The study presents an optimization model on the distribution of "n" crops and the total area to be cultivated, starting from a fixed capital that will be fully and optimally used. First a model for two agricultural crops is presented, then the model is generalized to "n" crops. The model will be also described by a concrete example, the related algorithm taking the fixed capital as input data, and will generate the optimal distribution of wheat and corn crops (where n = 2) and the total necessary area to be cultivated; the economic calculations are based on available data from Romania, in the year 2014.
