AbstractThe salt tolerance of five relatively recently released varieties of wheatgrass was evaluated in a 6-week greenhouse study. Barton western wheatgrass (Agropyron smithii Rydb.) tended to be more sensitive to salinity than Arriba or Rosana western wheatgrass. Critana thickspike wheatgrass (A. dasystachyum [Hook.] Scribn.) tended to be more salt tolerant than the western wheatgrasses but was not as salt tolerant as Jose tall wheatgrass (A. elongatum [Host] Beauv.).
