Özet:Among the environmental impacts of livestock production, especially poultry operations, manure related odor problems appear to be highly important. Major source of odor that should be considered in the design and management of manure management systems are gases, volatile organic compounds and some other particles. Hence, those sources that causes odor and health problems for housed livestock and workers. It is highly difficult to identify and measure the level of odor since it is a subjective term. Electronic nose systems (ENS) that mimic human olfaction have been widely used in this area depending on the recent advances in electronics. The aim of this study is to compare the performance of an electronic nose system with an air quality sensing module by using these both systems simultaneously. Air quality samples were collected from a poultry house’s surroundings. Each sample was subjected to both systems simultaneously. Those readings were applied to Geographical Information Systems to spatially model the odor dispersion using geostatistics.
