Abstract: 

Puccinellia distanseis perennial forage, belongs to poaceae family, grow in waterlogged lands with relatively high salinity. In this research, the growth of Puccinellia distance plants with Caspian Sea, Incheh and Ajigol saltmarshs and runoff water in Golestan province were investigated to evaluate the potential of withstanding this plant with these salty waters. The highest electrical conductivity (EC) and total dissolved solid (TDS), material was observed in Ajigol saltmarsh, Incheh runoff waters had the medicated, and Caspian Sea indicated the lowest values. Plants were cultivated in sand culture and waterlogged in Hoagland nutrient solution prepared from complete, two and four times diluted of these waters. The Hoagland nutrient solution created from tap water of Gorgan city was used as control. Plants were harvested after two months growth before reproductive stage. The result indicated that Puccinellia distanse plants are not able to withstand in even four times diluted water of Ajigol and Incheh saltmarshs, however, it could resist in Caspian Sea and runoff water. The highest growth of plants was observed in four times diluted runoff water that indicated even more dry mass compared to control (Gorgan city tap water) that may related to high concentration of nitrogen compounds specially nitrate in this water. The results indicated Puccinellia distance plant has a certain ability to withstand to salinity and could utilized for reclamation of seashore and lowlands of runoff water accumulation.
