Male flower of Sugi.It is said that about 400,000 pollens are packed in one.

The project team (PT) of the National Governors’ Association, which discusses measures against pollinosis, held an online meeting on the 23rd and put together a proposal for the government to expand the production of sugi and cypress seedlings with low pollen content. After approval at the national conference in July, we request the relevant ministries and agencies.

According to the proposal, about 40% of the people have pollinosis, and while there is a high demand for replanting trees with low pollen content, there is a shortage of necessary seedlings. In addition to developing technologies that help shorten the production period of seedlings and reduce costs, he said that a mechanism for sharing supply and demand information on seeds and seedlings over a wide area is necessary.

He also requested that the criteria for selecting forests to be replanted with priority be considered.
