family Asteraceae (Asteraceae) - Asteraceae

The generic name is derived from two Latin words bis - double, double and dens - tooth, because the fruit has two cloves.The specific definition - of the tri - three- and partita - split given in the form of leaves.

Botanical description. Annual herb with a short, highly branched root.

Stems are erect, the top oppositely branched, 15-60 cm tall. The leaves are opposite, short-petiolate, tripartite, and in plants grown on soil rich in humus, they are called quinquepartite.But although this term is found in the national botanical literature in the normative and technical documentation, it is, in our opinion, is wrong.Leaves have very deep cuts and have called these pieces.Segments lanceolate with serrated edges.

flowers dirty yellow, all tubular, assembled in single basket on top of the stem and opposite axillary shoots baskets two-row wrapper.The outer leaves are lanceolate, entire, green, horizontal deflection, internal - shorter than flowers, brown-yello

w or reddish, membranous, pressed to the basket.Calyx, like all the Asteraceae, is missing, instead there are 2 (rarely 3-4) serrated tip, which lengthened after flowering and remain in fruit-achenes.The points along the edge of melkoschetinistye.Kinks are directed obliquely downward and, therefore, the fruits easily cling to the fur of animals, human clothing, and frequently transferred over long distances.

blooms from late June to September.The fruits ripen in late September - October.

Biological features.A series of tripartite - water-loving plant, so the industrial plantations are placed in areas with high humidity.

succession - a typical culture of temperate climate.Best of all, it grows on soil, the top layer which retains moisture well and does not form a crust (light sandy and loamy soils).Freshly harvested seeds have a high germination (80-90%) maintain their 5-7 years.After 6 years of storage and reduced germination is 60-65%.In the field, the seeds begin to sprout at a temperature of 3-4 ° C, the optimum germination temperature of 15-20 "C, they appear within 15-21 days.

locus. It grows in humid lowlands along the banks of rivers, ponds, streams,swamps, ditches, and as a weed -. the gardens and fields, often forming thickets

Geographical distribution growing series on moist riverbanks, along drainage channels, in ponds and lakes, swamps, ditches, which often forms thickets..absently found in meadows and as a weed in gardens and fields. While the stocks of raw materials in our country are enormous and many times exceed demand, a series of cultured in state farms of medicinal plants that allows to mechanize harvesting. it occurs almost throughout the European part of the USSR, in the Caucasus, south of Central Asia, the south of Western Siberia, lake Baikal and Trans-Baikal region, populated areas south of Primorsky Krai. The main areas of wild series pieces are in Belarus, Ukraine, the Krasnodar and Stavropol districts, and in some regions of Russia.

collection and drying. Gather the tops of stems and lateral branches up to 15 cm, and all the leaves are during budding in the first half of June.Raw materials, collected in time of flowering, after drying becomes unusable as when drying in vivo bloom continues (Compositae all feature), and the baskets are spiny.Sometimes cut stems, and after drying is separated short shoots and leaves, but in this case the drying should be carried out using artificial heat.On the plantations producing raw materials collection mechanized.A plant mowing, dried at a temperature of 40-45 °, separate tops and leaves and stems of the blackened portion and discarded.

collected tops and leaves of wild succession dried in the shade, laying a thin layer on canvas, burlap, paper, gauze hammocks, and often inverted.Drying is considered complete when the stems become brittle.Some flower buds on drying disclosed.

Medical raw material is a herb.Leafy tops and side shoots up to 15 cm or individual leaves are harvested during budding and quickly dried, laying a thin layer of the sun, often inverted.Readiness is determined by the degree of fragility.Store in a sealed container for 2 years.

medicinal raw materials. finished raw materials - grass succession (Herba Bidentis) consists of the leafy tops of the stems up to 15 cm in bud, sometimes without them and separate the leaves.The buds are rounded, slightly flattened on top, sometimes blooming baskets.

Smell peculiar taste bitter, slightly astringent.

GOST 15946-70 allows: moisture not more than 13%;Ash not more than 11%;browned and blackened tops of the stems and leaves no more than 3%;leafy tips of longer than 15 cm is not more than 3%;Organic impurities are not more than 2%;mineral impurities are not more than 1%.

FS 42-959-75 regulates the quality of raw materials, assembled in a mechanized way to earn some money and after drying: blackened parts of the plant no more than 8%;stems total no more than 40%;Organic impurities are not more than 3%.Other parameters are the same.

to the organic impurities include other parts of plants, including species other series.

Medical raw material is a herb, leafy tops of the leaves collected in the budding phase and the beginning of flowering at a height of 15 cm from the surface.The dried plant has a faint smell, taste astringent, slightly burning, bitter.

known that the feedstock contains volatile oil, a large quantity of carotene (60 mg%), ascorbic acid (from 100 mg to 1000%), tannins with vysokimsoderzhaniem polyphenyls, which are attributed to anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.Furthermore, a series comprises manganese, capable to move in aqueous solutions.Shelf life up to 5 years.

succession drooping - Bidens cernua L. is characterized in that a whole, not divided into segments, and often leaves along with tubular contains yellow ligulate flowers with light yellow tips (there are two varieties, one of which soderyasht reed flowers, andthe other has none).It is proved that the Flavian-noidny structure of this kind does not differ from a succession of tripartite (MI Borisov et al.), But the State is still the standard does not allow the use of this species.

chemical composition .Grass series contains not less than 10 flavonoids, including lyuteolin- D-glyukopira-nozid, butein, sulfuretin, D-glucopyranoside buteina, to 6.5% of condensed tannins, red flobafen, conditioning color of water extracts, carotene, coumarin and umbelliferonescopoletin, 60-70 mg per 100 g of vitamin C, traces of essential oil, mucilage, amines, bitterness, y-lactones, and others.

Agrotechnics cultivation.Site selection.Under a series of water-loving plants should be given a moist, well-drained sites.

fertilization. When the main plowing making 40 t / ha of humus or compost, along with mineral fertilizers at the rate of 30 kg / ha of active ingredient of nitrogen, phosphate and potash.The sowing period make granular superphosphate (8-10 kg / ha).

reproduction. alternate propagated by seeds that are sown in soil in spring or late fall.When podzimny sowing dry seeds of the crop produced in 3-fold higher than in the spring.Almost the same crop yields and spring planting stratified within two months of the seeds.North-lead drill SKON 4.2, equipped with flanges, disc coulters and Katochkov, with row spacing of 60 cm Seeding rate of 6-12 kg / ha, the depth of seal -.. 2-3 cm

Care plantations consists of 4-5inter-row hoeing and weeding the beds.In years with high humidity the plants fed nitrogen-phosphorus fertilizer at the rate of 30 kg / ha of active ingredient.Cleaning the leaves and herbaceous upper parts of the stem to produce budding stage - in the early flowering manually 2 times during the summer.
