Dust, both coarse and fine (PM10), is emitted mainly through the exhaust fans of livestock housing and especially through the exhaust fans of poultry housing. There is little known about the dispersion of the emission plume of an exhaust fans of funnel ventilation systems at a short distance of the housing (30 to 40 m). It is known that a hedgerow has a profound effect on an emission plume as both wind speed and wind direction are affected. However, up till now it is not clear how an emission plume is changed.
