What are the advantages of using linear programming.

A former has 100 acre farm. He can sell all tomatoes, lettuce, or radishes he can raise. The price he can obtain is Rs 1.00 per kg for tomatoes, Rs 0.75 a head for lettuce and Rs 2.00 per kg for radishes. The average yield per acre is 2000 kg of tomatoes, 3000 heads of lettuce and 1000 kgs of radishes. Fertilizer is available at Rs 0.50 per kg and the amount required per acre is 100 kgs each for tomatoes and lettuce, and 50 kgs for radishes. Labour required for sowing and harvesting per acre is 5 man-days for tomatoes and radishes, and 6 man-days for lettuce. A total of 400 man-days of labour are available at Rs 20.00 per man-day. Formulate this as a Linear-Programming model to

maximize the formers total proﬁt.
