Title: INCORPORATION OF WITHIN-SEASON YIELD GROWTH INTO A MATHEMATICAL PROGRAMMING SUGARCANE HARVEST SCHEDULING MODEL
Authors: Salassi, Michael E.

Abstract: This study focuses on the development of a optimal harvest scheduling mathematical programming model which incorporates within-season changes in perennial crop yields. Daily crop yield prediction models are estimated econometrically for major commercially grown sugarcane cultivars. This information is incorporated into a farm-level harvest scheduling linear programming model. The harvest scheduling model solves for an optimal daily harvest schedule which maximizes whole farm net returns above harvesting costs. Model results are compared for a commercial sugarcane farm in Louisiana.
