Optimum allocation of resources in vegetable cultivation.
Abstract: The study has been carried out with reference to vegetable crops grown in Kakdwip block of South 24 Parganas district in West Bengal. Optimum allocation of resources has been exercised by working out an optimal crop plan for an average farm. Analytical tool of linear programming has been used for the purpose. A portion of resources has been allocated to potato for home consumption before the allocation of resources optimally. In optimal crop plan resources have been allocated in favour of two crops viz. brinjal and pointed gourd Net return earned from optimal crop plan has been found to increase by 49.79 per cent over the net return earned in existing crop plan.
