Abstract

This paper deals with labor-managed horticultural firms in southeastern Spain. It tries to model the decision-making processes and the conflicts between profit maximization, risk minimization, leisure, and seasonal labor as decisionmakers' objectives. A vectorial optimization model is developed and different farm types are analyzed. The selected location is Almeria where the horticultural farms are studied by reference types, which include all the possible family farms in the area. The model uses the multiobjective techniques to analyze the empirical problem. The analysis of risk incorporates some recent advances in the treatment of risk in linear programming. It is concluded that the compromise solution describes reality better than an income-maximizing or risk-minimizing solution. Copyright 1989 by Oxford University Press.
