Most reports have been based on the ability of seed to germinate in saline conditions. Germination is necessary, but what then! Our priority was to select varieties that survive and thrive in the long term.
DLF has tested a wide range of varieties to identify the
most salt tolerant varieties within each species. We felt that more knowledge was needed about the salinity reaction.
Sometimes it is just a question of producing a green dense carpet. But most often you want to reach a certain level of visual merit or adaptation to sport (wear tolerance etc.). That is where you will find the benefits of using the special 4salt© mixtures!
