A stochastic programming model of the sowing plan with crop succession restrictions
A user-friendly decision support model for agricultural production planning in the Czech Republic is developed covering both the randomness of harvest parameters entering the decision problem and the complex crop succession requirements. The methods of stochastic programming are applied and the linear re-sowing constraints are developed, described in detail and incorporated in such a way that the model can be approached by software tools commonly available at farms. The model abilities are demonstrated in the particular case of production planning decision making in the South Moravian farm. The re-sowing constraints themselves are verified with respect to covering the local crop succession requirements and the validation of the model as a whole is performed using a Monte Carlo simulation.
