Salt tolerance trials with forage plants in south-western Australia

AL Rogers and ET Bailey

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 3(9) 125 - 130
Published: 1963


A number of forage plants, including reputed salt tolerant species, were tested on a saline-alkali soil at Kojonup, Western Australia. Some annual species gave initial promise but were relatively short-lived in sward conditions. Two perennial grasses, Agropyron elongatum (C.P.I. W296), and Puccinellia capillaris (C.P.I. 15034), persisted well in test plots and field trials. They provided good ground cover and some grazing on land previously thought to be of little value and a potential erosion hazard.
