US funds pyrethrum production in Africa

The US consumer products company, S C Johnson (Racine, Wisconsin), and the US Agency for International Development, are to fund a project in Rwanda aimed at boosting production of the botanical insecticide, pyrethrum. The 28-month project aims to triple chrysanthemum production and raise the pyrethrum content of the flowers. Global demand for pyrethrum is about twice as high as supply, according to the project’s partners. S C Johnson has been purchasing pyrethrum from east Africa for use in its household insecticides for over 40 years.
