Last year, Western Oregon saw extremely high counts of tree and grass pollen. In fact, 2019 was one of the worst years for allergies in Lane County. In June 2019, meters recorded a grass pollen level of 526, according to Oregon Allergy Associates (for perspective, "high" is a count over 20 and "very high" is a count over 200). High pollen counts are nothing new to Lane County, largely due to Oregon's fifth largest agricultural crop, grass seed. With a total of 400,000 acres of grass seed growing in Oregon, 360,000 of those acres are in the Willamette Valley just north of Lane County.
