What is Pollen Count?

Pollen count measures the number of pollen grains per cubic meter of air. Pollen counts of 50 or less are considered low, while 500 or more is high. These measures can differ according to pollen type. The higher the pollen index, the greater the chance that people suffering from hay fever will experience symptoms when they are outdoors or exposed to outdoor air.
