Characterization, Classification and Aerial Pollutant Gases Concentrations in a Livestock Environment

E.U. Onweremadu    

Abstract: Selected soil properties and concentrations of aerial pollutant gases of a pip pen environment were investigated at the on-set of rains in 2005. A free survey technique was used in the study. Results revealed that soils are highly weathered (very low silt-clay ratios) and differed greatly at epipedons. Carbon monoxide (CO) had a good relationship (R2 = 0.54; p<0.05) with clay content and soil pH. Similar result was recorded when these soil properties were regressed to methane (CH4).These results present clay content and pH as good predictors of gas emission status in a livestock environment (R2 = 0.51) at p<0.05. Aerial pollutant gases concentrations were relatively low but there is need to study the temporal viabilities of these gases.
