State Stops Measuring Pollen Level

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The state has stopped taking pollen measurements, which some Iowans could measure in stuffy noses, sneezes and red, weepy eyes.
   Crops, weeds and trees thrive in Iowa and freely loose their pollen into the air. Ragweed pollen tends to make this time of year the worst for allergy sufferers.
   The State Hygienic Lab used to take regular pollen measurements in Ankeny in late summer and early fall. But the lab quit taking the measurements this year, partly because of budget cuts.
   Some weather sources had been relying on the state measurements.
   The local office of the National Weather Service stopped including pollen counts in its daily reports when the state stopped taking the measurements.
