The purpose of this paper is to show how a mathematical programming model can be formulated to examine problems associated with a few important price policy alternatives i.e., allocation of limited funds for output price support and input price subsidy. A comprehensive survey of the problems includes Krishna (1967). The methodology delineated here is quite different from Barker and Hayami (1976) for the similar prob­lems; they applied a neoclassical demand-supply model. This paper is organized as follows: ( 1) illustrates how quadratic terms are to be shown up in the model when output price support and/or input price subsidy considered, (2) explains multi period extension of the model areas of further applications and problems.
