Application of programming models to specialised bulb-growing farms

Application of programming models to specialised bulb-growing farms

The results of linear programming studies on a range of bulb-producing holdings in the Netherlands showed that the optimal size of a specialized holding on sandy soil, employing two regular workers, is from 7 to 8 ha.
