Figure 1. Seashore paspalum (ET variety) putting green in Florida maintained with brackish water varying in salinity from 5,000 to 10,000 ppm total salinity. As a management protocol, undiluted seawater (30,000 to 32,000 ppm) is frequently used as a drench for the control of weed pests. Direct applications of table salt (NaCl) may also be used for weed control without damage to the turf.

Figure 3. A seashore paspalum (ET variety) fairway on a Florida golf course. This photograph illustrates the type of environment where  seashore paspalum is suited. Tidal surge associated with storm events leads to seawater flooding. The turf remains undamaged by the salinity or submergence following these occurrences.
