Abstract

Recent press publicity has emphasised the salt tolerance of the grass Paspalum vaginatum, which is also called Sea Shore Paspalum. This grass is available in Western Australia, and in recent years the Department of Agriculture has distributed small quantities of runners and roots to a few hundred farmers in the agricultural areas. A number have reported considerable success in growing this salt-tolerant grass on wet salt-affected areas which were previously bare.
