One of 1,872 pamphlets in the series: Farmers' bulletin (United States. Dept. of Agriculture) available on this site.

Description

"Dodder, on account of its parasitic nature, is the most dangerous weed in alfalfa and clover fields, and also often affects flax. On account of the large quantity of low-grade seed containing dodder imported from Europe and the prevalence of dodder in the alfalfa-growing regions of the West, its seed is becoming more and more common in commercial seeds. In this paper an attempt has been made to point out the dangerous character of the various kinds of dodder and to give practical suggestions for the eradication of dodder from infested areas." -- p. 2
