Abstract:
The study was undertaken in Vilasagar village of Kataram Mandal, Jayashankar Bhupalpally district of Telangana, India. The aim of the study is to develop optimum crop plan to get more returns than the existing net average returns to farmer by using linear programming approach. Random sampling technique is used to select the farmers. The Data was collected from 30 farmers through a pre structured schedules which includes the details of land holdings, crops sown, man days, machine hours, operating costs, input costs and returns. LINGO17.0 tool is used to analyze the data. The result showed that in optimal model without consideration of land constraint has suggested to allocate maximum area of 100.32 acres of land to cotton crop out of total cropped area of 114 acres under sample farms which gave a net return of Rs. 46,33,730. There is an increase in net returns of 37% in optimal plan than existing farmer’s plan. The alternate crop plans were developed with land allocation constraint showed an increase in net returns from 3.75% to 15%.
