  • Linear programming (LP) technique is relevant in optimization of resource allocation and achieving efficiency in production planning particularly in achieving increased agriculture production of food crops (Rice, Maize, wheat, Pulses and other crops) . In this paper a Linear programming technique is applied to determine the optimum land allocation of 5 food crops by using agriculture data, with respect to various factors viz. Daily wages of labour and machine charges for the period 2004-2011… CONTINUE READING
