Dust Transportation and Pastures

Ramazan Acar, Mevlüt Demiryürek


Dust transport is important for ecosystems (land, marine ecosystems) and human activities in the World. The main causes of dust transportation are drought and desertification. Negative effects of transported dust on plants; when the dust particles that are deposited on the plants cover the surface of the leaves, they can prevent the vital functions of plants such as photosynthesis and transpiration. It is stated that it can be caused by the feeds/fodders that are affected by them and by the licking of the body hair that holds them rather than not direct effects of dust or air pollutants damage to the animals in natural pasture areas. Naturally, this causes decreases in animal welfare and productivity. In addition, dusts make the administration of animals difficult.
