An AWMS often has an adverse impact on the air resource, so planning must consider ways to minimize degradation of air quality. Objectionable odors from confined livestock, waste storage areas, lagoons, and field application of wastes must be considered in planning an AWMS.

Emissions of ammonia and other gases from farming operations including livestock operations are associated with soil acidification via an acid-rain type phenomenon. These type emissions are also coming under scrutiny for their contribution to other environmental concerns, such as the greenhouse effect/global warming.

Air movement, humidity, and the odors air may carry from the AWMS must be considered. Windbreaks, screens, or structure modification may be required to create conditions that minimize the movement of air.
