Planning an arable farm's machinery needs - a linear programming application


, : Planning an arable farm's machinery needs - a linear programming application. Agricultural Engineer 34(1): 9-14

A LINEAR programme of a simple farm is constructed showing the parts needed to describe the constraints on labour, land, tractors and machinery and the sequencing of overlapping operations. The objective function includes the profit from crops, the cost of labour and machinery and a cost due to not carrying out operations at the optimum time. Rotational restrictions can be described either as an overall limit on the crop area or as a penalty cost of not obeying the rotation.
