Kentucky Bluegrass Germination and Early Seedling Growth Under Saline Conditions
A. J. Zuk, T. M. DeSutter, Q. Zhang, and M. P. Hafdahl
Kentucky bluegrass is prefered over other cool-season grasses by homeowners and athletic field managers in North Dakota. However, Kentucky bluegrass is sensitive to soil salinity, a common problem in North Dakota. Identifying salt-tolerant Kentucky bluegrass cultivars would allow more options for high-quality, cool-season turfgrasses on saline soil, rather than native grasses which perform better than Kentucky bluegrass on saline sites but do not produce a high-quality turf and have a shorter growing season in the northern plains.
