LP17485-1   Kochia scoparia
Kochia is native to southern and eastern Russia, Europe and Asia. It is now naturalised across the northern half of the United States and spreading south-westwards. It is found in many other areas of the world. Kochia is a major source of pollen.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis are common following exposure to pollen from Kochia; however, few specific studies have been reported to date. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
