The phenotypic variability among ten adapted populations of tall wheatgrass (Thinopyrum ponticum) germinating under saline stress conditions was evaluated as part of a breeding program. The aim of the breeding program was to provide new cultivars of tall wheatgrass adapted to saline soil conditions. Saline soils represent 8% of the total agricultural soil surface in Argentina.
