Air quality in non-urban areas is usually better than in large cities. However, contributions from agriculture can be significant and are still not fully understood. This talk will focus on the formation of ozone from sources such as pesticide solvents, animal feed, and composting. In addition, I will discuss trade-offs with other emissions such as greenhouse gases as well as groundwater impacts.
