Pyrethrum


Features

Contrary to what one might think, medicinal plants are not used in phytotherapy only for the treatment of body disorders, but also for diseases of some animals or to create effective fertilizer that makes crops strong and protected from parasites and fungi. Among these plants with a particular function there is also the pyrethrum, an easy-to-grow plant that can prove to be extremely useful for various functions with all the advantage of a natural product and therefore with very few contraindications. Pyrethrum is a perennial plant that can also have a decorative function, due to its colorful flowers very similar to daisies. It is a perennial bushy plant, with a rounded shape and broadly branched stems, they develop rigid but at the same time slender for a height of up to fifty cm. The leaves have deeply engraved margins while the flowers with white petals give life to small fruits in the form of brown achenes, which contain only one seed each. They are responsible for the spread and generation of new plants. Pyrethrum is a plant native to Dalmatia, used and exploited since ancient times for its natural properties, which however can be found today also in Italy in the form of spontaneous sprouting, or in any case cultivated with good results both for large-scale production. scale both as regards the decoration of your garden and the cultivation of a useful quantity for domestic needs.


Active ingredients and benefits

The functions that pyrethrum is able to perform are many and varied: its oldest function is that of a natural repellent against the presence of flies, insects and mosquitoes, which are particularly annoying during the summer. Placing pyrethrum pots near the windows can thus constitute at the same time a graceful decorative element and also an effective barrier to protect the home from the entry of insects, without having to resort to chemicals or unnatural products, certainly less healthy. Cultivating a small area in your garden with pyrethrum can give life to a practical area sheltered from insects to spend the summer evenings, only to be able to resort to fruits and flowers rich in active ingredients to protect other crops from pests and diseases, or to treat ailments related to worms and parasites in animals, or even in humans. Dried flowers are also used as a moth control.


Cultivation

Pyrethrum is increasingly cultivated also on the national territory in conjunction with the growing use precisely as a very effective insecticide and not harmful to humans and warm-blooded animals. Like any annual plant, with some forethought even the pyrethrum can be grown in complete tranquility in your own garden or in your vegetable garden, with all the advantage of seeing an extremely useful and at the same time decorative plant grow, very similar to common daisies. However, it requires an adequately fertile soil, high temperatures and a positioning in very sunny areas: if all this is not possible, the pyrethrum is often cultivated in a greenhouse like any annual plant with regular intervals. Not surprisingly, the places where pyrethrum is most cultivated are Kenya and Congo, which are the largest exporters of pyrethrum in the world. More generally, Africa and Asia are the places that most respond to the growing consumption of pyrethrum in the world, as the basic active ingredient of many insecticides and processed products but also as regards the plant in its natural state, precisely because in able to offer the best climatic conditions to the growth of the plant.


Products on the market

Given the decorative power, it is increasingly possible to buy pyrethrum as a plant to be transferred to your garden or even as a decorative flower, however the greatest consumption of pyrethrum is found in the form of processed products, or insecticides dedicated to the agricultural market. based on pyrethrum. The widespread diffusion is linked to the extreme effectiveness of pyrethrum as an insecticide and at the same time the practically total absence of toxicity for humans and, more generally, for warm-blooded animals: this means that pyrethrum can be safely used. even in private gardens and vegetable gardens to protect their crops, without any risk for the possible presence of pets.


Pyrethrum: How it works

Pyrethrum-based insecticides, to be sprayed on the products to be protected, act by contact and by ingestion, for this reason their effectiveness is high, while for the same reason it is important that the product does not contain any other elements that could harm animals or people. , which will then go to consume the fruit products of the seedlings that it was desired to protect in the growth and development phase. The pyrethrum actually acts on the nervous system of insects causing complete paralysis of the limbs and totally preventing their movement. However, the effect does not last for long and this does not necessarily lead to the death of the affected insect. The pyrethrum should absolutely not be used during the flowering period: in this case it would also affect the pollinating bees that carry out an indispensable job for the evolution of plant species.

Annibale Giordano was born 20 September 1769 in Ottaviano - San Giuseppe Vesuviano, to an educated middle-class family. His father Michele was a doctor who served both the king Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies, and the Medici princes of Ottaviano. As a teenager, Annibale Giordano attended the school of Nicolò Fergola, a brilliant mathematician from Naples. [1] In 1789, the year of the French Revolution, he was appointed professor at the Nunziatella Military School, thus becoming a colleague of the chemist Carlo Lauberg [fr], a freemason. [2] In 1790, Giordano and Lauberg established an Academy of Chemistry and Mathematics in Naples, which became a club for Neapolitan progressives and Freemasons among the members were Mario Pagano, Emanuele De Deo [it], Francesco Lomonaco, Vincenzo De Filippis and Luigi de 'Medici di Ottajano, then regent of the Grand Court of the Vicar [it] court. In 1792 Giordano and Lauberg wrote the Analytical principles of Mathematics, in which they theorized the political commitment of mathematicians [3] this essay was Annibale Giordano's last scientific work.

In December 1792, Giordano was one of the scholars who met the French admiral Latouche-Tréville starting from those meetings, a conspiracy began, sketched in the birth in August 1793 of the Neapolitan Patriotic Society [en] , a Jacobin association, but structured on the model of Masonic lodges, with a hierarchy such that some secrets were known only by high-ranking members. [4] In February 1794, the Neapolitan Patriotic Society split into two clubs. The ROMO (an acronym for Republic or Death, i.e. "Republic or Death" was more radical and led by Andrea Vitaliani [it], among whose members were also Emanuele De Deo, Vincenzo Galiani [it] and Vincenzo Vitaliani). The LOMO (acronym for "Libertà o Morte", i.e. "Freedom or Death"), was more moderate and willing to accept a constitutional monarchy, and was led by Rocco Lentini, and joined by Annibale Giordano).

On 21 March 1794, authorities discovered the organization through a report by a certain Donato Froncillo in the subsequent trial, some adherents of the ROMO (De Deo, Galiani and Vincenzo Vitaliani) were sentenced to death and executed, while Giordano was sentenced to twenty years [4] and transferred to the Forte Spagnolo prison. Many sources state that Annibale Giordano told investigators the secrets of the Neapolitan Patriotic Society [5] and that he gave the names of over 250 members, [6] including Luigi de 'Medici, who was incarcerated. [7]

Back in Naples together with the general Championnet on 5 December 1798, a few days after being released from L'Aquila, Annibale Giordano actively joined the short-lived Neapolitan Republic of 1799 as a member of the military committee and then head of the Navy's accounting service. When the Republic fell (on June 1799), he was again imprisoned by the Bourbon king in Castel Nuovo together with eighteen other revolutionaries including Mario Pagano, Domenico Cirillo and Giuseppe Leonardo Albanese [it]. On 27 January 1800, he was sentenced to death by the junta but the sentence was commuted to captivity on Favignana island on July 1801, he left the island together with other political prisoners thanks to the Treaty of Lunéville. The non-execution was explained by many as a reward for Giordano's denunciation [5] others state that it was due to intercession by his father or Fergola at the Bourbon court. [8] Giordano fled to France where he worked as cadastral surveyor in the French department of Aube in 1824, he became a naturalized French citizen and changed his surname to Jourdan.

In 1786, Giordano already presented to the Royal Academy of Sciences of Naples a memoir entitled Continuation of the same topic, [9] which opened the doors of the Academy to him. Shortly thereafter, in 1788, he became famous for solving the following problem: "Given a circle and n points of its plane, inscribe in this circle a polygon whose sides, possibly prolonged, pass, according to a certain order, through the given points "[10] this problem was a generalization of the" problem of Pappus ", which had been already solved for the case of n= 3 aligned points, [11] and the "problem of Castillon", solved by the latter in 1776, proposed to him by Cramer, for n= 3 points but still arranged in the plane. [12] Carnot thought that "Ottajano", the birthplace of Giordano, was a noble predicate rather than a town, and he called the young mathematician "Ottajano" in his publications [13] after this, he began to be referred to as " Ottajano "in subsequent scientific publications.
