Pollen grains of Canadian honey plants /: A53-1892/1993E-PDF

"This publication demonstrates to Canadian beekeepers, honey packers, and brokers the usefulness of identifying the nectar sources of their honey by pollen grain analysis. It also attempts to provide an authoritative guide by which the nectar sources of Canadian honey can be identified by pollen grain concentration. The identification of the nectar and the plants from which it is derived arms the producer of the product with additional knowledge about honey. ... The countries that routinely examine lots of exported or domestic honey are mainly in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. They include Germany, Poland, Erance, Belgium, Luxembourg, Great Britain, Romania, Hungary, Japan, India, Egypt, Argentina, Mexico, and New Zealand. Canada and the United States make limited use of pollen grain analysis because pollen grain content is not a part of their honey-grading regulations. When honey from Canada, for example, is exported to Europe, it is subjected to import regulations, which include pollen grain analysis. It is therefore very important to ascertain the type of product shipped."--Introduction, p.9 & 11 of 244.
