Survival of both species was 97 to % 17 months after planting on plots with buried drilling wastes. Canopy cover and aboveground biomass of fourwing saltbrush were greater over buried drilling wastes than on untreated plots, whereas canopy cover and aboveground biomass of buffalograss were not affected by the treatments.

Fourwing saltbush is a nondescript shrubby member of the goosefoot family (Chenopodiaceae) that ranges across much of the southern Great Plains, Great Basin, and desert southwest.

It is characterized by grayish, linear to spoon-shaped leaf blades, yellowish twigs, and small, yellowish, or brown wind-pollinated flowers clustered in slender.

Fourwing saltbush seedlings grow rapidly during the first three months and moderately fast within four to six months. Predation by rabbits and rodents can be extremely detrimental to the survival of young plants.

Plants become seed-bearing as early as 18 months and reach maturity within three to five years. The Four-Wing Saltbush has 1 inch long leaves that are linear and inverse lance shaped covered with small scales.

Range: occurs throughout the Rocky Mountain Region from South Dakota to Mexico and west to California. They grow in salt rich sandy soils.

Clones of superior pollen- and seed-producing plants of 4 fourwing saltbush (Atriplex canescens [Pursh] Nutt.) ecotypes were planted in a seed orchard in west-central Texas to determine if seed production and quality could be enhanced by irrigation and ts of nitrogen (N) at kgha −1, phosphorous (P) at kgha −1, N + P at + kgha −1, or no fertilizer Cited by: Fourwing saltbush is an important species in the northern salt desert shrub association.

Average annual precipitation in this desert area varies from 6 to 14 inches but is mostly in the 8 to 12 inch range; summers are hot and dry and winters are normally cold. Fourwing saltbush grows on a wide range of soils from clays to sands. Survival of fourwing saltbush transplants was at least 80% when alluvial field sites had soil moisture levels of at least 14% by weight or were at tensions between 1/3 and 2 atmospheres.

Fourwing Saltbush is best used as a component in range seedings especially in high saline, droughty soils. Seedings should be made on a well-prepared, firm weed free seedbed. Seeding rates of 1 -2 pure live seed pounds per acre when blended with native forbs and grasses is adequate.
