Exploratory salt tolerance tests were made with several grasses and cereals grown in various dilutions of sea water, in soils salinized to 0.02-0.3% of NaCl, or in soil columns with salt concentrations increasing from 0.05-0.1% in the surface to 0.4-0.6% in the deeper layers of the profile. Cereal rye showed the greatest germination capacity and barley the best growth under saline conditions, particularly when seeded at rates higher than normal.
