Abstract/Contents:"Eight species of turfgrasses or turfgrass alternatives were examined for salinity tolerance by growing them in hydroponics culture in a greenhouse. Salinity tolerance decreased in the order of: alkaligrass (Distichlis spicata), alkali sacaton (Sporobolus airoides), `Arizona common' bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon), `Meyer' zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica), sand dropseed (S. cryptandrus), `Prairie' buffalograss (Buchloe dactyloides), `Haskell' sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula), and black grama (B. eriopoda). Rooting parameters (depth and weight) were directly associated with salinity tolerance. Root weights increased under salinity in 2 grasses: alkaligrass and alkali sacaton. Leaf osmotic potential (a measure of the amount of saline ions and other solutes) was highest in the most salt-sensitive grasses, indicating that salt tolerance in turfgrass is associated with salt exclusion from leaves."
