- ... It is demonstrated how mathematical modelling can be used to evaluate energy crops and to determine optimal production scenarios. A generalized linear programming model is presented which can be used to optimize agricultural production systems by evaluating the time-varying competition between crops for land, labor and machinery. The linear programming model uses a multi-stage structure to force a ...
