PM-2.5 emissions from agricultural operations

Paper American Society of Agricultural Engineers ( 974097): 6 pp.
PM-2.5 emissions from agricultural operations
On 16 July 1997, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued updated National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Changes were in the manner in which the 24-hour PM-10 standard is implemented and a standard has been developed to regulate PM-2.5. The revised NAAQS are based on questionable data. EPA estimated that 88% of PM-2.5 emissions result from agriculture & forestry, and construction and roads.
