The objective of this study was to provide a farm firm with the necessary information regarding the type of adjustments that would be required for profit maximization and optimum resource allocation. In arriving at a profit maximization combination of enterprises, the study considered federal government farm programs, irrigation development, various livestock enterprises, and grain production enterprises that included corn, grain sorghum, soybeans and wheat. To obtain an examination of all possible enterprises, size linear programming matrixes had to be developed.
