Abstract
The prominent range grasses like Blue panic grass (Panicum antidotale), Blue stem grass (Dichanthium annulatum) and Buffel grass (Cenchrus cilliaris) were tested against 10, 20 and 30 dS/m ECe (Electrical conductivity) of salinity. The results showed that forage and seed production, plant height, fresh green leave weight; number of tillers per plant in all grasses decreased in response to increasing degrees of salinity. Blue panic grass gave the highest seed and forage yield.
