Ozone - agriculture in conflict?


, : Ozone - agriculture in conflict?. Agrarforschung 2(6): 213-216

The ozone problem is explained in relation to agriculture, and research on air quality in Switzerland is described, with special reference to the Pollumet programme, which investigated the causes of the high ozone values in summer from 1990 to 1994. In most parts of Switzerland, the availability of N oxides is the limiting factor for ozone production, and accordingly reduction of emissions of N oxides is an effective way of reducing ozone concentrations.
