|Authors||Martin, J. T. and Tattersfield, F.|
The effects of light, temperature and dormancy upon pyrethrum have been studied. The partial shading of the plant during the five months preceding flowering resulted in the production of smaller flowers with a reduced pyrethrin content. The successful flowering of the plant was largely dependent upon the relative temperatures experienced throughout the year. A dormant period, dependent upon sufficiently low winter temperatures, was shown to be necessary for the normal production of large numbers of flowers.
