I am looking for information on: the average weight of a grain of pollen. I
am trying to figure out, as part of my research into the Bt corn and monarch
question, how much pollen is dispersed in a average corn field by weight. I
understand that there are about 25-30,000 corn plants per acre, each plant
creates 2-5 million pollen grains, and that they are dispersed (on average)
from 6-15 metres.
But I do not have a figure for the average weight of a grain of pollen.
