Wheatgrass and Swift Russian Wild Ryegrass (these grasses rounded out the top five). Winter hardiness will be a factor considered in next season's evaluation. Traditionally Tall Fescues exhibit poor overwintering capabilities in this area. Therefore the ratings could change dramatically in subsequent years."
