, semiarid climates; however, it has relatively poor salt tolerance ( Alshammary, 2013 ; Marcum, 2008 ). Many studies have attempted to assess the potential for salt tolerance among kentucky bluegrass cultivars through many varying methods ( Alshammary et al

methods to address salt damage is use of species and cultivars that exhibit salinity tolerance. Mintenko and Smith (2001) reported prairie junegrass was tolerant to moderate soil salinity levels (4 to 8 dS·m −1 ) at maturity but more sensitive to

). One approach to enhance lettuce production in saline soils and water is to develop salt-tolerant cultivars, which may be achieved by exploiting intraspecific variability ( Dewey, 1962 ; Wei et al., 2014 ). Considerable variability in salt tolerance

( Liang et al., 2015 ). It has been widely reported that the application of Si to plants may increase salt tolerance among many important agricultural crops, such as wheat ( Ahmad, 2014 ; Gurmani et al., 2013a ), rice ( Gong et al., 2006 ; Gurmani et al
