Head up to a Bush and swing the Reaper’s Scythe or Scythe Axe on it to harvest it. This will yield anywhere from 1 to 4 Salt Grass depending on your Gathering Tool’s bonus effects. Having a “Gathering Up S/M/L” on your gathering tool will yield more materials.

Make sure you have the Sickle or Sickle Axe equipped. Using a different Harvest Tool will give you a different material. | Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout

Recommended Location

The Main Road – Shipyard is the recommended place to quickly farm for Salt Grass since the bushes are not only close to the fast travel arrival point, there are no enemies near the bushes. The other two areas are infested with enemies near the bushes which can slow down your farm if you accidentally encounter one.
