Scheduling of field operations

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    Scheduling of field operations in long term farm planning is examined to validate the methods for use by extension services. For this purpose a "base model" is formulated which represents reality such that it shows the same behaviour. The actual planning methoda are simplifications of the base model and are called lumped models. The lumped models differ from the base model in two aspects: (1) the solution procedure and (2) the structure. For scheduling the structure is simplified in two ways. Both ways are illustrated and the effects on the solution are given. A solution that is feasable for the lumped model~ can become impracticable in the sense that it is infeasable for the base model. Occasionally effects on the goal value are described in the literature. Further research is indicated
