distributed throughout much of the western U.S., as well as Europe and Asia. This cool-season grass has potential for use as a low-input turf in the northern U.S. due to its tolerance to droughty and alkaline soils, its ability to grow in sandy areas, and its

). 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
