Arkansas Voluntary Smoke Management Guidelines for Row Crop Burning
Safety and the health of others should be considered before burning. It is generally not safe to burn when it is breezy (winds over 15 mph) and dry (humidity less than 20 percent). So that nearby towns do not get smoked out, proper ventilation is crucial. The goal is for smoke to get up and out. Ventilation increases as inversions (rising temperature with height) weaken and winds aloft (transport winds) ramp up to carry smoke away. Higher ventilation rates lead to optimal "Category Day" (a scale from 1 to 5) classifications. Given a Category Day of "1", smoke dispersal is poor, and "5" is excellent.
