A team of Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach specialists have developed the Air Management Practices Assessment Tool, a web-based online tool to help livestock and poultry producers compare odor mitigation techniques that could be useful on their farms.
"The website was developed to help livestock and poultry producers identify practices to reduce odors, and emissions of gases and dust on their farms caused by animal production," says Angie Rieck-Hinz, an ISU Extension and Outreach field agronomist and member of the project team.
According to Rieck-Hinz, the database lists options to be used from three core sources of odor and emissions in their operations – animal housing, manure storage and handling, and land application.
