Ammonia emissions from German agriculture were estimated for the years 1990, 1995, 1999 and 2010 based on current practices and trends, and forecasted for 2010 based on potentially achievable reductions and the cost involved. Emission factors for animal housing, manure storage and application were determined based on the authors own and published investigations, and agreed to at the national level. The different animal husbandry systems and manure treatment techniques common in Germany were considered in the study. Data and information on the application extent of these systems and techniques were generated by conducting surveys in different regions typical of Germany. Using this information and the data on livestock numbers, available from official livestock censuses, ammonia emissions from German agriculture were calculated.
