Abstract
Dodder, a parasitic herbage, is widely distributed throughout china.It is a very troublesome hogweed in agricultural production. People have to spend more human and material resources to get rid of it. Does dodder has some useful values? It has been provided by clinical applicant text and modern medical analysis that dodder is a medical plant. Although it is harmful in agriculture, its seeds, nectar and pollen play an important role in preventing and curing disease, preserving health and cosmetology. The traditional method of cultivating dodder is to cultivate soybean, flax and other annal plants firstly. Then use these plants as the hosts to cultivate dodder. But this method has some disadvantages such as complicated program and low efficiency. The new method by using drylands willow to cultivate dodder is worth popularizing for its simplicity and high efficiency.
