USGA Summary Points:Progeny of individual single crosses of the best elite parents are being evaluated for segregation, vigor as a measure of inbreeding (since some parents were related), and as a source for improved germplasm and/or lines. Accessions A50, A49, and 72 have been identified for their superior salinity tolerance. However, saltgrasses are less tolerant to salinity during germination compared to mature stands. Higher fructose, glucose and raffinose concentrations were frequently observed in accessions with superior cold hardiness during mid-winter. Saltgrass accessions continue to be evaluated in response to different mowing heights and nitrogen fertilizer applications.
