Metaheuristics for agricultural land use optimization. A review
TLDR
A review of metaheuristics for land use optimization reported in 50 articles including 38 case studies carried out in 16 countries concludes that the success of meta heuristics is problem-dependent and metaheURistics enable search to escape from local optima and find a good global approximation solution.
Insights into the spatially differentiated control of ammonia emissions from livestock farming in Flanders
Ammonia (NH3) deposition in natural areas is a pollution problem that is suited for spatially differentiated pollution control. The heterogeneous impact of nitrogen deposition from airborne ammonia
Genetic Algorithm Approach to a Multiobjective Land Allocation Model: A Case Study
TLDR
A weighted additive model is formulated with net profit, production of crops, and fertilizer consumption as objectives and availability of cultivable land, agriculture labour, agriculture machinery, and water as constraints for optimal land allocation as constraints.
Improving the Spatial Coherence of Nature Areas Using Genetic Algorithms
Habitat fragmentation and habitat loss are causing many species to become locally extinct. The need to restore or conserve biodiversity has initiated plans in Europe—and, more specifically, in the
LAND ALLOCATION STRATEGIES THROUGH GENETIC ALGORITHM APPROACH–A CASE STUDY
Ω Abstract - Development of agriculture depends on optimal land allocation. The development towards optimal utilization of land under cultivation and thereby increasing the production of crops and
Agriculture Production Planning Using a Hybrid Simulation and Genetic Algorithm Approach
One of the oldest and most powerful optimizing methods is mathematical programming which used as a powerful tool in decision making. In spite of widespread use of these models, these models are not

Modelling Economic Impact of Agri-environmental Policy on Dairy Farms – A Catchment Perspective
Nitrogen discharge from pastoral farming is a major non-point source pollution in some Waikato water bodies. Increases in nitrogen fertilizer use and animal stocking rate of animals have the

Multiple‐objective optimization of drinking water production strategies using a genetic algorithm
TLDR
A method for multiple-objective optimization of drinking water production was developed by combining Busacker and Gowen's “minimum cost flow” procedure for optimal use of the transport network with a genetic algorithm for optimization of other impacts.
The effects of air‐borne nitrogen pollutants on species diversity in natural and semi‐natural European vegetation
The effects of increased atmospheric nitrogen inputs, from both NOy and NHx, on diversity in various semi‐natural and natural ecosystems are reviewed. The severity of these impacts depends on abiotic
Nitrogen fixation: Anthropogenic enhancement‐environmental response
In the absence of human activities, biotic fixation is the primary source of reactive N, providing about 90–130 Tg N yr−1 (Tg = 1012 g) on the continents. Human activities have resulted in the
Applying Genetic Algorithms to Multi-Objective Land Use Planning
TLDR
This paper explores the application of multi-objective Genetic Algorithms (mGAs) to rural land use planning, a spatial allocation problem and the strengths and weaknesses of the underlying framework and each representation are identified.

TLDR
The way in which critical loads are currently being used in developing policy is outlined here, and the theoretical soundness of critical load calculation is examined, using the Steady-State Mass Balance Method for estimation of the critical load for acid deposition on soils as an example.
