Dodder causes sufficient agricultural losses to be considered a noxious weed in many states. Seed certification regulations help to restrict the spread of this prolific seed producer, but it is very difficult to clean out of many small-seeded crops. Once dodder has infested a seed production area, susceptible crops may be limited for several years since many species of dodder may infest more than one host.
