In this study, we estimate air pollutants emission from agricultural waste burning. We investigated activities related to agricultural waste burning such as crop burning rates, location, and time by region. The average crop burning rates per square meter farmland of fruits, pulses, barleys, cereals, vegetables, and special crops were , , , , , and , respectively. We estimated air pollutants emissions with pre-developed emission factors. The estimated air pollutant emission of agricultural biomass burning were CO 148,028 ton/year, 5,220 ton/year, 11 ton/year, VOC 59,767 ton/year, TSP 21,548 ton/year, 8,909 ton/year, 7,405 ton/year, and 5 ton/year. When these results compared with the entire emissions of national inventory (CAPSS), CO, VOC, account for about 17.8%, 6.2%, 6.7% of the total, respectively.
