FARMOR, a computer simulation program developed by this project, will allow producers to make calculations about the best mix of enterprises for their unique farm operation.
Given the limited amount of resources of a certain farm, what crops and livestock should be raised to maximize profit and how much profit fluctuation will result from production and market risks?
These questions are addressed by a computer simulation called FARMOR that will determine a combination of farm enterprises that will enable prediction of maximum profits and then will outline year-to-year profit variations that may occur.
