Current Agricultural Air Quality Issues

The Center for Agricultural Air Quality Engineering and Science (CAAQES), funded by NIFA, has provided a synopsis of current agricultural air quality issues.

Controlling air pollutants from agricultural operations needs to be addressed through careful research studies, using sound science and engineering. In the area of agricultural air quality, these include resolving issues on particulate matter, gas emissions, odors, evaluation of dispersion models, emission factor calculations, and abatement technologies, among others.

Specific issues are identified in the fact sheets below from CAAQES.
