Abstract/Contents:"Saline soil conditions exist on many turfgrass areas across North America, and are becoming more abundant with the use of secondary water sources for turf irrigation. The objectives of this research were to evaluate the salinity tolerance of several native grass species. The following native grasses were included: 'Bad River' blue grama (Boutoua gracilis [Willd. ex Kunth] Lag. ex Griffiths.), 'Barkoel' prairie junegrass (Koelaria macrantha [Ledeb.] J.A. Schultes), 'Golfstar' Idaho bentgrass (Agrostis idahoensis) and Alberta ecotype alkali grass (Puccinellia nuttaliana [Schultes] Hitchc.) Two development stages (advanced seedlings and mature plants) were evaluated in wooden flats which were surrounded by a plastic jacket and subirrigated with a 1% saline (NaCl) water every 3 weeks. This closed system provided increasing soil salinity levels over time. Alkali grass showed high levels of saline tolerance at both stages of development, with no plant mortality occurring over the course of the experiment. Bad River blue grama, Golfstar Idaho bentgrass and Barkoel prairie junegrass were tolerant of moderately saline soil (soil conductivity 8-12 mC/cm) as mature plants and moderately tolerant of slightly saline soil (soil conductivity 4-8 mC/cm) as advanced seedlings."
