In recent years the weed commonly known as dodder has become an important reason for the rejection of several alfalfa seed fields for certification in Utah. The rapid spread of infestation in alfalfa seed fields, difficulty in removing the dodder seed from the alfalfa seed due to the similarity in size, and a lack of adequate control are among the main causes for the rising concern with dodder, Dodder is an annual which reproduces from seed each year.
