Abstract


Air pollution is of major importance to the environment. Last years the findings related to air pollution of the agricultural sector and the impact on it are crucial for the future development of plant and livestock breeding sectors. The main purpose of this paper is to identify, analyze and assess, on the one hand, the impacts of agriculture on air pollution and, on the other, agriculture as a pollutant. The conclusions drawn will serve as suggestions for the introduction of practices and mechanisms in agriculture that will contribute to the improvement of the environment and in particular the quality of the air.

The object of the survey is the agrarian sector, and the subject of the research is 1) the impact of air pollution on the agrarian sector and 2) the effects of agrarian activities on air pollution. The paper is based on the following sequence: theoretical framework, analysis of statistical information and a survey of agrarian, environmental and agroecology experts. The survey is made under the scientific project DN 15/8 11.12. 2017 Sustainable multifunctional rural areas: reconsidering agricultural models and systems with increased demands and limited resources.
