An Overview of Modelling in Agricultural Management

Author

Listed:
  • Anderson, Jock R.

Abstract

A synoptic review of the diverse models that have been developed for economic analysis in agricultural management is undertaken and these models are placed in broad perspective. A few practical and general problems of modelling that have been highlighted by the development of simulation procedures are also briefly reviewed.
