Fukushima cedar pollen to be tested
The Forestry Agency will test cedar pollen in Fukushima Prefecture for radiation from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, agency officials said Friday.
If high radiation is detected, the test data might be incorporated into cedar pollen forecasts the Environment Ministry will announce later this year before the pollen starts raising allergy problems in early spring.
The agency has requested funds to pay for the tests from the third supplementary budget for fiscal 2011 so they can be conducted as early as next month.
