Producing high quality forages from halophytes is a challenging issue due to high level of stresses in some environmental variables. Ochradenus ochradeni can grow in various saline-sodium and non-saline-sodium soils. Plant samples from the species were collected to determine forage quality in vegetative, flowering and seed set stages with three replications in Hossein Abad & Badaf rangelands. NIR method was used to determine forage quality in each stage. Results indicated that the average DMD, CP, ADF, NDF, TDN, DE, ME and WSC were 48.8%, 10.33%, 47.4%, 68%, 41.8%, 15.4 MJ kg -1 dry weight and 6.3 MJ kg -1 dry weight and 14.7% respectively. Effects of season and area were significant on the all of the qualitative traits except NDF, ADF, DE & TDN. The DMD, WSC and ME values of samples in seed stage were significantly higher than the other stages. The soil chemical properties had no significant impacts on the plant species quality. This study indicated that Ochradenus ochradeni has good forage quality and contains critical forage quality components; therefore it has high potential for enriching plant composition in saline ecosystems.
