A Review of Literature Concerning Odors, Ammonia, and Dust from Broiler Production Facilities: 4. Remedial Management Practices Academic Article uri icon


  • Increased attention by regulatory agencies on agriculturally generated atmospheric pollutants necessitates consideration of emission reduction strategies in broiler facility management. Various remedial activities exist that can greatly reduce off-site transport of odorous compounds, ammonia and dust; however, descriptive collections of the different technologies remains limited in the literature. Therefore, this review aims to collect research findings into a comprehensive examination of both established and innovative remedial activities. Furthermore, this paper identifies management practices that warrant further research or require investigation of technology transfer potential from other livestock production types to broiler operations. Installation and operating costs are listed when available to provide insight into the economic viability of a remedial activity based on air quality needs. Used in conjunction with an appropriate pollutant management plan, the reviewed remedial practices may prove to abate odor, ammonia, and dust problems originating from broiler operations.
