The National Air Quality Site Assessment Tool (NAQSAT) is designed for voluntary use by producers and planners to assess opportunities for reducing air emissions around a livestock or poultry operation. The NAQSAT is continually updated with accurate, credible data, and provides the opportunity to investigate tradeoffs in mitigation strategies among various air pollutants and between management categories on the farm. Recently, NAQSAT was incorporated in the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service guidance to assist in resource concern identification and conservation planning efforts. The webinar will provide an overview of the tool, the national instructions from NRCS, and what we are learning from the on-the-ground training.An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.
