USGA Summary Points:A pilot sod production technique is being evaluated for producing saltgrass vegetatively as sod. Different clones (plant genotypes) have responded to traffic with various degrees of tolerance, ranging from poor (loss of color and/or stand density) to increased visual shoot density under traffic. Weighing lysimeters will be constructed in the winter of 2004 which will allow for precise volumetric water content determiniation as a function of cumulative reference evapotranspiration. A large field area has been selected (graded for flood irrigation) for establishing clonal material for evaluation under 1.0-inch mowing.
