Can anyone out there identify a U.S. producer of _Chrysanthemum_
_cinerariifolium_, the source of the insecticidal natural product
pyrethrin?  How about Canadian or Mexican?

The plant is also known as pyrethrum, dalmatian pyrethrum, and
dalmatian insect flower.

If you have such information, please forward to by e-mail, and/or
posting here.   

Many thanks,
