288 Agriculture, Emissions, and Air Quality

Oral Session
S11 Soils & Environmental Quality Agriculture contributes to a number of air quality issues including green house gases, dusts, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Sustainable agriculture will rely on management practices to minimize concerned emissions. This session will include presentations on agricultural activities and management practices that have significant impact on emissions in the effort of developing sustainable agronomic systems by minimizing environmental impact.
