Kansas

The USDA's Agricultural Air Quality Task Force will hold a meeting open to the public at Kansas State University on Sept. 21 to 22. At the meeting, the AAQTF will continue discussions on critical air quality issues relating to agriculture, said Chuck Rice, university distinguished professor of agronomy and member of the task force.

Special emphasis will be placed on obtaining a greater understanding about the relationship between agricultural production and air quality, Rice said.

The meeting will convene at 8 a.m. on both days and conclude at 5 p.m. on Sept. 21 and 4 p.m. on Sept. 22. A public comment period will be held.

The meeting will be held at the K-State Alumni Center, located at the corner of 17th and Anderson Avenue in Manhattan.

The AAQTF was created in accordance with the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996, which directed the chief of the Natural Resources Conservation Service to establish a task force to address agricultural air quality issues. The task force consists of leaders in farming, industry, health, and science. This task force advises the Secretary of Agriculture on matters related to agricultural air quality.
