Kulshreshtha, S.N.; Gould, B.W., 1984: An assessment of current energy use levels and conservation practices on Saskatchewan farms. The average farm spent $6377 per annum on energy inputs, although only $5406 per annum was for business related activities. Petrol and diesel oil formed 90% of purchases. Large farms were more energy efficient than smaller ones. Except for the pur...

A linear programming model was utilized to obtain the optimal combination of maize and soybean enterprises which maximize farm profits, subject to resource constraints. Sensitivity analysis was used to determine the effects on crop mix caused by:...

The purpose of the study is to determine the change in farm costs when fodder is produced on part of the arable acreage of wheat farms and to determine the difference in cost of production between cereal grain hay and perennial forage hay. The rel...
