The bentgrasses ( Agrostis spp.) are important species to the turfgrass industry because of their ability to form a dense, high-quality turf at low mowing heights. There are between 150 and 200 species of Agrostis ( Harvey, 2007 ), and the

Pessarakli, 2010 ; Sun et al., 2015 ). Turfgrasses increasingly experience salt stress because of the accelerated salinization of agricultural lands and increasing demand on the use of reclaimed or other secondary saline water for irrigation of turfgrass

abundance responding to interactive effects of drought and CO 2 in leaves of creeping bentgrass, widely used as fine turfgrass, with a goal to suggest potential metabolic factors regulated by elevated CO 2 contributing to improved drought tolerance
