AbstractKochia americana, desert molly, is a forage species of the western U.S.A. which grows on highly saline soils. This study, which shows that desert molly can germinate at much higher salinities than other halophytic forage plants, encourages further work on the species in hope that it can be used in revegetation of depleted salt desert sites.
