Crop-Opt: evaluating land, labor and management constraints using an electronic spreadsheet and linear programming


, : Crop-Opt: evaluating land, labor and management constraints using an electronic spreadsheet and linear programming. Computers in agricultural extension programs Proceedings of the 4th international conference 28-31 January 1992, Orlando, Florida: 31-36

The 1985 US Farm Bill requirement that each farm must have a conservation plan in order to be eligible for many federal programmes has caused farmers to look at new alternatives in their crop production systems. This paper describes an approach to analysing the most profitable crop, machinery and labour combinations for an individual farm, and the value of increasing the supply of each limited resource, using electronic spreadsheet and linear programming software working interactively.
