Abstract/Contents:Profiles Dodder (Cuscuta spp.), a noxious weed. Focuses on the weed's life cycle and characteristics, and states that "dodder parasitizes various kinds of wild and cultivated plants." Notes that the weed lacks both leaves and roots, and requires nutrients from its host plant. Concludes that "its wide host range and the long life of its dormant seeds make dodder hard to control and nearly impossible to eradicate," suggesting the use of trifluralin for preventive control.
