Spatial differentiation of particulates emission resulting from agricultural production in Poland M., Roman M., Roman K.K. (2019): Spatial differentiation of particulates emission resulting from agricultural production in Poland. Agric. Econ. – Czech, 65: 375-384.

The article presents the spatial differentiation of particulates emission resulting from agricultural production in Poland. Some indicators of emission have been verified and adjusted to the Polish conditions. The paper estimates PM2.5 (particulate matter, aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 µm) and PM10 (particulate matter, aerodynamic diameter less than 10 µm) emission resulting from agricultural production and agricultural soil. The findings of the research conducted by the Institute of Ecology of Industrial Areas in Katowice in cooperation with the Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal in Zabrze were the main source of those alterations. Data concerning particular sources of emission also come from the information provided by the Central Statistical Office in Warsaw, the Bank of Local Data 2017. The estimation of PM2.5 and PM10 emission was conducted based on the structure of sources of emission resulting from agriculture contained in “EMEP/EEA Emission Inventory Guidebook” in accordance with the Tier 2 method.
