Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess soil and PM10 loss from conventional winter wheat-summer fallow fields within the Columbia Plateau region of the Pacific Northwest. The results suggest that the relatively small loss of PM10 from eroding agricultural fields maintained in summer fallow can affect air quality in the Columbia Plateau. Therefore, alternative tillage practices or cropping systems are needed for minimizing PM10 emissions and improving air quality in the region
